A Hydrogen Roadmap for South Australia

Accelerating South Australia’s transition to a clean, safe and sustainable hydrogen economy.

On 8 September 2017 the South Australian Government announced A Hydrogen Roadmap for South Australia The Roadmap sets out clear pathways to capitalise on South Australia’s competitive advantages and accelerate the State’s transition to a clean, safe and sustainable producer, consumer and exporter of hydrogen.

The Roadmap was developed following close consultation with industry, Ministerial visits to South Korea and Japan and South Australia’s Green Hydrogen Study, a comprehensive techno-economic study conducted by Advisian in conjunction with Siemens and Acil Allen.

A call for proposals for hydrogen infrastructure projects under South Australia’s $150M Renewable Technology Fund has also been released. Submissions close 23 October 2017.

A call for tenders to supply at least six hydrogen fuel cell buses for use by Adelaide Metro, as well as the supporting hydrogen production and refuelling infrastructure has been released. This is available via the SA Tenders website. Submissions close 9 October 2017.

The Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) announced in May 2017 that ‘exporting renewable energy’ in the form of hydrogen, ammonia or embodied in mineral exports, is one of its four new investment priorities.

An interactive hydrogen map has been developed as a tool to assist investors and project developers to identify potentially suitable sites in South Australia to deploy hydrogen infrastructure.
