Hydrogen is a clean, renewable fuel that can be used in transport, power supply and a range of industrial processes. It’s already key for a range of industries that provide vital inputs into our mining and agricultural sectors, including manufacturing.

Hydrogen can be produced from a variety of sources including renewables such as solar, wind and biomass.

Queensland Hydrogen Industry Strategy

We’re supporting the development of a sustainable hydrogen industry in Queensland. To help do this, we’ve released the Queensland Hydrogen Industry Strategy 2019-2024 (PDF icon 3.4 MB).

The strategy focuses on:

  • supporting innovation
  • facilitating private sector investment
  • ensuring an effective policy framework
  • building community awareness and confidence
  • facilitating skills development for new technology.

Queensland Hydrogen Industry Development Fund

As part of the strategy, we’ve established a $15 million industry development fund to support hydrogen projects in Queensland.

The key objectives of the Hydrogen Industry Development Fund are to:

  • grow Queensland’s hydrogen industry and attract investment in hydrogen related developments and infrastructure to produce hydrogen
  • enhance the technical and commercial capacity of Queensland’s hydrogen industry to produce, utilise, store and transport hydrogen (or its derivatives)
  • develop and strengthen the Queensland supply chain for hydrogen applications and deployment
  • raise community awareness about the safe and sustainable use of hydrogen
  • create new jobs, skills and training opportunities in hydrogen, particularly in regional areas of Queensland
  • catalyse private sector investment and leverage third party funding to support investment in, and development of Queensland’s capacity to produce, store, transport and use hydrogen.

Expressions of interest for round one are now closed.
