I predict hydrogen is going to become the next energy transition battle ground. On one-side there will be the coal and gas companies and the other the renewables industry. Good to see @AustralianLabor come down on the side of #renewables today. #climateelection2019
Some thoughts on the ALP's announcement today... 1. This Plan to make Australia a renewable hydrogen exporter a key step to making Australia a renewable superpower. But there are other renewable export opportunities - services, DC cables etc
2. Renewable hydrogen is going to play an important role in lowering the climate pollution of some of our key trading partners such as Japan as the #OneEarth project shows
3. Here in Australia renewable hydrogen is likely to play a key role in heavy transport/freight and some industrial processes, but EVs will be more efficient than hydrogen cars and we should electrify heating as much as possible.
4. Currently CEFC and ARENA can't fund fossil fuel projects as I understand, so its a good play by the ALP to support renewable hydrogen, but not hydrogen from coal (though they will get pressure to do so).
5. This announcement also shows the important role that @ARENA_aus plays in developing Australia's renewable energy future. To date $1.3billion has been cut from ARENA's budget. The ALP should return this funding.
6. It is also essential that we don't see a replication of what is happening in the gas industry. We want to ensure Australian's enjoy the benefits of low-cost renewables, as well as our friends overseas. The ALP should also commit to continuing the current renewables boom...
When the boom turns to bust you lose the supply chain, economies of scale and the cost advantage that comes with a continually growing industry.
7. A good explainer article about renewable hydrogen can be found here - abc.net.au/news/2017-05-1…
8. A lovely explainer video about renewable hydrogen exports can be found here - facebook.com/GetUpAustralia…. Thanks @GetUp
@TimBuckleyIEEFA here are my thoughts on the ALP's hydrogen announcement today.
Correction - just over $1billion has been cut from ARENA's budget
