$70m Townsville Region Hydrogen Hub Grants Now Open
The Australian Government is delivering on its commitment to support the development of a hydrogen hub in the Townsville region.
Applications have now opened for grants of up to $70 million. The grant opportunity aims to stimulate investment in the development of the emerging Townsville hydrogen sector, and will be open to any eligible consortium with the ability to develop and implement a green hydrogen hub in the Townsville region.
Producers, consumers, and potential exporters of hydrogen across industrial, transport, export and energy markets are encouraged to investigate this opportunity with the guidelines available below.
There will be a two-stage open competitive assessment process:
- an initial expression of interest stage where the relative merit and business case of applications will be assessed
- short listed applicants can then submit a full proposal upon invitation.
The hub will support Australia’s transition to a clean energy economy, create jobs and encourage decarbonisation in hard-to-abate sectors, such as industrial processing and transport.
