Western Australia’s Hydrogen Industry Minister is set to promote the state’s potential as a hydrogen provider at the World Hydrogen Summit 2022.

Western Australian Hydrogen Industry Minister, Alannah MacTiernan, will represent the state’s renewable hydrogen capability and identifying opportunities related to the Joint Declaration of Intent that was signed between the Australian and German Governments in 2020.

“Western Australia has an extraordinary opportunity to become a global renewable hydrogen industry leader and help our international partners meet their future energy and emissions reduction goals,” Ms MacTiernan said.

The Western Australian Government’s comprehensive Renewable Hydrogen Strategy, combined with the Joint Declaration of Intent, means Western Australia is well placed to benefit from Germany’s escalating demand for green hydrogen.

As part of the mission, Ms MacTiernan will participate in the World Hydrogen Summit 2022 in the Netherlands, focused on global hydrogen supply chains, and use the opportunity to present the Western Australia Government’s Renewable Hydrogen Industry Prospectus.

“International collaboration is a key component in the transition to a clean energy future and the Western Australian Government’s participation at the World Hydrogen Summit 2022 aims to accelerate the State’s position in the renewable hydrogen supply chain,” Ms MacTiernan said.

The mission will also serve as the Western Australian Government’s first face-to-face meeting with the Port of Rotterdam since a Memorandum of Understanding was signed between Western Australia and Europe’s largest sea port.

Strengthening relationships with international renewable hydrogen importers has been a major focus for the Western Australian Government and is developing a detailed supply chain model to review potential bottlenecks and factors affecting the export industry.

Current global demand for hydrogen is estimated at more than 70 million tonnes a year and the value of Australia’s low-emissions hydrogen exports could reach $2.2 billion by 2030 and $5.7 billion by 2040.

“International collaboration is a key component in the transition to a clean energy future and the Western Australian Government’s participation at the World Hydrogen Summit 2022 aims to accelerate the State’s position in the renewable hydrogen supply chain,” Ms MacTiernan said.
