- cooperate on registration and guarantee schemes of origin for the international trade in renewable hydrogen;
- identify challenges and opportunities to accelerate the production and deployment of clean hydrogen and other zero-carbon fuels;
- identify the opportunities for investment in the renewable hydrogen supply chain for trade between Australia and Germany, respectively the EU.
“The Smart Energy Council, through its Hydrogen Australia division, is delighted to be partnering with the German Energy Agency on the development and certification of renewable hydrogen, renewable ammonia and carbon neutral powerfuels. These fuels are critical to building a prosperous, zero carbon economy.”John Grimes, chief executive of the Smart Energy Council.
