The Fyshwick public hydrogen refueling station in the Australian Capital Territory is the first to achieve official zero carbon certification.
It is believed to be just the second hydrogen station in the world, after one in Halle, Belgium.
The Smart Energy Council awarded the zero-carbon certification after appointing carbon accounting auditors to oversee the operation.
The council is Australia’s peak body for solar, storage, and smart energy management, lobbying, promoting, and advocating on behalf of about 1000 member companies and agencies active in these fields.
The hydrogen refueling station in Canberra was the first to open to the public in Australia, just three days before a second station opened in Altona, Victoria, at the former Toyota car factory.
The station in Canberra produces its small amounts of hydrogen using mainly renewable energy from the Hornsdale wind farm in South Australia.
