Australia Seeks German Expertise To Strengthen Their Green Hydrogen Future

Energy Markets Feed

The Australian Smart Energy Council and Deutsche Energie-Agentur will work together to develop a scheme to certify renewable hydrogen and carbon-neutral power fuels.

The Australian Smart Energy Council and Germany’s energy agency, Deutsche Energie-Agentur, announced a partnership on Tuesday that will see them cooperate to ensure that customers are able to buy certifiably green hydrogen, rather than variants made from fossil fuels.

“Australia will be a major producer of renewable hydrogen, renewable ammonia and renewable metals and Germany will be a major consumer of these products. It makes absolute sense for Australia’s Smart Energy Council to directly partner with the German Energy Agency to help build these industries and develop a credible certification scheme,” said Smart Energy Council Chief Executive John Grimes.
