Australia injects $20m into green hydrogen scale-up


The Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) has announced that it will invest AUD20m (US$12.9m) into Wollongong, Australia, based startup Hysata to demonstrate their hydrogen electrolyser technology at commercial scale, on behalf of the Australian government.

The project will enable Hysata to develop and test a five megawatt (MW) unit at their new manufacturing facility in Port Kembla. According to ARENA, the electrolyser array will then be installed in situ for further testing and validation before it is relocated to Queensland.

This will be backed by funding worth AUD3m (US$1.9m) by Queensland government-owned power company Stanwell corporation, which also provides the site and facilities for the field deployment.

Founded at the University of Wollongong, Hysata aims to pioneer electrolysis technology with its capillary fed electrolyser cell – a technology that eliminates almost all resistance during electrolysis.
