CEC Submission_Hydrogen Headstart design_August 2023



Posted on 7 August, 2023


The Clean Energy Council (‘the CEC’) welcomes the opportunity to respond to the Australian Government’s consultation paper on the new Hydrogen Headstart program.

We welcome the Australian Government’s $2 billion funding commitment to Hydrogen Headstart in the Federal Budget. The program is a critical step in scaling up Australia’s green hydrogen sector and signalling our intentions to become a significant producer in this emerging global market over the longer-term. With the real prospect of a number of other regions stealing a march on Australia in activating their domestic green hydrogen sectors, speed will now be key for remaining a credible contender in the clean energy investment race.
