Australia is well-positioned to play a global role in the emerging hydrogen energy market. The development of a hydrogen export industry simultaneously presents diverse flow-on opportunities for domestic decarbonisation of Australia’s energy, resources and industrial sectors.
Australia is already an energy export superpower. We have expertise and infrastructure that can be leveraged to develop hydrogen energy export supply chains. We are close to key emerging hydrogen import markets in Asia. Our political, social and economic stability, and established regional trading relationships, makes us a trusted trade partner. Low sovereign risk means we are attractive to large infrastructure investors.
The Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade) is the Australian Government’s international trade promotion and investment attraction agency. We generate market information and insights, promote Australian capability, and facilitate connections through our extensive global network.
