Australian, state and territory governments agree that hydrogen presents an opportunity for Australia to lead in the emerging global market for low and zero emissions energy.

The COAG Energy Council established the Hydrogen Working Group to develop a national strategy to:

  • build a clean, innovative and competitive hydrogen industry
  • position Australia’s hydrogen industry as a major global player by 2030

Chaired by Australia’s Chief Scientist, the working group is:

  • developing the national strategy
  • coordinating the approach to projects that support hydrogen industry development


Topics cover hydrogen for:

  • exports
  • transport
  • the gas network
  • industrial users
  • electricity systems
  • cross-cutting issues such as research and development, safety and innovation

To develop the strategy the working group will:

  • conduct public consultation
  • work closely with industry, experts, end users, and environment and community groups
  • carry out domestic kick-start projects to help build momentum for hydrogen in Australia

Read about the projects and plan to develop the strategy in the National Hydrogen Strategy and Workplan on the COAG Energy Council website.

Our role

We support the working group by coordinating the activities of the Australian and state and territory governments in developing the strategy. We also support the working group’s Steering Committee and Stakeholder Advisory Panel.
