Australia's Chief Scientist

A message from the Chief Scientist: Australia’s Hydrogen Potential

“Imagine a zero-emissions fuel that exists on Earth in abundance, can be easily extracted using basic chemistry and offers jobs and investment in Australia for decades to come.

That substance exists: it’s called hydrogen.”

Dr Finkel has written a letter highlighting the opportunities presented by a hydrogen fuel economy, to accompany the release of the COAG Energy Council Working Group’s issues papers on the development of a National Hydrogen Strategy.

The full letter is available on the Department of Industry, Innovation and Science website.
