Call for Seed Grant Applications – Power Fuels including Hydrogen
Applications are now open for Powerfuels Including Hydrogen Seed Grants to support projects of up to 12 months.
The NSW Decarbonisation Innovation Hub was established in June 2022 to support the NSW Government's targets to reduce emissions by 50% by 2030 and achieve net zero emissions by 2050. With funding from the NSW Office of the Chief Scientist & Engineer and The NSW Environmental Trust, the Decarbonisation Hub aims to facilitate a thriving innovation community, connecting industry with researchers and government to advance emerging decarbonisation technologies and services.
The Powerfuels Including Hydrogen Network (PFHN) is one of three networks within the NSW Decarbonisation Innovation Hub. The objective of the network is to replace current fossil fuels with Power Fuels including Hydrogen by providing a platform for technology inventors and industry end-users to develop solutions.
The PFHN Seed Grant Program has been established to develop solutions for the widespread deployment of powerfuels economy in the State of NSW. The seed funding is aimed at technology research, development and demonstration projects at universities (for projects up to 12 months) that typically face challenges in securing funding within competitive schemes run by NSW and the Commonwealth Government. Grants of between $50,000 and $100,000 (GST exclusive) are available per project and are to be supported by 1:1 cash contribution from the industry partner/s.
