Experts answer your green hydrogen FAQs
Green Hydrogen could play a big role in helping countries cut their CO2 emissions, but what exactly is it and how can it be used?
The ARC Training Centre for The Global Hydrogen Economy (GlobH2E), co-directed by UNSW Sydney Scientia Professor Rose Amal and the University of Sydney's Prof. Kondo-Francois Aguey-Zinsou, is leading the development of innovative approaches to efficient, cost-effective hydrogen energy generation, storage and utilisation, with local and overseas research and industry partners.
Prof. Amal and her UNSW colleagues, Prof. Iain MacGill (project lead), Prof. Sami Kara and Dr. Rahman Daiyan, along with the University of Sydney's Prof. Kondo-Francois Aguey-Zinsou, are leading the Australian consortium for the HySupply Project, which explores the feasibility of an Australia-Germany hydrogen value chain.
To make their expert knowledge accessible, UNSW has published an article in which the HySupply team experts have addressed the most commonly asked questions about the current and potential uses of hydrogen, including:
- How is green hydrogen created?
- What makes green hydrogen green?
- How do hydrogen and batteries compare?
- What applications can hydrogen be used for?
- What are the barriers to widespread use of hydrogen?
- How might new advances in energy tech address these barriers?
