Research supporting the production and export of green hydrogen is among projects sharing $7.5 million in ARC Linkage Program funding.
The round of grants, announced on Friday, supports 18 collaborative projects. Three grants named in a statement from federal education minister Dan Tehan are:
- $584,731 to develop a new method of producing, storing, and exporting green hydrogen using Australian resources. (Curtin University)
- $422,881 to produce more durable and powerful energy storage devices by developing high voltage cathode coated with nanoionic thin layers. (University of New South Wales)
- $540,000 to develop technology to accurately assess the performance of aluminium cladding, glass facades and skylights under severe hailstorm events. (University of Melbourne)
Tehan said of the project with Curtin: ““Exporting green hydrogen as a solid will reduce costs, increase safety and simplify overseas processing which will put Australia at the forefront of an emerging renewable energy market leading to new jobs, new business opportunities and environmental dividends.”
Goals of the Linkage program include “development of long-term strategic research alliances between higher education organisations and industry and other research end-users.”
