Barriers to Green Hydrogen technology development and deployment: the case of Australia

Abstract: Each country chooses its own path towards the transition to net zero. This paper focuses on the features of Australia's transition to net zero through the implementation of hydrogen initiatives. Australia aims for global leadership in hydrogen technologies, as it states in its strategy. It is also a country-continent with a unique geographical position, surrounded by oceans, which gives it many advantages, as well as a number of notable challenges that create barriers to the introduction and implementation of energy technologies. Through the analysis of the database of suspended and closed hydrogen projects,  I identify how these challenges translate into specific barriers to the development and deployment of green hydrogen technologies in Australia.
