RP1.2-02 Techno-economic modelling of fuel production processes

Executive Summary

This project develops techno-economic models of the major future fuels production processes.

The project builds on RP1.2-01. It simulates possible ways to produce hydrogen and biomethane. These simulations form the core technology and economic process information on which to base project decisions on the most prospective production processes and also integrate with and inform the energy systems modelling activity (RP1.1-02).

Update (November 24, 2023):

Future Fuels CRC has publicly released a new Summary Report outlining the key modelling results for the 22 hydrogen production pathways and various hydrogen carriers (green ammonia, green methanol, liquid hydrogen) considered in this project. (Click on the green text to access the report).

Project Webinar 23 May 2023 – Exploring the race to hydrogen production viability

Watch our webinar from 23 May 2023 to discover valuable insights into the race towards hydrogen production market viability. Simon Smart, University of Queensland will share the latest techno-economic analysis of 22 different hydrogen production pathways. Simon will also draw on his recent experience from his modelling work on the extensive Net Zero Australia modelling study. This research was created as a part of Future Fuels CRC’s project on Techno-economic modelling of fuel production processes RP1.2-02

Following Simon’s presentation we were joined by industry panellists for the latest perspectives on hydrogen market development and analysis:

Jeremy Stone, Non-Exec Director J-Power
Vikram Singh, Head of Hydrogen Development, AGIG
Marc Senders, H2Perth Project Manager, Woodside Energy
Benjy Lee, Benjy Lee Consulting (Moderator)
