Our research reports are usually only available to our participant organisations, but these publications have been been made public to support the wider effort to transition to future fuels:

 

Australia’s massive opportunity for underground hydrogen storage

October 21, 2021

For Australia to adopt hydrogen as a widespread energy carrier, millions of tonnes of storage options will be needed to buffer the fluctuations in supply and demand, both for domestic use and for export. Future Fuels CRC’s latest research maps out the high-level availability of potential sites in Australia and develops a method for selecting suitable storage sites that match hydrogen production needs.

Scenario and broad-scale modelling of future energy systems

October 14, 2021

Future Fuels CRC’s latest broad-scale modelling shows: Economic and job growth in all regions of Australia on the way to net zero, Australia would need to invest in direct CO2 extraction and current policy settings limit hydrogen development.

National public survey on hydrogen finds widespread support

August 18, 2021

A national survey of over three thousand Australians found that 65% of Australians already support using hydrogen as a fuel and that rose to 90% once respondents were provided with more facts about hydrogen and its uses.

Regulatory mapping for Hydrogen and Biogas in Australia

March 24, 2021

Australia’s gas infrastructure is currently subject to a range of regulations that were designed for a natural-gas only network system. This research project thoroughly assessed Australia’s current regulatory framework to identify the regulations that will require modernisation to facilitate the use of future fuels within Australia’s energy networks and align them with the goals of Australia’s National Hydrogen Strategy.

Quick Summary - Domestic gas appliance review and test program RP1.4-01

September 23, 2020

The purpose of this project was to investigate the performance of Type A appliances when fuelled with blends of up to 10 vol% hydrogen in natural gas. The methodology, in part, follows the existing logic of AS/NZS 5263.0 and appliances were tested with a primary fuel of 10 vol% hydrogen in natural gas and a limit gas with an additional 13 vol% hydrogen (equating to 21.7 vol% hydrogen in natural gas).
