Renewable hydrogen costs “expected to plummet” by 2030 – here’s how

electricity long exposure

Renewable hydrogen costs to plummet. Following in 2021 where renewable hydrogen emerged as a crucial lifeline for emissions, intensive industries facing growing pressures to de-carbonise, 2022 is set to mark an inflection point for hydrogen investment – where investment and production surge to new highs – provided governments get on board. New analysis from energy […]

Bioenergy Roadmap Review

Australia’s Bioenergy Roadmap Review is out. Designed to help inform future policy and investment decisions, the roadmap sets out a vision for a sustainable bioenergy industry that delivers lower emissions, regional growth, energy resilience and waste management benefits for Australia. So, what does it mean for us? The benefits for Australia According to the roadmap, […]

Australia plans to improve grid stability and flags caps to renewable energy connections

grass close-up

In light of rapid uptake of renewables, Australia is looking to improve its power grid’s stability to counter generation risks and overburdening of the transmission system. The country’s transmission system and grid lines were initially developed for coal-generated energy. However, nearly two-thirds of coal-fired capacity in the National Electricity Market (NEM), is due to close […]

Biomass and baseload power: The reality of turning the electricity grid green

Biomass and baseload power

If ageing coal-fired and gas power stations are the ugly stepsisters of the electricity world, most renewables are the carriage that turns into a pumpkin after midnight (or as the sun goes down). We need more than hope and magic dust as we transition away from traditional fossil fuel generators to a new energy economy. […]

Hunt on for fixes for weak electricity grids

Fix weak electricity grids

Fix weak electricity grids. Victoria’s north-west has been chosen as the case study for a new project looking for ways to connect renewable energy to weaker parts of the electricity network. Monash University researchers selected the West Murray region because its lack of system strength is holding back development of new projects, despite the climate […]

Why hydrogen needs to take centre stage at COP26

cop26 cover

Hydrogen is likely to play a crucial role in the pursuit of energy transition over the coming years. However, the UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow in November will be the acid test that determines whether involved players are now prepared to put their words into action. Having net zero targets are […]

COP26: Carbon capture & storage and low-carbon hydrogen

globe

For these vital net-zero technologies, the next five years will be critical. Carbon capture & storage (CCS) and low-carbon hydrogen have a pivotal role to play in meeting the challenge of a net-zero future. Yet despite project pipelines ballooning over the past year, confirmed future capacity is a fraction of what’s required to achieve the […]
