Monash Hydrogen Energy Research Node
Hydrogen is expected to play a critical role in global energy transition, serving as a carrier for carbon neutral energy to decarbonise sectors such as transportation, manufacturing and chemicals processing.
Navigating this transition requires an understanding of the existing and emerging technologies in the hydrogen sector and their place in the broader energy landscape.
The Monash Hydrogen Energy Node aims to assemble skills and knowledge across the hydrogen value chain to tackle complex, systems-level challenges across technological, economical, socio-political and legal dimensions.
Hydrogen research at Monash University spans technical and non-technical aspects of the value chain in conjunction with industry and research institutions.
Accelerating the scaling of sustainable and carbon neutral hydrogen production through advances in electrolysis & hydrogen production from waste.
Storage and distribution
Exploring methods of efficient hydrogen storage, from underground reservoirs, cryogenic liquid and monolithic carbon adsorption.
Systems and markets
Supporting industry through systems-level economic analysis of the international hydrogen supply chain and markets.
