Woodside and Monash have joined forces to develop a state-of-the-art ‘living laboratory’ and long-term research partnership to support Australia’s low-carbon transition and investigate hydrogen's role.
Monash University has engaged ENGIE to investigate the feasibility of liquid hydrogen production to support end-users in the Monash precinct, supported by the Victorian Government. In 2021, Monash University and ENGIE committed to a long-term alliance to explore zero-carbon solutions.
Monash University collaborated with Geoscience Australia to develop a technoeconomic tool to model the production of green hydrogen in Australia using grid electricity.
ANT Energy Solutions
Dr Simonov and Professor MacFarlane are collaborating with an emerging Australian company, ANT Energy Solutions, to develop a portable electrolyser which could be transported wherever cheap renewable energy is available.
AGL and the Australian Centre for Electromaterials (ACES) are investigating low-cost, high-activity H2 producing electrodes. AGL supports a key feature of the project directed toward integration of renewables into the energy network.
Clayton H2 Cluster
In 2022, Monash University signed an MoU with the Clayton H2 Cluster to support the scaling and commercialisation of hydrogen technologies. This cluster includes CSIRO, Sumitomo Australia and GrapheneX.
