Fuel cells works, Australia: Hydrogen Guarantee of Origin Scheme: Have Your Say

The Australian Government announced that they are developing a Guarantee of Origin scheme (or certification scheme) to measure and track emissions from hydrogen production. This is part of Australia’s National Hydrogen Strategy.

We are developing a Guarantee of Origin scheme (or certification scheme) to measure and track emissions from hydrogen production. This is part of Australia’s National Hydrogen Strategy.

We have developed a proposed approach to a Guarantee of Origin scheme for hydrogen in Australia. It draws on previous stakeholder consultation and ongoing work through the International Partnership for Hydrogen and Fuel Cells in the Economy.

We are seeking feedback on our proposed approach. Your input will help shape the design of the scheme.

Read the discussion paper and have your say on our consultation hub. Submissions close on 30 July 2021.

We are hosting a seminar on Thursday 15 July 2021 from 10 to 11:30 am to talk about this discussion paper and answer any questions. Please email [email protected] to register.

Australia’s National Hydrogen Strategy sets a vision for a clean, innovative, safe and competitive hydrogen industry that benefits all Australians. It aims to position our industry as a major global player by 2030.

The hydrogen strategy:

  • explores Australia’s clean hydrogen potential
  • considers future scenarios with wide ranging growth possibilities
  • outlines an adaptive approach that equips Australia to scale up quickly
  • includes showcases from each state and territory
  • details nationally coordinated actions involving governments, industry and communities

An early priority action item in the strategy is to develop a certification scheme to measure and track the emissions associated with hydrogen production.

Our department has developed a proposed approach to a Guarantee of Origin scheme for hydrogen in Australia. This draws on domestic stakeholder consultation in 2020 and ongoing work through the International Partnership for Hydrogen and Fuel Cells in the Economy.
