On 2 August 2019, the Smart Energy Council and the Australian Association of Hydrogen Energy (AAHE) announced the formation of Hydrogen Australia, a new force for advocacy and action to support the development of the emerging hydrogen industry in Australia.
As a division of the Smart Energy Council, Hydrogen Australia advocates for the development of the industry and the uptake of hydrogen.
The division seeks to promote the use of hydrogen as a clean and sustainable fuel and energy storage medium in Australia.
