The federal government's momentous A$1-million grant, poised to unlock the potential of a clean hydrogen market in Darwin. This extraordinary endeavor unfolds through a collaborative effort between industry leaders, including INPEX, Santos, Xodus, and Australia's esteemed national science agency, the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO). Over the course of 18 months, the Darwin Clean Hydrogen Hub will conduct an exhaustive feasibility study, delving into market demand, renewable energy sites, essential infrastructure, storage requirements, and intricate supply chains.This research endeavor beautifully complements the Territory government's ongoing partnership with CSIRO, INPEX, Santos, and other industry representatives. Together, they are laying the foundation for a carbon capture and storage common-user hub at Middle Arm, a visionary sustainable low-emissions precinct poised to generate a staggering 20,000 low-emission jobs.Tetsu Murayama, President Director Australia at INPEX, expressed deep appreciation for the Australian government's grant, emphasizing the study's potential to shape the future of the hydrogen value chain in northern Australia. Having long been an integral part of the Darwin business community, INPEX is proud to contribute to the Northern Territory's cleaner energy future through this transformative study.Northern Territory Chief Minister Natasha Fyles warmly welcomes this investment, recognizing its dual impact on renewable energy and job creation. She highlights the harmonious collaboration between INPEX, the Territory government, and other stakeholders, emphasizing the long-term social benefits this development will bring to the community.This ambitious endeavor to establish a clean hydrogen industry not only promises to provide cleaner energy to the Northern Territory and the broader region but also paves the way for a prosperous future for the community, brimming with opportunities for job seekers.
