Proposal for an economic study into producing hydrogen and ammonia for domestic use and export

The University of Melbourne Energy Institute (MEI) seeks funding for a economic study into producing hydrogen and ammonia, for domestic use and export, from renewable energy in the Spencer Gulf region of South Australia. This document describes the aims of this study, its scope, technology pathways, the organisations involved, other potential stakeholders, study timing, and funding requirements. 2. Why study renewable hydrogen? As the world decarbonises its energy supplies, some countries may find that their in-­ÔÇÉcountry renewable energy resources are limited or uneconomic. These countries may then consider renewable energy imports. Clearly Australia possesses remarkable renewable energy resources that may supply such markets.
