Future Fuels CRC gets green light
The Assistant Minister for Science, Jobs and Innovation Senator the Hon Zed Seselja has recently announced that the Federal Government’s Cooperative Research Centres (CRC) program will be co-funding Future Fuels CRC with $26.25m.
The combined investment from the Commonwealth, Australia’s Energy Industry and Universities (cash and in-kind support) will total over $90m over the life of the proposed seven-year research program.
The Future Fuels CRC will undertake research and development to transition Australia’s energy infrastructure to a low-carbon economy using fuels such as hydrogen and biogas. Collaborating with over 60 companies, 6 universities, the energy market operator and 2 regulators, the CRC will develop solutions for current infrastructure and equipment to use these new fuels today and well into the future.
The University of Melbourne and the Melbourne Energy Institute are proud to be a part of this ground-breaking research program.
