What do you get?

Matched grant funding from $30 million to up to $70 million.

Who is this for?

Hydrogen industry-led consortia with the ability to develop and implement clean hydrogen projects in the Townsville region.


The Regional Hydrogen Hubs Program – Townsville Region Grant opportunity will work towards achieving the Government’s Powering Australia Plan to support the adoption and production of hydrogen to help reduce Australia’s emissions by 43% by 2030.

Hydrogen hubs co-locate producers and users of hydrogen in metropolitan, regional and remote areas. The International Energy Agency and other analysts have identified the development of hydrogen hubs as a cost-effective route to achieving scale for an emerging industry.

This investment will further support the development of Australia’s green hydrogen industry, assisting Australia to achieve its emission reduction goals while continuing to grow local industries and support the transition to low-cost green energy.

The intended outcomes of the program are to:

  • make green hydrogen available for domestic and export use
  • establish domestic green hydrogen supply chains
  • establish green hydrogen export pathways
  • support existing industry to use green hydrogen
  • establish a new industry built around the availability of green hydrogen in the Townsville region
  • create new regional jobs and increased capability of local workforce
  • build social acceptance of green hydrogen
  • reduce the cost of green hydrogen production.

Applications will be assessed in two stages. You will first submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) at Stage 1 and if shortlisted, you will be invited to submit a grant application at Stage 2.
