The New South Wales and Victorian Governments are investing $10 million each in grant funding to co-deliver the Hume Hydrogen Highway initiative, an Australian-first renewable hydrogen refuelling network.
The joint grant initiative will support the design and delivery of the Hume Hydrogen Highway between Melbourne and Sydney – Australia’s busiest freight corridor.
The initiative will support the development of at least four refuelling stations along the Hume Highway and will support approximately 25 hydrogen-powered long-haul heavy freight vehicles to adopt zero-emission technology, such as fuel cells.
This work is part of our clean energy transition and will help support Victoria’s long-term target of net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
It also supports the objectives outlined in the 2021 Renewable Hydrogen Industry Development Plan.
Applications are now open and must be submitted by 2pm (Eastern Daylight Time) Friday 28 October 2022
