A new collaboration between the CSIRO and the University of British Columbia will seek to drive the research and uptake of new and emerging hydrogen technologies.
According to the CSIRO, the collaboration will enhance research and industry partnerships between Canada and Australia on clean energy, providing opportunities for greater economic growth for both countries.
“CSIRO is conducting hydrogen research along the entire value chain, and we look forward to collaborating with UBC to help facilitate demonstrations that will clear the path to market for new technologies,” CSIRO Energy Director Dr Tim Finnigan said.
“By working together we can pool resources and expertise for mutually beneficial outcomes.”
UBC Faculty of Applied Science Dean James Olson said UBC was thrilled to join with CSIRO in advancing the objectives of Mission Innovation’s Renewable and Clean Hydrogen Innovation Challenge.
“UBC has long been a leader in hydrogen fuel cell-related research and development in Canada, and we are eager to draw on our vast expertise in hydrogen production, storage, distribution and use to help pave the way to a cleaner future,” Mr Olson said.
