Major Japanese multinational, Sumitomo Corporation, signed a memorandum of understanding to formalise its partnership with Gladstone Ports Corporation, Gladstone Regional Council, CQ University Australia and Australian Gas Infrastructure Group to develop Australia’s first hydrogen ecosystem in Gladstone, Central Queensland. Publicly-owned renewable energy generator, CleanCo, has also signed the agreement.
Gladstone is well placed to provide renewable hydrogen to the world. Existing water and gas pipeline infrastructure and publicly-owned ports, all provide critical access to domestic and international markets.
Countries around the world are looking to Queensland to help them meet their decarbonisation targets through the supply of cleaner, cheaper energy.
