Australian Hydrogen Council welcomes GHD to the fold

The Australian Hydrogen Council (AHC) has welcomed GHD as a Corporate Member to share its extensive global industry knowledge and experience to help build a secure, clean, resilient, hydrogen-based energy future for Australia.

GHD primary council representative Rory Quinn brings more than 20 years of industry experience to the role, with a strong focus on future energy options. One of his first tasks for AHC will be to coordinate GHD’s participation and contribution to the council’s Policy Advisory, Infrastructure and Technical committees.

GHD’s AHC membership follows its contribution to Australia’s National Hydrogen Strategy.

“Our AHC membership reflects our commitment and passion for enabling a robust, sustainable hydrogen industry in Australia,” GHD Executive General Manager Phil Duthie said.

“We’re excited about the opportunity to work with other members and the broader industry to help lay the groundwork and ensure Australia realises the enormous potential of hydrogen.

“Like GHD, the AHC recognises the narrow window of opportunity here. It’s time to move from debate to action. A collaborative, innovative and transparent alliance must now take place between industry, government and community to enable the necessary investment and ensure that the benefits are realised as soon as possible.”

AHC CEO Dr Fiona Simon added, “The Australian hydrogen industry is growing and our members are at the forefront, leading the way in hydrogen technology and innovation to build a clean and resilient energy future. I am delighted to welcome GHD to our membership and look forward to working with them to ensure that Australia becomes a global leader in supplying hydrogen around the world.”

In Australia, GHD is working with clients on a vast range of hydrogen-related projects across Queensland, South Australia, Western Australia, Victoria and New South Wales.

“In responding to our client needs, we can draw from the in-depth knowledge of our global technical teams as well as leverage our first-hand experience in the development of similar emerging industries,” Duthie said. “We look forward to sharing our insights and expertise with AHC.

“We believe the continued close collaboration between governments, industry, researchers and communities in the coming year will be vital to Australia realising the potential of hydrogen. We’re very excited to be working with our clients, their communities and the broader industry to help foster this potential.”
