Hydrogen Mobility Australia is a new voice for the hydrogen industry

Hydrogen Mobility Australia has announced its establishment as a new voice of the hydrogen industry in Australia, with a vision of a society built on clean and renewable energy technology — including hydrogen-powered transport.

With a membership comprising vehicle manufacturers, energy companies and infrastructure providers, Hydrogen Mobility Australia will be a national body representing the hydrogen sector. It will work to accelerate the commercialisation of new hydrogen and fuel cell technologies across the entire hydrogen value chain, including production, export and storage for transport and stationary applications in Australia and overseas.

Understanding that collaboration between industry and government will be essential to support its agenda, Hydrogen Mobility Australia has established a collaborative forum made up of industry and government representatives to uncover opportunities and drive the future of the hydrogen sector in Australia. The organisation has also announced the appointment of Claire Johnson as its chief executive officer.

Johnson has extensive experience in policy development and government relations across the private and public sectors, including most recently leading Toyota Australia’s advocacy for the introduction of hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles to Australia. She has been welcomed into her new position by Hydrogen Mobility Australia Chairman Ian Mutton.

“Claire’s proven track record in building relationships with government and industry will be of great benefit to Hydrogen Mobility Australia as the hydrogen sector in Australia starts to build momentum,” Mutton said.

“I am confident Claire’s leadership of Hydrogen Mobility Australia will position the organisation to be a highly effective advocate for its members. The board of directors is looking forward to having her lead the organisation.”

Hydrogen Mobility Australia’s establishment comes in the wake of a range of commitments to hydrogen projects made by all levels of government. The organisation looks forward to continuing to engage with the Australian Government as it develops its approach to zero-emission vehicles and the hydrogen economy more broadly.

Members include BOC, BP Australia, Caltex Australia, CNH Industrial, Coregas, Hyundai Australia, ITM Power, Siemens, Toyota Australia and Viva Energy Australia.
