The State of South Australia has been a major leader in the energy transition in this country, taking the early risk to invest heavily in back-up battery storage for its electricity grid. 

Originally criticised for this bold move, it is now being seen as a market leader both in Australia and globally.  And it is the same with hydrogen, with the new State Government making some bold promises on the h2 front. 

In June Star Scientific’s Deputy CEO, Matt Hingerty, attended the Australian Hydrogen Council’s National Conference in Adelaide, where the new State Premier (Governor), Peter Malinauskas, doubled down on his promise to build a 200MW “Hydrogen Power Station” by the end of 2025. 

We see a few technical issues in meeting that promise within that timetable by the orthodox combustion route, but at Star Scientific, we know a better way!
