QUT is at the forefront of renewable energy research, making important research breakthroughs in the lab and delivering real-world energy efficient solutions using solar, hydrogen, batteries and biofuels.
Renewable hydrogen to become the ultimate clean energy
Energy efficiency is projected to contribute up to 40% of a reduction in greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2040. Invest in QUT's renewable hydrogen energy research to help create a healthier planet for future generations.
Just one of the promising clean energy innovations where QUT is leading the way is renewable hydrogen. When produced from renewable energy sources, hydrogen is set to become the ultimate clean energy storage and transport medium of the future
Deliver clean energy solutions
The global energy sector is facing industrial, technological and economic challenges and rapid uptake of clean energy practices has never been more important.
QUT is one of the few institutions that has delivered, at scale, pilot plants to enable research and real world solutions that will progress and integrate clean energy technologies into our current and future infrastructure.
To meet the growing energy challenges head on and propel the uptake of clean, sustainable and efficient energy generation, distribution and use around the globe, QUT is expanding its comprehensive research program.
Scaling this research value chain is vital for the widespread adoption of renewable energy as a power source.
One promising focus for a clean, green energy economy is the production of hydrogen from renewable energy sources such as non-potable water and biomass.
Other inputs such as solar energy, land, accessible seawater and brine are key requirements for a globally competitive industry in renewable hydrogen energy.
