About the Powerfuels including Hydrogen Network

The Powerfuels including Hydrogen Network supports the de-risking of powerfuels including hydrogen projects, to address specific and systemic barriers through design, analysis, advanced research, and engineering services.

PFHN has stakeholders across NSW, Australia and globally, making it a nexus for the acceleration of NSW’s industrial translation of mature and emerging P2X technologies. The expertise in this Network will address challenges and promote innovative solutions across clean fuels and chemical value chains.
