Hume Hydrogen Highway Announcement

On Friday, the Victorian Government announced a partnership with the NSW Government, investing $10 million each in grant funding to co-deliver the Hume Hydrogen Highway (HHH) program, an Australian-first renewable hydrogen refuelling network that promises to kickstart the high-potential hydrogen-for-transport sector.

Using the Hume Highway between Melbourne and Sydney – Australia’s busiest freight corridor, the project will capitalise on renewable hydrogen’s potential to create long-term jobs, and support the state’s target to halve emissions by 2030 and transition to net-zero emissions by 2050.

The HHH grant program will develop a network which will include at least four refuelling stations along the Hume highway, and will support approximately 25 hydrogen-powered long-haul heavy freight vehicles to adopt zero-emission technology.

The HHH is the first step within a larger collaboration between the Victorian, NSW and Queensland governments to develop an eastern states renewable hydrogen refuelling network by 2026.
