Australia is seeking international expertise to assist the nation in its move to a greater use of hydrogen, a key part of its future low-carbon vision.

The international approach will be a co-ordinated partnership between Australian Gas Infrastructure Group (AGIG), Jemena, AusNet Services and Evoenergy.

AGIG chief executive Ben Wilson said on Thursday that the four companies had jointly issued an expression of interest seeking information from the international hydrogen supply chain on the cost of deploying renewable hydrogen at scale.
