**Some of our recently completed projects in Australia focused on green gas & fuels include:
Evaluating opportunities for diesel replacement with hydrogen for a state government - working closely with our client to identify key opportunities for diesel replacement (focus on non-transport uses) and evaluate., at a high-level, the magnitude of diesel replacement (volume of H2, CO2 emissions abated), economics of diesel replacement, business model for hydrogen production and distribution and regulatory barriers for each opportunity.
Biogas feasibility study for an Australian food manufacturer - partnering with our client to explore biogas opportunities from the organic waste collected at their production facilities to reduce their reliance on fossil fuels. A key focus is assessing the economic viability of the potential biogas production and use.
Cost-benefit analysis of economic support mechanisms for developing a hydrogen sector - working with a state government to explore and identify economic mechanisms to support and develop a hydrogen economy. This also includes combining multiple mechanisms to maximise the support provided by the government to hydrogen producers while optimising the cost to the government.
