CSIRO Partners with Canada for Climate Change Action

01 July 2019

The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO) has partnered with the University of British Colombia (UBC) in Canada on a Memorandum of Understanding, in response to the Mission Innovation’s Renewable and Clean Hydrogen Innovation Challenge.

The Mission Innovation is made up of more than twenty-three countries across the world. This is the Mission Innovation’s eighth Innovation Challenge that aims to “accelerate the development of a global hydrogen market by identifying and overcoming key technology barriers to the production, distribution, storage, and use of hydrogen at gigawatt scale." 

CSIRO’s collaboration with UBC will enhance research and industry partnerships with Canada and Australia on clean energy. Hydrogen technologies have the potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and enhance the resilience of the global energy system.

“CSIRO is conducting hydrogen research along the entire value chain, and we look forward to collaborating with UBC to help facilitate demonstrations that will clear the path or market for new technologies,” said Tim Finnigan, CSIRO Energy Director in a press release.
