Sumitomo Australia Pty Ltd , 100% subsidiary of Sumitomo Corporation, together with Gladstone Ports Corporation (GPC), Gladstone Regional Council (GRC), Australian Gas Networks (AGN) as part of the Australian Gas Infrastructure Group (AGIG) and CQUniversity Australia (CQU) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to develop a hydrogen ecosystem in Gladstone.

The Australian Government announced their National Hydrogen Strategy in 2019, and is presently working to create a national hydrogen industry in support of this strategy, setting its vision to become a leading hydrogen nation in the world by 2030. The City of Gladstone, in the State of Queensland, is expected to be one of the best locations for hydrogen production and consumption from its existing industrial infrastructure, having potential to decarbonize existing sectors such as industry, mobility, ports etc followed by strong support from the Policy Makers.

Sumitomo aims to materialize a hydrogen ecosystem in conducting a Feasibility study covering the entire hydrogen supply chain and determining the best configuration for hydrogen production and demand creation including decarbonization of the local gas infrastructure, mobility and any other related application in this Gladstone region.

Sumitomo Corporation will establish a new business organization entitled the Energy Innovation Initiative (EII *1) in April 2021 which will carry this Gladstone project. Sumitomo Corporation expects hydrogen to be one of the key energies of the future, and promotes hydrogen related business such as Local Production and Consumption projects and Large Scale Value Chain projects. The focus is to develop the regional requirements of energy whilst celebrating the unique characteristics of hydrogen.

In order to greatly contribute to the achievement of our long-term goals toward climate change mitigation, "Carbon neutralisation in 2050" and "Realisation of a sustainable energy cycle", we will accelerate our efforts for the materialisation of a hydrogen society by promoting hydrogen related businesses.
