CQH2 Ecosystem cluster
CQH2 is an organization of Central Queensland based leaders with a mission to create the environment for the region to be a benchmark for renewable hydrogen.
The primary purpose of the Central Queensland Hydrogen Technology Cluster (CQH2) will be facilitating skills development and regional capacity, capability, and innovation to meet and sustain the challenge of developing a new hydrogen industry in Central Queensland (CQ).
A priority will be identifying the skills and qualifications that will be needed to support the emerging industry and align investment in those skills to demand.
CQH2 will act as a broker of technology and innovation information for the local supply chain to ensure that the CQ is well placed to
react to changes in technology form and type as well as keep aligned with recent innovation.
CQH2 will also act as a “concierge” for hydrogen proponents and supply chain support industries looking to establish in CQ by looking to develop new hydrogen business and link local supply chain partners.
It will support demonstration projects through to large scale project proponents and work with them on technology development, acquiring industry expertise through knowledge sharing, scaling hydrogen supply chains and domestic and international collaboration.
