Who We Are

WE ARE H2H ENERGY

With the now widespread recognition that the utilisation of hydrogen as a clean and renewable energy carrier is key to successfully decarbonising various areas of the energy sector, many organisations are looking to implement its use across the energy landscape.  Whilst the technology is available, the industry is in a rapid growth phase and with this rapidly developing market there are a number of new entrants and technologies to assess. H2H has a wealth of knowledge and importantly, practical experience, dealing with the vast majority of suppliers with well-founded relationships already established.  It can be challenging for many businesses and organisations to effectively assess the wide range of suppliers and technologies available.  We are in a unique position to not only effectively scope your project but also design a solution with the “real world” knowledge and experience of available products. We have proven success in integrating various components from multiple suppliers, both locally and internationally sourced. We work through the many complexities that this global sourcing presents, such as customisation to meet local standards and interface issues between vendors. H2H has a wide range and depth of trusted sub-contractor resources with working relationships developed over many years of successful project delivery.

H2H Energy is proudly Australian owned and has been operating since 2009.

Mission Statement

H2H Energy is committed to decarbonising the energy and mobility sectors through promoting and enabling the production, storage and use of hydrogen. We do this by leveraging real-world hydrogen project delivery experience and systems engineering methodology, to shorten and reduce the cost of integrated hydrogen system projects, focussing on excellence in Project Management, Manufacturing, Engineering, Implementation and Sustainment.
