Polling – What is ‘clean hydrogen’?
The Australia Institute surveyed a nationally representative sample of 1,007 Australians about their understanding of the term ‘clean hydrogen’.
The government defines ‘clean hydrogen’ as “hydrogen produced using renewable energy or using fossil fuels with substantial carbon capture and storage.”
To test Australian’s understanding of the term, the survey asked, “what do you think the term ‘clean hydrogen’ refers to?”
The results show that only one in five (22%) Australians understand the term ‘clean hydrogen’ in the same way as the government.
