Hydrogen is gaining unprecedented momentum around the world as a clean energy solution because it’s safe, flexible and storable.

Hydrogen can be used to power vehicles, generate electricity and produce heat.  As a result, it’s seen as an essential component of future energy systems.

As a collaboration between UNSW and Providence Assets Group, HERC combines research, testing, production and engagement under one roof. Our unique, rapid translation of hydrogen research will accelerate the adoption of hydrogen technologies in industry and communities. HERC is therefore a critical conduit in bringing this sustainable and economical resource to market, enabling the energy transition.

Translation in Action

HERC’s innovative, efficient and cost-effective energy solutions promote the transition of traditional energy to environmentally clean energy.

Our translational research and development solutions focus on four key areas.

Large Scale Hydrogen Power Supply 

Technology across the hydrogen value chain that can be deployed as separate components. This includes hydrogen storage containers for the export market.

Integrated Hydrogen Power Supply 

Technology that contains electrolysers, fuel cells and hydrogen storage solutions in one unit, which can then be deployed to scale.


Technology in action

Consumer Power 

Portable technology for individuals, including hydrogen bicycles, drones, power banks, and devices part of the Internet of Things.

Technology in Action

LAVO™ – a lifestyle and technology brand, built from technology developed by HERC, harnessing renewable energy to drive positive change while giving consumers energy independence.

H2Store – a revolutionary cost efficient hydrogen hydride storage system.

Hydrogen Heat Combustion

Both low heat output technology, such as barbecues, water boilers and home heating, as well as high heat output technology, including industrial heating solutions.
