A gathering of great minds, exploring how to ‘do things better’

The HSA Story

Our Dream

Hydrogen Systems Australia was born at a time when our world was forced to pause, hunker down and begin the process of navigating a global pandemic in early 2020. HSA founders with extensive experience in the Hydrogen sector, manufacturing, systems integration, government initiatives and much more, gathered and explored how we could “do things better”.

We identified an opportunity in the small to mid-scale market where the focus was all about creating power (and fuel) onsite, to be used onsite.

We created a business model based on our ultimate goal to achieve Energy Security.
