Bringing renewable energy to market at scale


Hydrogen is the most common element on Earth. It is a colourless and odourless gas with the lowest density of all gasses.

Hydrogen has many uses, including fuel for transport or heating or as a raw material in industrial processes.

Today, Hydrogen is primarily produced using fossil fuels, which is connected to significant CO2 emissions.

What is Green Hydrogen?

Hydrogen is produced through a process called electrolysis. This process uses electricity, and when that is created from renewable energy sources with zero emissions, green hydrogen is the result.

Green hydrogen is widely acknowledged as an abundant, clean, versatile and convenient energy carrier and as a result, is now regarded as a key part of the energy transition to net zero, alongside electrification from renewable sources.

Benefits of Green Hydrogen

Green Hydrogen retains its energy far longer than utility-scale batteries.

Green Hydrogen is transportable in gas or liquid form.

Green Hydrogen can be converted into ammonia or blended with natural gas to tailor its composition to the end use.

Green Hydrogen is lighter than battery stacking making it more efficient for use in the heavy vehicle transport such as trucks, buses, trains.

Green Hydrogen is versatile and can be used in many applications to displace molecular or electron-based energy.

What we do

CLARA Energy is building renewable energy at scale.

We will use new and existing technologies to create green resources at a scale that can significantly reduce emissions.

CLARA Energy will change the way we use green energy in Australia.

We are focussing on green hydrogen and the impact it can have on decarbonising hard-to-abate industries, including:

Heavy Haulage Transport

Domestic Gas

Gas Export

About us

CLARA Energy recognises the importance of green hydrogen for our net zero future.

CLARA Energy is a renewable energy development company centred on decarbonising hard-to-abate industries. These industries include heavy haulage transport, domestic gas, gas exports and chemical feedstock.

We will be an active participant in Australia’s efforts to reduce harmful emissions by 43% by 2030 and achieve Net Zero by 2050.

Our commitments to a cleaner world are aligned with the United Nations Sustainability Goals 7 and 13 and comply with the frameworks they outline.
