Current practice around, and challenges facing, energy provision in Australia’s Northern Territory (NT) remote communities are discussed: hydrogen energy is introduced as a solution to alleviate the challenges therein. Options for hydrogen supply in NT remote areas are economically evaluated and their feasibility is discussed. While current capital expenditure limits pose the main barrier to hydrogen supply in remote areas of the NT, it was found promising in terms of environmental effects, long-term economic return, reliability of energy supply, and community empowerment.
