The Australian Hydrogen Conference has now gone fully virtual, taking place over three days (16-17-18 November) and featuring the very latest developments with the emerging hydrogen industry in Australia. Hosted by the Australian Hydrogen Council in partnership with Informa Australia via a live stream and interactive meeting rooms, the event will explore the latest hydrogen energy developments in Australia, along with our international export opportunities.
Australia is set to become a world leader in hydrogen production and exports thanks the release of the National Hydrogen Strategy, which includes a $370 million funding package from the Clean Energy Finance Corporation (CEFC) and Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) to grow an innovative, safe and competitive hydrogen industry in Australia.
This industry conference – which has the full support of the Australian Hydrogen Council – has been perfectly timed to discuss the outcomes of the National Hydrogen Strategy. Join us to listen to key stakeholders from across the private and public sectors discuss the latest developments and initiatives in the hydrogen sector. This event will be THE key meeting place for Australia’s emerging hydrogen industry.
5 reasons why you must attend this national summit on Australia’s hydrogen future:
- Hear from Australia’s leading hydrogen project developers on their latest plans -all under the one roof
- Gain an insight into the investment opportunities that this exciting new industry has to offer
- Take away a comprehensive review on what each of Australia’s States and Territories are doing to advance the hydrogen sector in their jurisdiction
- Meet and connect with the who’s who of the hydrogen supply chain – from government agencies, technology suppliers, commercial developers and many more
- Get on board the ground floor of this exciting new export industry that will see Australia “shipping sunshine” to Asia’s booming markets
In light of the ongoing situation with COVID-19, the Australian Hydrogen Conference will be delivered as a virtual event. Our online platform is fully interactive, sophisticated and will enable you to connect with industry thought leaders from the safety of your home or office. You will still have access to the same great content, hear from leading experts, unique networking and business development opportunities with key decisions makers including the option for arranging meetings and networking at times convenient to you and the ability to directly ask questions and engage virtually.
We also believe that by going virtual the event will greatly facilitate international attendance as there is no need to worry about flights, accommodation, border closures and other restrictions.
By offering a virtual event we hope to help people manage the challenges associated with coming together during travel and physical distancing restrictions in a dynamic and interactive way. We believe everyone should still be able to connect, access great content and ask questions of energy experts and key industry representatives.
Despite the current uncertainty, the hydrogen industry is moving forward at a rapid pace. This event is perfectly timed to bring national and international key stakeholders both in person and virtually to discuss the latest developments and initiatives in the hydrogen sector.
