Australia’s Chief Scientist Dr. Alan Finkel, Energy and Emissions Minister Angus Taylor and Director of the National Hydrogen Strategy team James Hetherington are just three of the speakers set to present at the Australian Hydrogen Conference later this month.
With just under two weeks to go, the four-day conference will take place virtually in light of the ongoing situation with Covid-19.
Hosted by the Australian Hydrogen Council in partnership with Informa Australia, it will feature the latest developments with the emerging hydrogen industry in Australia, along with international export opportunities, via a live stream and interactive meeting rooms.
Australia is set to become a world leader in hydrogen production and exports thanks the release of its National Hydrogen Strategy, which includes a $370m 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.
“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,” event organisers said in a statement.
“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.”
The Australian Hydrogen Council will be held on 16th to 19th November.
