Beyond Zero Emissions Seminar. Hydrogen: Help or Hype

Beyond Zero Emissions Seminar. Hydrogen: Help or Hype

Monday, 2 December 2019 - 6:30pm to 8:00pm

There has been much discussion recently about the potential of hydrogen as a potential game-changer in the energy transition. Australia may be particularly well-placed to take advantage of growing hydrogen demand. We possess abundant renewable energy resources (sun and wind), which could be utilised to produce hydrogen cheaply, and our existing gas infrastructure could be used to deliver hydrogen to domestic and international markets.

Andrew Reddaway will discuss whether the potential of hydrogen is real, or whether it is just hype.

In addition, Andrew will also provide an overview on some of Renew's other energy projects such as high grid voltage and export limiting; electric vehicle modelling and new battery standards.

Registration is not required for this event.

Fritz Loewe Theatre, McCoy Building
