Presenter:
Dr. Patrick Hartley and Mr Tom Campey
Venue:
Engineers Australia, level 31, 600 Bourke Street Melbourne
Synopsis:
Clean hydrogen is a versatile energy carrier and feedstock that can enable deep decarbonisation across the energy and industrial sectors. Australia has the resources and skills to build an economically sustainable domestic and export hydrogen industry which can help meet emissions targets by replacing fossil fuels in transport, mining and power generation, and address concerns around energy security.
