Course 1:
The Hydrogen Economy and Technology
The Hydrogen Society of Australia (HSA) will present a short course on hydrogen as a primary source and nature of energy; the security of supply and equity of hydrogen distribution; the environmental impact of hydrogen supply and utilization.

This short course will only be accessible in person.

Following this short course in the morning the HSA will present an industry workshop in the afternoon where industry leaders will present their projects’ development, technical challenges, and barriers that hinder the Hydrogen Economy advancement. Presentations will be followed by a round table discussion to resolve the technical challenges and overcome regulatory, policy, and financial barriers.

Participants will have the opportunity to hear directly from the Hydrogen Industry leaders and discuss their insights with the subject matter experts and the WREC 2022 conference delegates.

Separate registration (online or in-person) for the afternoon workshop must be made via this link.   

Course 2:
