Positioning Hydrogen 2023 Conference, Australia: An international green hydrogen event.

The 3rd Global Hydrogen Energy Conference and Exhibition, scheduled for November 27-29, 2023 in the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre, Melbourne, Australia, is a must-attend hydrogen technology event and exhibition in 2023. The conference will bring together participants from the entire hydrogen value chain with the goal of exhibiting solutions and innovations for low-carbon hydrogen production, efficient storage and distribution, safety and emergency services, and applications in a wide range of industries. Industrial experts and decision makers from around the world will talk about and show off the latest technologies, engineering solutions, and future trends.

As the world's largest economies benefit from implementing hydrogen strategies, global markets are capitalising on hydrogen's momentum to decide where to invest in hydrogen projects. The enthusiasm encompassing hydrogen is being tapped by global market and industry leaders to influence policy, discourse, and the energy landscape.

Hydrogen is predicted to generate $700 billion in investment by 2030 in order to meet global requirements. The investment roadmap, on the other hand, remains foggy. Uncertain policies and frameworks, the supply-and-demand dilemma, financing ambiguity, and a lack of infrastructure all impede the growth of the global clean hydrogen economy.

The only way to address these issues is through open collaboration and knowledge exchange. The Positioning Hydrogen 2023 conference and exhibition brings together global leaders from the public and private sectors, ranging from energy producers and off-takers to financiers, technology providers, and policymakers, all with one goal in mind: to transition hydrogen from pilot to full-scale bankable projects.

Energy Oceania 2023 will be held concurrently and will embrace high-level plenary presentations, specialised workshops, trainings, concurrent guest lecture sessions, debate panels, and poster presentations. The event will cover all elements of energy research, from the basics of physics to the engineering of energy production, storage, and transport, as well as economics, regulations, and safety as they pertain to a future hydrogen economy.

What to Expect from Positioning Hydrogen 2023

Principles of the “COAG” for growing industries

  • Collaboration: Entails matching national and international legislation while taking into account the broader regulatory ecosystem. Governments should share their resources in order to establish standard frameworks.
  • Strategic objectives: Adopting a systems-level approach to regulation, with an emphasis on results and performance, governments should ensure that regulations are consistent with planned goals.
  • Flexibility: Recognizing that regulatory frameworks may need to be adjusted on a regular basis as the industry evolves. Governments should take an adaptive, iterative approach, employing standards, codes of conduct, and other tools to allow for flexibility.
  • Innovation: Promoting creativity and testing new ideas through formats such as regulatory sandboxes and accelerators. Governments should be open to novel approaches to frameworks that are suited for a developing industry.

Themes Defining our Green Hydrogen Event

  • The global hydrogen potential and leadership: With the plunging cost of renewables, the potential for green hydrogen is enormous. To establish a hydrogen economy, representatives in policy, investment, energy, and industry must work together to take advantage of the opportunity and incorporate the global energy environment.
  • Net zero-emission objectives: Due to the constraints of electrification, sky rocketing oil price, is it the hydrogen is the future fuel? What are the objectives to achieve the hydrogen demand and what off-takers methods or subsidy assistance are required to boost demand? Hear from industrial off takers in metallurgy, manufacturing, industrial applications, shipping, aerospace, and automobiles about their approach to the hydrogen economy and how it fits into their massive net zero objectives.
  • Projects and production: Like any other product, green and low-carbon hydrogen are priced competitively. Although worldwide electrolyzer capacity benchmarks have been established, how will companies ramp up production to achieve these targets and support net-zero goals? Meet the leading innovators and leaders of gigantic initiatives aiming for $2 or less hydrogen and learn from them.
  • Infrastructure: Massive capital investments are required for hydrogen storage and mass transportation over land and sea. Gas pipeline leads have demonstrated that hydrogen blending with natural gas is fully viable, while hubs, port facilities, and clusters have cropped up around the world to highlight the benefits of hydrogen being consumed near where it is produced. Learn about the foremost obstacles to establishing hydrogen-ready infrastructure and how to tackle them.
  • Funding for the hydrogen economy: The Energy transitions commission estimated that between now and 2050, $15 trillion would be needed to support hydrogen economy. Despite the current buzz surrounding green and blue hydrogen, only a few project financing deals have been completed. Learn how the hydrogen economy can take advantage of the current wave of green financing, as well as the off-take agreement models that will make projects marketable.
  • Hydrogen Industry skill development: Skills training is the time invest in cultivating one's ability and staying future-ready, any capabilities pursued as a passion, and the capacity to complete a mission with a higher rate of success at the right time. The current hydrogen industry requires skill enhancement.
  • Safety, risk and emergency management: The hydrogen industry is going through an era of transition as technologies across the value chain. The societal perceptions start changing, and risks are constantly evolving in the hydrogen industry. So that community should prepare for hydrogen hazards by learning about its dangers and adjusting the risk and emergency management framework.
  • Innovations in Storage and Transportation: Hydrogen storage and transportation are pivotal challenges in harnessing this versatile energy carrier. Innovations in efficient storage methods, such as solid-state materials and underground caverns, alongside advanced transportation technologies, like pipelines and fuel cell vehicles, are crucial for unlocking hydrogen's potential as a clean and sustainable energy source.
