You can attend in-depth learning workshop sessions in-person only.

Registration and morning coffee for all sessions is at 08:30 and sessions will conclude at 17:00. Lunch, morning and afternoon tea are provided. Choose from:

Workshop A: Strategic overview of hydrogen

Ideal for those with a non-technical background, this workshop aims at giving a broad panorama of hydrogen today. The goal is to provide a comprehensible explanation of the hydrogen landscape, so that business-development-focused, growth-hunting and disruption-enthusiastic participants can make an educated assessment of where their organisation might best fit into the hydrogen economy.

09:00 | UNDERSTANDING HYDROGEN'S EMERGENCE AS A VIABLE ENERGY SOURCE

  • Hydrogen stereotypes – what to think about those?
  • Green, blue, gray… the rainbow hydrogen – what exactly are we talking about?

10:30 | MORNING TEA

11:00 | WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT USAGES OF HYDROGEN, BOTH EXISTING AND EMERGING?

  • How to transport hydrogen?
  • Ammonia and “e-fuels”, where does the conversion stop?

12:30 | LUNCH

13:30 | WHAT DOES THE HYDROGEN VALUE CHAIN LOOK LIKE, GLOBALLY AND IN AUSTRALIA?

  • What makes Australia a serious competitor in the global hydrogen race?
  • What are some key hydrogen projects?

15:00 | AFTERNOON TEA

15.30 | WHAT ROLE DOES THE REGULATION PLAY IN HYDROGEN DEVELOPMENT?

  • Money, money, money… How much does hydrogen cost? What is its value?
  • What’s in it for you?

17:00 | END OF IN-DEPTH WORKSHOP A

Workshop B: Cost modelling: understanding the costs and financial benefits of hydrogen adoption

09:00  | SO YOU THINK YOU KNOW HYDROGEN? 

  • Understanding production trade-offs, major limitations with hydrogen (such as transporting it, locating sizeable plants, etc.) that need to be costed correctly but rarely are appreciated
  • Identifying the benefits – as these are very different by application and end market e.g. oxygen as a by-product, methanation

10:30 | MORNING TEA

11:00 | MARKETS AND END USES THAT ARE ACCESSIBLE FOR RENEWABLE GASES – PROS AND CONS

  • Looking at the markets for renewable gases per se (such as hydrogen and synthetic methane) and discuss how this can be modelled
  • Critically reading published work related to cost benefits of hydrogen and discuss how to normalise this to existing markets

12:30 | LUNCH

13:30 | COMPARING RENEWABLE GASES WITH EXISTING MARKETS THEY SEEK TO DISPLACE

Analysing potential subsidies that may flow into the development of renewable gases

15:00 | AFTERNOON TEA

15.30 | COMMERCIAL ANALYSIS AND DEVELOPMENT ISSUES

  • Commercial modelling of these matters on the understanding that development is a multi-stage process
  • Ensuring your investment is strategic and properly accounts for production variables
  • Should you focus development work on key cost issues that are more related to scale?
  • How can you achieve cost offsets in the modelling? Use of waste energy, use of oxygen, methanation, etc. and price allocation issues across multiple markets
