Welcome to 2023 IERE-CSIRO Brisbane Hydrogen Workshop

Main Theme: Hydrogen in Clean Energy Transition

The world is seeking for various technological pathways to support the decarbonisation of electricity, transport, and industrial sectors. Hydrogen has emerged as a real opportunity in this context: it can be used as a transport fuel, as a long-term energy storage medium, and as a vector for distribution of renewable energy from those countries with significant resources to those with fewer resources, as well as it can be utilised as a chemical reagent and reductant in various industries. While hydrogen can play a role in supporting electricity grids with greater penetration of variable renewable energy it also offers the opportunity for the electricity sector to be coupled more closely with transport and industry to support significant decarbonisation around the globe.
