THURSDAY 7 March
Hydrogen has the chance to re-shape the energy landscape in Australia. It’s potentially a huge export market, an energy storage solution and a transport fuel.
It’s a competitor to natural gas in many areas, though for the gas industry it’s also potentially a significant growth industry with boundless potential, where the industry has a strong natural advantage.
Gas & Hydrogen 2030 is all about analysing the opportunity Hydrogen creates for the whole gas value chain by analysing the economics, assessing the policies and looking at the current commercial examples and pilot projects.
It’s a must attend for any gas professional looking at long term, blue sky opportunities.
Confirmed speakers include:
Full agenda announced soon!
Why you should attend Hydrogen and Gas 2030
- Understand the state and federal policies, regulations and incentives that could help drive the development of a Hydrogen company
- Hear from the companies already investing millions in the development of Hydrogen based projects
- Examine the commercial opportunities that are available in hydrogen now and what’s just over the horizon
- Analyse how the gas value chain can adopt hydrogen-related projects and innovations that have commercial potential by 2030
- Debate the strategic opportunities and risks from the rise of hydrogen for the gas industry
- Assess the opportunities for existing infrastructure to form the backbone of a Hydrogen based economy
- Debate how to bridge two of Australia's leading sectors, gas and renewables - through hydrogen
Hydrogen & Gas 2030 is taking place the day directly after ADGO 2019. Book a three- or four-day pass to attend both events.
If you would like to just attend Hydrogen & Gas 2030, we also have single-day pass options available.
You can email or call us on +61 (0)2 9977 0565 to discuss your booking.

Hydrogen & Gas 2030 is replacing the policy forum that we’ve traditionally held the day after ADGO.
The content for Hydrogen & Gas 2030 taps into a growing opportunity being explored by Australia’s major research and innovation institutions (such as ARENA, CSIRO, the Chief Scientist) in looking at the potential of a hydrogen industry in Australia.
Hydrogen is different to natural gas in that it’s not a fossil fuel. It can however be produced from fossil fuels and, more sustainably, renewable energy through the electrolysis of water.
Like natural gas, hydrogen can be used for energy generation, transport and a range of other uses in industry such as making fertiliser. Unlike natural gas, it has zero carbon emissions when used. Hydrogen could therefore be a way of decarbonising the economy and helping to substantially reduce Australia’s contribution to climate change. There is also a very real commercial opportunity already underway in Victoria’s Latrobe Valley for example, to export hydrogen to Asian markets such as South Korea and Japan.
Hydrogen could also be a way of solving the issue of integrating a growing proportion of intermittent renewable generation into the energy system. Hydrogen can be a way of storing excess energy that could be used to meet demand when the wind turbines aren’t spinning and the sun isn’t shining – helping to balance out energy supply and demand.
Hydrogen & Gas 2030 will look specifically at where the gas industry fits into this potentially huge new sector. The agenda will discuss how pipeline infrastructure, storage and other traditional gas assets could be adapted to be used in a future hydrogen economy. The agenda will also provide relevant context of hydrogen progress in things such as hydrogen-fuelled cars so that delegates can get a wider picture of everything that is happening to aid their understanding.
Given that hydrogen could compete with natural gas in terms of infrastructure capacity and end-use markets, it could be a huge disrupter. Anyone working in the domestic gas sector (whether producer, pipeline operator or end user) should attend Hydrogen & Gas 2030 to understand the strategic, medium-to-long-term opportunities and risks for their company from the rise of hydrogen.
