• Hydrogen to replace fossil fuel
    Hydrogen to replace fossil fuel

A presentation on the future of hydrogen ready boilers in Australia will be presented by Hydroheat chief commercial officer, Shane Lewis.

This ARBS session will include a case study on the Deakin University Warrnambool campus hydrogen conversion project.

Lewis has many years experience in hydrogen/Gas systems deployments both in Australia and the European Union.

The timely presentation will be delivered on day three of the ARBS seminar program.

Australia is currently developing its very own hydrogen industry and just last month the CSIRO launched the Hydrogen Knowledge Centre to foster collaboration between industry, government and researchers.

CSIRO CEO, Dr Larry Marshall said Australia is well placed to use hydrogen to create billions of dollars of GDP growth through long-lasting jobs, exports and domestic use, while helping drive down emissions.

“CSIRO began research into hydrogen fuel to help catalyse a new industry in Australia that would fill the economic gap being created by the transition away from fossil fuels. Australia is now realising the potential for hydrogen to reduce its emissions and create new economic wealth, thanks to early investment in research,” Marshall said.

Marshall said the Hydrogen Knowledge Centre will be a central point of critical information for hydrogen R&D in Australia.

Federal Minister for Industry and Science, Ed Husic, said the government estimates the Australian hydrogen production for export and domestic use could generate more than $50 billion in additional GDP by 2050.
