Aus-China Decarbonisation Roundtable: Hydrogen & Economic Diversification
This is the third in a series of roundtable events on Australia-China links on low-carbon technology transitions, sponsored by the National Foundation for Australia-China Relations.
ACBC QLD and ANU are pleased to present this thought-provoking roundtable that will explore existing and future collaboration between Australia and China on decarbonisation. Attendees will hear from leading industry, government and academic experts whose discussion will focus on Hydrogen in Energy Intensive Industries & Economic Diversification.
Australia and China’s low-carbon transitions are deeply linked through their energy systems and value chains. Low-carbon transitions open opportunities to establish new energy, resource and processing industries in Australia, on the basis of natural resource endowments and industrial capabilities. It is therefore critical for many Australian businesses, governments and other stakeholders to develop a deep understanding of China’s low-carbon transition.
Join the curated panel of experts to discuss existing and potential collaboration between Australia and China on Hydrogen in Energy Intensive Industries & Economic Diversification.
Please note that this event will be live-streamed, however no recording will be available afterwards.
