Find out more about the panelists

Hydrogen is a hot topic between Australia and Japan, with many seeing it as an essential part of our journey together towards carbon neutrality. But there are many challenges along the way – not only in making the production of “clean” hydrogen economically viable, but right along the value chain from production, to storage, to transportation and developing the end use sectors that will drive demand at scale. To overcome the challenges, strong cooperation among businesses and governments, and between our countries, will be vital. Hear from the experts about the issues, the efforts, and the prospects for this critical area of activity.

The webinar included an opportunity for Q&A with our panel.
