Ammonia policy in Australia

Concrete steps are being taken on ammonia and ammonia-related policy in Australia. In late 2021, the New South Wales state government launched its Hydrogen Strategy, adding to the list of state-based strategies announced around the country. There is also a high level of industry interest within NSW to develop significant hydrogen (and ammonia) hubs, and renewable energy generation. Federally, all eyes are on the Clean Energy Regulator as they develop the Guarantee of Origin certification scheme, which is soon to begin looking at low and zero-carbon ammonia production. To explore how these policy pieces are coming together, we welcome Matt Baumgurtel (Hamilton Locke), Michael Probert (NSW OECC), Cameron Mathie (CER), Dane Halstead (FFI) and panel chair Andrea Valentini (Argus Media). We also welcome Argus Media as Ruby Sponsors of this year’s conference. Join us in-person or online at 9AM on Thursday 25 August to learn more.

Building the EU end of the Australia-Europe supply chain

At this year’s Australia conference, we recognise that interest in Australian ammonia is on the rise. At previous conferences we’ve witnessed the strengthening of ties between Australia, Japan and South Korea, and this year we see a new player emerge. The EU’s growing ambitions have catapulted it into the ammonia conversation, and the nascent of an Australia-Europe ammonia supply chain is quickly developing. To give our audience the EU-perspective, we welcome a terrific virtual panel beaming in live from the Netherlands, Germany and Italy: Jill Thesen (Federation of German Industries), Martijn Coopman (Port of Rotterdam), Anna Fedeles (Austrade) and Anna Freeman (Clean Energy Council). Join us in-person or online, and make sure to register by the end of this week (Friday 29 July) to secure the early-bird rate.

Introducing our Australia conference, meet our first panel

This year marks the fourth edition of our annual Australia conference, and we begin our event with a challenging topic - for good reason. As momentum grows, so do the stakes. The opportunity for hydrogen & ammonia in Australia is unparalleled, but establishing a world-leading industry requires many, many pieces to come together. To explore the challenges immediately ahead, we’ve brought together three familiar faces with a wealth of experience: Paul Hodgson (Scaling Green Hydrogen CRC), Alana Barlow (Sumitomo Australia) and Laurentiu Zamfirescu (Principal Safety and Risk Engineer, AMOG Consulting). Join us in-person or online, and make sure to register by the end of this week (Friday 29 July) to secure the early-bird rate.
