Tour Arrangements: 
The Tour will start at CSIRO Clayton Main Reception and the arrangements will be made by CSIRO staff on the day of the visit, subject to availability
Meeting Room: Ian Wark Theatre (Clayton Central)
Introduction of the detailed tour:
            Short Introduction:
           Presentation: The CSIRO Hydrogen Industry Mission was formally launched in May 2021 and focuses on leveraging CSIRO's hydrogen research capabilities in partnership with  government, industry and the research community.
            Short Introduction:
           The Hydrogen Technology Demonstration Facility includes a refuelling station, hydrogen production and storage facilities to bring researchers, industry partners and businesses together to test and demonstrate emerging hydrogen technologies.
         please note photography is not allowed here due to the commercial nature of the work.  
          Short Introduction:
         At CHES, we work with industry to identify emerging energy conversion, generation and storage technologies, to meet specific end-user power requirements. The collaborative space can be used to share the benefits of emerging hybrid energy systems with Australian industry partners and government bodies.
            Short Introduction:
           CSIRO scientists will build a demonstration unit based on patented technology to efficiently generate hydrogen from liquid carriers. The use of a liquid carrier enables hydrogen to be safely and efficiently stored and transported in tanks from where it is produced – like a remote solar or wind farm – to where the energy is to be used.

Morning Session: Industry Trends and Talent Match

10:00 - 10:20

(20 mins)

 [Track 1] The Need for Green Transition and the Market Opportunities
  • 20min Presentation + Live Interaction

  • In order to reach the goal of reducing emissions, the green energy transition has become an inescapable topic for countries and energy companies. In this context, we will witness the changes in the energy industry, and how should we plan and look forward to the future.

10:20 - 10:40

(40 mins)

[Track 2] Turning the Technical Difficulties of the Energy Transition into Opportunities
  • 20min Presentation + Live Interaction

  • Industry transformation comes with a plethora of technological barriers and breakthroughs, what areas have the hot technology topics right now and what are the interesting possibilities for potential research directions?

10:40 - 11:00

(20 mins)

[Track 3] Supporting the Energy Transition with Great Australian Science
  • 20min Presentation + Live Interaction

  • Abstract: The energy transition is providing opportunities for Australian scientists to shine. Dr Karen Kozielski is the deputy leader of the CSIRO’s Hydrogen Industry Mission, and has led teams of researchers in this exciting space. She will share CSIRO’s approach and some of the ground breaking research happening in hydrogen.
