Case Study: World’s First Coal To Hydrogen Energy At Latrobe Valley

The Hydrogen Energy Supply Chain (HESC) is a world-first project to safely and efficiently produce and ship clean hydrogen from the Latrobe Valley, Victoria to Japan. Case Study with AGL. Construction has begun on liquefaction facilities linked to the HESC project at Port Hastings in Victoria, which will look at the feasibility of turning brown coal from the Latrobe Valley into hydrogen, which would then be liquefied and exported to Japan. The project has the potential to create $2 billion in exports for Australia. Both the Australian and Victorian Governments have committed $50 million each to the $500 million project, which is also supported by the Japanese Government and Japanese industry. Brown coal from Australia key to achieving Japan’s 2030 clean hydrogen energy supply chain target.

12:00 Hydrogen in Microgrid

ATCO: Australia’s First Hydrogen Microgrid Review & Understanding The Safety And Technical Challenges In Implementing Hydrogen In Microgrids

Australia’s gas distribution network will play a key role in the future energy mix, bringing natural gas and new ‘clean’ gas, including hydrogen, to customers playing a central role in reducing energy costs and carbon emissions and an ideal complement to intermittent renewable energy like wind and solar.

To further explore this concept ATCO is developing an industry leading Clean Energy Innovation Hub (CEIH) based at the company’s Jandakot Operations facility in Western Australia. The CEIH incorporates the production, storage and use of hydrogen, as well as the commercial application of clean energy in micro-grid systems.

The CEIH will integrate ‘green’ hydrogen created by water electrolysis – using solar energy to separate hydrogen molecules from water. The hydrogen will be captured and injected into a micro-grid system at the Jandakot facility.

Morning Site Tour A: Woodside and Monash University Low-Carbon Innovation Center Site Tour

Site Tour A

In this site tour, the delegates will visit the Woodside Energy and Monash University state-of-the-art ‘living laboratory’ and long-term research partnership to support Australia’s low-carbon energy transition. As part of Monash’s partnership with Woodside Energy, a new landmark building – Woodside Building for Technology and Design – was created where students and researchers can embrace innovation, design and cutting-edge technology to develop new solutions in sustainable energy technology. The Woodside Building for Technology and Design will be one of the most efficient and innovative teaching buildings of its type in the world, using solar as one of its energy sources. Construction of this landmark building has already begun, with works due to complete in 2020. The five-storey building will continue to drive Monash’s commitment to Education Innovation. Together with Woodside Energy, Monash University will explore new energy possibilities to solve tomorrow’s questions for the good of current and future generations. Housing more than 30 learning spaces, including an interactive tiered collaborative space accommodating 360 people embracing innovation, design and cutting-edge technology.

Afternoon Site Tour B: Hydrogen Fuel Cell Technological Innovations Showcase & Updates At The Center For Hybrid Energy Systems
In this site tour, delegates will have a glimpse of the state-of-the-art facility of the new Centre for Hybrid Energy Systems (CHES) launched by CSIRO in Clayton, Victoria, showcasing the substantial expertise and capability of integrating energy storage, renewable energy, hydrogen, fuel cell technologies, fuel processing, systems design, and construction. CHES is a collaboration hub for researchers and industry in the hybrid energy space. CHES works with industry to identify emerging energy conversion, generation, and storage technologies to meet specific end-user power requirements. This collaborative space is used to share the benefits of emerging hybrid energy systems with Australian industry partners and government bodies to maximize the value of local energy sources. In CHES, CSRIO acts as a trusted advisor for the industry for the safe adoption of new hybrid energy technologies. They can test and certify energy storage batteries, electrolysers for hydrogen generation, and fuel cells to national and international standards. They can also develop hybrid energy systems under renewable energy and end-use load profiles, and showcase CSIRO-developed technologies that may be of interest to industry partners.
