Virtual Summit

Time 10:00-05:10 PM, AEST
Theme: Co-creating the Australian hydrogen energy future

Welcome to Australian Hydrogen Start-up Meet

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you all personally to the Energy Oceania webinar on the Hydrogen Startup Ecosystem.

Startups may be small companies but they can play a significant role in economic growth. They give rise to rapid innovation, revolutionary technologies, and market disruption. They provide the next generation of jobs, create new industries and sometimes transform the way we do business. Facebook, Google, Canva and AfterPay were once startups, which now play a large part in our lifestyles and businesses.

The emerging hydrogen industry presents ripe opportunities as there is a growing global interest in decarbonising energy use and industrial stakeholders such as Shell, Woodside, Apple, Amazon and Origin are looking to play a part. The industry supply chain, including the vertical integrations and end user applications, is still a canvas being developed which presents entrepreneurs, consultants, businesses and investors a chance to make their marks on the industry.

I’d like to thank each of you for attending, as well as the talented speakers, panelists and organisers of this event. We hope sincerely that you find the content informative, engaging and, inspires you to contribute in shaping this exciting, important industry.
