3:10 PM How Western Australia Has the Opportunity to be a World Leader in Renewable Energy: Perspectives from The Chief Scientist of WA

Western Australia is proving itself to have endless potential in the energy space. From an investment perspective the opportunities offered by hydrogen may soon replace the LNG export potential. In this session Peter, the Chief Scientist of WA, will share his expertise on the impacts that phasing out fossil fuels and moving towards renewable energy will have on state and country.

  • Implications of phasing out the natural gas and coal base load
  • Exploring alternatives: Renewable energy resources and possible use cases – desalination, hydrogen exports, storage, remote areas & mining
  • A state rich in elements : WA’s commercial and environmental potential in the battery storage space
  • Onslow’s Microgrid using 50% renewables
