Conference 2022: Future-proofing Australia’s Energy Exports – 8 & 9 June, Fremantle, Western Australia

The inaugural FEnEx CRC conference will present our ongoing efforts to help future-proof Australia’s energy exports through LNG decarbonisation and hydrogen cost-reduction. Australia is a global leader in the energy landscape with access to vast resources and is ideally positioned to provide the scale and stability needed by our trading partners. Nevertheless, major challenges are faced by both our incumbent world-leading LNG industry and the rapidly evolving hydrogen sector as customers demand cheap energy with low or no carbon footprint. The collaborative partnerships built through the FEnEx CRC are designed to help address these key challenges through innovation, knowledge sharing and technology transfer.

In a two-day event organised around the core themes of the FEnEx CRC, key stakeholders from across the hydrogen and LNG sectors will provide updates on major projects and policies. The objectives, outcomes and achievements of the CRC’s current research programs will also be presented giving attendees an opportunity to learn about the latest emerging technologies and knowledge. Hosted at the Tradewinds Hotel in Fremantle WA, the conference will deliver plenaries, informational and technical sessions and include a workshop to tackle the key issue of fugitive emissions. We look forward to attendees joining us at this first annual conference of the FEnEx CRC.

Registrations for the conference are now open. Please register here.

The preliminary program can be downloaded here. The perfect opportunity to find out about the latest research, ideas, topics and project developments supporting the challenging arena of energy and decarbonisation in the transition to a cleaner world.

Project Poster Sessions
Project posters will be on display over the two days of the conference. Delegates are invited to view the posters and talk to the authors during the breaks.

3MT Competition – Get Involved
The first FEnEx CRC three-minute thesis (3MT) competition will run in conjunction with the FEnEx CRC Annual Conference.

The aim of the competition is for PhD students involved across all aspects of the FEnEx CRC to practice the effective dissemination of their research, and to communicate their ideas and results to the wider FEnEx CRC community, as well as to non-specialist audiences.

Successful submissions may also feature on the FEnEx CRC website, providing an opportunity for PhD students to increase their research profile, and to highlight their work internationally.

Further details are available in the 3MT competition guidelines. The link to register for the competition is here.

Audience participation is encouraged as we vote for the best 3MT – a great prize on offer for the most promising student presentation.

Social Program
On 8 June directly after the conference join us for the opportunity to relax in an informal setting for refreshments, canapes and a touch of Fremantle busking.

Accommodation has been secured at the conference venue, the Tradewinds Hotel.

Conference Location
Fremantle is an eclectic and spirited maritime city with spirit and soul, full of vibrancy, colour and culture.
