Sam Bruce is a Manager in the ‘CSIRO Futures’ group, the strategic advisory arm of Australia’s national science agency. In this role, Sam sits at the interface between research and industry, where he leverages the deep expertise of CSIRO’s research professionals to help Australia’s largest...

CSIRO recently led the development of a National Hydrogen Roadmap. The purpose of the study was to set out a strategy for turning the emerging technologies that underpin a hydrogen economy into bankable assets, as a foundation for building an economically sustainable industry in Australia. The project considers the full scope of potential applications for hydrogen including electricity/energy storage, heat, transport and industrial uses. It then assesses the commercial models, regulatory frameworks and RD&D investment priorities that will allow hydrogen utilisation to become competitive in local and global markets. The roadmap is designed to help inform public and private sector investment so that the industry can scale up in a coordinated manner.

Sam Bruce from the CSIRO Futures Group will talk through the approach and key findings, focussing primarily on the opportunities and implications for the broader energy sector.
