Hydrogen Society of Australia presents

Developing Hydrogen Projects under Current Australian Law


Overview of Australia’s Hydrogen Legal regime. Influence of the current legal regulatory models on future regulation of hydrogen projects.

About this event

The global shift towards clean energy has driven State and Federal Government efforts to develop the hydrogen industry in Australia. With the Australian regulatory framework for developing hydrogen projects still in its relative infancy, this webinar provides on overview of the current status of the Australian hydrogen legal regime and the latest developments within this space. The webinar will also examine how legal regulatory models developed by other countries and well-established Australian energy industry regimes may influence future regulation of hydrogen project development.

In addition the webinar will look to addresses the legal challenges the hydrogen industry will need to navigate in order to advance projects and realise Australia’s hydrogen resource potential. Particularly, focus will be on the legal risks associated with:

  • securing project financing;
  • State and Federal Government fiscal regimes;
  • compliance with competition and foreign investment regulations and policies; and
  • infrastructure access and construction.
