Past Event

The French-Australian Chamber of Commerce & Industry was pleased to welcome you to its Energy & Resources Series event dedicated to Hydrogen which took place at the premises of our Corporate member Deloitte.

During this one-of-a-kind event in partnership with CCI France Japon, our guests could hear about the promising energy future between Australia and Japan. The two countries are early leaders in the development of the hydrogen economy. Australia has vast renewable potential for low-carbon hydrogen production and is well-positioned to become a major exporter. Japanese investment in Australia is expected to hit new highs this year as the demand for green energy drives deals. Japan will be one of the first global demand centres, and its private sector is rapidly driving regional market development.

This event brought together French, Australian and Japanese private industry players in the energy and finance sectors to discuss the benefits of these trilateral ties as well as the opportunities for industrials:

In Sydney:

Kam Ho - Managing Director, Total Eren

Simon Currie - CEO, Energy Estate

Matthew Walden- Partner - Energy and Climate Advisory, Deloitte

Elizabeth Boylan - Partner - Energy and Climate Advisory, Deloitte

Live from Tokyo:
