When: Wednesday 31 July 2019, 7:30 pm
Where: Ian Ross building #31, Australian National University, Corner of North Road and Geology Close, Acton ACT 2601. Click here for a campus map (Building #31 at G4 on North Rd) and here for a Google map.
Presentation: Guest Speaker: Ed Gaykema. The ACT is in an uncommon position in that the electricity distribution network and the gas distribution network are both owned and operated by the same organisation (ActewAGL Distribution – AAD). This allows for optimisation of the performance of the complete power distribution network, including transportation power as vehicle fleets shift to new fuels. Ed will show how hydrogen production and storage combined with the existing gas distribution network could provide many benefits. These include;
- Bulk (short and longer term) storage for renewable energy management
- Security of energy supply
- Alternative renewable energy source for gas reliant applications
- Use existing infrastructure to reduce costs
Speaker: Ed Gaykema has worked in the gas industry for the past 37 years commencing in pipeline transmission and more recently in distribution. Ed is passionate about renewables, sustainability and innovation. He is currently project managing Evoenergy’s Hydrogen Testing facility and ActewAGL’s delivery of a pilot hydrogen vehicle refuelling station at Fyshwick
This is a public meeting; please invite anyone who might be interested.
We hope to see you at this really interesting evening.
