Dr. Trey Meckel will present  Geothermal Energy: A pragmatic consideration of how to commercialize Australia’s misunderstood resource

Geothermal energy is a readily available, reliable, zero-emissions resource that provides numerous advantages in a balanced energy portfolio, as well as societal and environmental benefits, that can help Australia meet its commitment to net-zero emissions by 2050.

This will be followed by Rosie Johnstone discussing Australian CCUS in 2024 – project status, policy and the future

CCS project maturation in Australia has seen highs and lows since it was first initiated 1999 with the GEODISC study. Changes in government support and market forces have seen periods of greater activity (notably 2008-2011 with state and Federal support for CCS to address coal emissions thorough the CCS Flagships program) through to the doldrums of the 2010’s with the removal of both CCS incentives (carbon tax and meaningful emission reduction schemes)  and wholesale government support through funding.
