The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO), Australia’s Science Agency, has been conducting research on natural hydrogen for several years independently, in collaboration with international researchers and industry partners. Australia is currently experiencing an emergence of exploration activities focussed on natural hydrogen supported by state and federal agencies and an increasing number of industry players. The trend is becoming global with high demand for low-cost, low carbon emitting and renewable energy sources.

CSIRO is hosting a symposium in Perth, Western Australia from November 29th to December 1st, 2023, that will bring together a selected group of international and Australian experts from academia, industry, and government agencies to discuss our state of knowledge and knowledge gaps on natural hydrogen in the subsurface, as well as surface expression and atmospheric emanations.
