Accelerating global decarbonisation
The 'hydrogen opportunity' is gaining significant attention across the world as a means to accelerate the global transition to a low-emissions energy future. This includes the Australian market, where the hydrogen industry is expected to contribute at least $11 billion to the domestic economy and generate around 7,600 jobs by 2050.
How we can help
We are leaders in new energy projects. Our team has advised clients on first-to-market energy and infrastructure development projects across all technologies – from the beginning of the renewables boom, to pumped hydro, offshore wind, large-scale battery storage and waste-to-energy projects. We are currently bringing this expertise to bear in assisting clients with their investments in new hydrogen and ammonia projects.
Our current roles include work on project structuring (including joint ventures, risk allocation between co-dependent projects and interface management), regulatory approvals, construction and development, finance (including government funding), intellectual property rights and protection, purchasing and export arrangements, storage and transport, industry and competitor collaboration – among other considerations – ensuring we are equipped to support our clients to successfully deliver their hydrogen and ammonia projects.
