Topic 2: Hydrogen Gas – could it be the future of green Energy in Australia

Presenter:  Mike Davis from Jemena

The greening of the New South Wales gas network has taken a significant step forward.

Jemena has confirmed the purchase of the state’s first electrolyser which will utilise renewable energy to produce green gas for cooking, heating and hot water in homes and businesses.

The 500kw electrolyser will be located in Western Sydney. The technology will utilise solar and wind power to create carbon-neutral hydrogen gas to be stored in the Jemena Gas Network – the largest in Australia.


Topic 3: Press-Fit: Benefits and Risk Minimization

Presenter: Ali Rad from MM Kembla

Since its release to market, the speed and benefits of Copper Press-Fit over traditional brazed fittings have been increasingly recognized across the plumbing industry, with more and more plumbers adopting this technologies to maintain a competitive advantage. It is estimated that just over half of the Australian market are still using copper brazed fittings.

With some asset owners, developers and government entities raising concerns about the efficiency and accuracy of Press-fit Connection technology in past years and what is being done in response, MM Kembla give us some interesting insights into this space.
