Change is nothing new to the gas industry, it has been changing and evolving for many years and AGA, with its history dating back to 1925, has been an important contributor to those changes and continues to be so today.  For new subscribers to NewsFlash, AGA is a key not-for-profit membership based industry association representing the downstrean sector of the gas industry.  The objectives of AGA are to support and promote the industry and assist it in delivering the highest levels of consumer safety and promote the efficient use of gas.

As part of our efforts to help the various industry sectors keep abreast of industry developments and discuss future challenges and the opportunities that flow therefrom, AGA hosts an Industry Forum annually.

This year, the Forum will explore the exciting opportunities emerging in the hydrogen space from the point of production through to end use and the likely timeframes involved if Australia is to be successful in seizing the opportunities that hydrogen presents.  The Forum will also look at some of the regulatory issues that will need to be addressed as Australia transitions to a net zero carbon society.

Other aspects that will be explored at the forum include updates on topical issues, some of which have been under review for some time and likely to result in significant change for the downstream industry.
