This week we launched two new papers on hydrogen and climate change, showcasing the leading work by the urban water industry in Australia and New Zealand and looking to future challenges and opportunities.
Water: fueling the path to a hydrogen future - The role of the urban water industry in Australia and New Zealand's renewable energy future, outlines the key considerations for the urban water industry in participating in the hydrogen economy. The report can be used to guide business cases, engage stakeholders and partners on policy and development issues, assist utilities to evaluate key opportunities, and points to further work that warrants exploration in the years ahead. Watch the launch and hear how urban water lays down the path to a hydrogen future.
Towards resilience: Climate change and the urban water industry in Australia and New Zealand represents the first time the full range of impacts of climate change on water utilities, and the breadth and diversity of their climate change mitigation, adaptation and resilience strategies are together in one place. With the stark message from the IPCC's 6th Assessment Report of a ‘code red for humanity’, the Paper showcases the comprehensive activities our sector has implemented to manage our emissions and adapt to our new reality. Watch the launch including an interview with Cate Lamb, Global Director, Water Security at CDP and United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change COP26 High Level Climate Action Champions Lead - Water.
