Discover Hycel at Warrnambool Library

During May our Warrnambool Campus Library will be hosting a display and community discussion about the Hycel Technology Hub. Hycel, currently being established at Deakin in Warrnambool, will be one of Australia’s first facilities for new hydrogen technologies, preparing Australia for the hydrogen economy.   

Event information 

Hycel Campus Conversion overview 

Event organiser Ailiche Goddard-Clegg says ‘no question is too small for the team to answer’, with the purpose of the talk being to increase knowledge of Hycel and hydrogen. They’ll explore why everyone is talking about hydrogen and why hydrogen is slated to be part of Australia’s energy mix in the future. They will also discuss the Warrnambool campus conversion project, presenting preliminary findings of the feasibility study to transition builds to hydrogen heating. 

In addition, the library display showcases some of the exciting hydrogen technology featuring a tabletop electrolyser and a toy car fuelled by hydrogen. You will be able to see water splitting into hydrogen and oxygen right in front of your eyes, and see hydrogen in action as it powers a toy car. Informative posters will also be on display, explaining the pillars and research areas of Hycel. Make sure you take the opportunity to visit and take a look!

The Hycel Technology Hub incorporates a research, testing, assembly, training and community education facility. The location in the southwest signals regional Victoria as a powerhouse of hydrogen development. At a global level, the hydrogen market is predicted to reduce carbon emissions by six billion tonnes annually, employ up to 30 million people and be worth around $US2.5 trillion by 2050. Hycel is positioning Deakin and the region to reap the benefits of the emerging hydrogen economy.
