hunter new energy symposium

NewH2 – the Hunter Hydrogen Technology Cluster, alongside HunterNet, was excited to host the Hunter New Energy Symposium in Newcastle on 21-22 February 2024.

The inaugural event was a sell out in 2023 and the 2024 Symposium was moved to a larger venue to allow for more attendees, facilitate a range of ‘break out’ sessions in the agenda, and accommodate an exhibition component.

Thank you to everyone who took part in HNES2024!
