Hysata welcomes top UN climate official to Port...


Wollongong, Australia, 27 February 2024: Australian electrolyser company Hysata was delighted to host Executive Secretary for the United Nations Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) Simon Stiell last Friday in Port Kembla.

Mr Stiell was joined by Minister for Climate Change and Energy the Hon Chris Bowen MP and Member for Cunningham Alison Byrnes MP for a tour of Hysata’s electrolyser manufacturing facility during his first official visit to Australia.

Hysata CEO Paul Barrett said it was an honour to welcome Simon Stiell and Minister Bowen to Hysata’s electrolyser manufacturing facility to discuss climate leadership and showcase Australian ingenuity:

“It was a huge honour for Hysata to welcome Mr Stiell, the United Nations’ leading authority on climate change to showcase our high efficiency electrolyser and manufacturing capability.     

“Mr Stiell had some incredibly insightful comments about the urgency of global climate action, and the importance of government, industry and academia working together to solve challenges.

“He’s an engineer by background and really knows and understands manufacturing well. He was excited by not only Hysata’s energy efficiency but our ability to mass manufacture our product.   

“Mr Stiell recognises that green hydrogen has a vital role to play in the deep decarbonisation of the hard-to-abate sectors such as chemical and steel manufacturing, high-grade industrial heat and heavy transportation.

“Minister Bowen also shared some great inspirational remarks to the team and is very supportive of our journey which includes progression of our first commercial demonstration project with Stanwell supported by the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA).

“We are incredibly humbled the Minister chose Hysata as an example of Australian ingenuity for Mr Stiell’s first official visit to Australia, and being able to showcase the potential of the Illawarra region in the transition to net zero.”
