Grants & Funding

In 2021, I was awarded an Australian Research Council Linkage Grant on Sustainable Hydrogen Certification. The grant involves investigating Tasmanian, Australian and international efforts to develop certification schemes for the burgeoning hydrogen industry. Contracts are being finalised and the research will commence in early 2022.

In 2011, I was awarded a Category 1 grant from the Australian Egg Corporation Limited (now Australian Eggs) to undertake research on certification and labelling in the Australian egg industry and subsequently into hen welfare. This project led to a major report comparing egg certification schemes in Australia across the three governance dimensions of politics, institutions and regulations; and to a detailed report on issues involved in adjudicating hen welfare.

In 2004, I was a recipient of an ARC Discovery grant to undertake research on certification and labelling in the forestry and fisheries sectors. The project led to the publication of Global Commodity Governance: State Responses to Sustainable Forestry and Fisheries Certification (Palgrave Macmillan, 2011).

Projects

Sustainable Hydrogen Certification: A Multistakeholder Governance Approach (2021 - 2024)$362,783
Description
The project aims to assist policy analysts to devise a sustainable certification scheme for hydrogen that meetsmultistakeholder requirements. Its significance lies in challenging a techno-economic mindset focusing only on thefuels carbon intensity within a production plant. Taking a comparative historical approach, and incorporating theviews of energy experts and stakeholders, the expected outcome is options for a new sustainable certificationscheme that addresses all technical, economic, social, environmental and governance requirements. The benefitsto Australia are a gold standard sustainable certification scheme that assures the countrys competitiveness inexport markets and influence in global certification negotiations.

Renewable Hydrogen (2019)$9,375
Description
This is a partnership project, which focuses on the legal, societal, political and international governance aspects of developing renewable Hydrogen for large-scale export from Tasmania. Renewable Hydrogen is Hydrogen fuel produced by renewable energy-generated electricity (hydro, solar, wind etc), through the process of electrolysis. It can be exported, and/or used locally for energy storage, or transport fuel. The main objective of this project is to scope out and foster College of Arts Law and Education (CALE) expertise in renewable Hydrogen, to prepare for UTAS involvement in an ANU-led Hydrogen Economy Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) bid in 2020.

Media Messages About Sustainable Seafood: How Do Media Influencers Affect Consumer Attitudes? (2017 - 2019)$85,924
Description
This project will examine media coverage of Australian domestic fisheries sectors to identify: the messages about sustainable seafood prominent in Australian media; the media influencers, strategies, and professional networks underpinning their circulation; and how these messages are understood and interpreted by consumers. This knowledge will be used to inform communication strategies that will ensure clearer sustainability messages, reduce consumer confusion, and improve consumer trust in the Australian seafood industry.

Sense-T Stage 2: Sensing Natural Capital - the role of environmental sensor data within new financial markets (2015 - 2016)$329,000
Description
The role of environmental sensor data within new financial markets. Key objective: to provide a standardised approach to the collection and processing of environmental data, informed by both technical feasibility and awareness of the requirements imposed by new financial markets, which is internationally consistent and fit for purpose. The project will convene a Technical Committee to deliver a new draft environmental data accounting standard, to be published for wider international consultation by the end of 2016.The research will position Tasmania at the forefront of international efforts to develop standards to underpin the rapidly-developing areas of natural capital accounting and new environmental markets, thus enabling Tasmanian businesses to continue to innovate new products and services with international market potential.
