The third webinar was held Feb 18, 2021 03:00 PM CET.
Prospects of Hydrogen - What can we learn from history and the hydrogen veterans?
Hydrogen is experiencing an all-time high interest. Different to the focus on hydrogen cars in the 90ïes, there is now more activity on heavy duty applications, industrial end-use and especially the link to renewable energy and the energy transition. We see an increase in businesses and commercialisation of new products and large-scale projects are being prepared and realized.
We have gathered three internationally renown hydrogen veterans for a "nostalgic evening of reminiscing": Joan Ogden (UC Davies), Ulrich Bünger (LBST) and Steffen Møller-Holst (SINTEF), with together ~100 years' of hydrogen experience. This highly competent panel will share their experience and thoughts on past, present and future of hydrogen.
The second webinar was held February 10th at 14.00 CET.
Webinar series - Large scale green hydrogen production
Green H2 @ Scale
Annual worldwide installed electrolyser capacity is currently in the low hundred MW range. According to the EU’s hydrogen strategy, at least 6 GW of electrolysers will be installed between 2020 and 2024. This number should increase to 40 GW by 2030, and in addition an import supply chain from outside Europe with similar 40 GW of electrolyser capacity shall be established. Some EU members have already released their own strategies, with Spain, Germany and France alone committing to 4, 5 and 6.5 GW of green hydrogen respectively by 2030.
ITM Power and Snam will share their views on this growing demand for electrolysers, from technology supplier to end user perspectives. Relevant aspects to consider include manufacturing technology and capacity, supply chains of materials and components, competence and employment requirements, financials and politics/regulations.
The first webinar was held on December 15th at 10.00 CET.
