HyER and its member regions are organising a lunchtime workshop on the role of hydrogen energy in the decarbonisation of the energy and transport systems.
It is now widely acknowledged that hydrogen will have a central role to play in a zero-emission transport system. The potential role of hydrogen in a decarbonised energy sector and in the storage of renewable electricity has also been established. This workshop seeks to link the two discussions by demonstrating that hydrogen can help to further decarbonise the energy sector and that the transport sector can help with the further integration of renewables in the energy system.
This event will showcase the leadership of the public sector in the transition to zero emission energy and transport systems. The workshop will focus on concrete examples of policies and projects which have been developed by European cities and regions to encourage a rapid transition to zero emission transport and energy systems. Confirmed speakers include:
– Nigel Holmes – Scottish Hydrogen & Fuel Cells Association: Scotland’s Energy Strategy – the Orkney Islands as example of ‘learning by doing’
– Guillermo Figueruelo, Hydrogen Aragon: Renewable energy for transport in Spain – H2PiyR Project and Spanish National Framework for Alternative Energy in Transport
– Patrick Cnubben, New Energy Coalition: Northern Netherlands as a Hydrogen valley and project examples (HyStock/TSO2020)
The workshop will start at 11am, with coffee available from 10.30am. It will be followed by a light lunch from 1pm onwards.
The event is free to attend and open to all.
