Webinar: The role of hydrogen in a renewable economy (recordings available)
Wednesday, 26 August 2020, 12:00-15:00 h Central European Summer Time.
As the world is moving towards higher shares of renewable energy and eventually towards 100% renewable energy, mankind is looking into options how to balance variable energy supply from the sun and from wind. Hydrogen, produced from renewable energy, is seen as potentially a key element in 100% renewable energy systems, playing a role in storage as well as industrial applications. Before this background, hydrogen technology can be become an important ally of wind and sun.
Accordingly, the webinar will present the current state of the art – of hydrogen technology including its economics, discuss potential areas of application in the different fields of transportation (road, maritime, aviation), in the storage market and in industrial processes. Also socioeconomic aspects will play an important role. Therefore, the webinar will present how wind power can extend its current role in the power market also to other sectors. Also the trend towards decentralisation will be raised.
