With increasing amounts of green hydrogen projects being announced this session will address one of the biggest bottlenecks to deployment; securing renewable power sources and grid capacity. With less of both than will be required to support all planned projects we will cover:
Portugal was among the first countries in the world to set carbon neutrality targets for 2050.
The country has the ingredients (as well as interesting challenges ahead) to become a major European exporting producer of renewable fuels, not only to meet its own needs but also to export to the rest of Europe, through maritime corridors being currently created, and through existing and future land infrastructure.
Several important production projects are already in development and many more are to come.
The invasion of Ukraine has impacted the entire energy sector, but in the context of Green Hydrogen it has implications for one of its critical challenges to success; achieving green H2 at competitive prices to non-renewable H2.
Of the many industries touted to be potential buyers of green hydrogen, steel is the most prominent, with the potential for a 95% reduction in emissions. In this session leading steel producers will highlight:
The demand for fertilisers is expected to grow by 40% until 2050 in order to feed a growing population. Responsible for nearly 2% of global emissions, conversion to production with green hydrogen and its derivative ammonia have the opportunity to significantly reduce emissions. This session will be a deep dive into an operational project, producing fertiliser from ammonia, and the business models that make it possible.
Over 1 GW of new hydrogen projects have been announced since April in Portugal. With the pipeline building we will examine the barriers to success, and the future opportunities for green hydrogen.
In this panel we will examine the hurdles to decarbonise heavy transport, and the practical applications for fuel cells.
With two Important Project of Common European Interest (IPCEI Hy2Tech and Hy2Use) in the hydrogen value chain the European Commission supports research and innovation, the first industrial application, and the construction of related infrastructure in the hydrogen value chain. This session will highlight three green hydrogen case studies from a successful applicant, outlining the funding process, the timelines, the permitting and all the aspects related to the project development up to construction.
Sustainable biomethane could fulfil 40-60% of Europe’s gas demand in 2050 and provides a sensible pathway to a circular economy. So how do we get there?
With demand for green hydrogen expected to grow exponentially in northwest Europe, facilitating the import of green hydrogen from countries all over the world is gaining momentum.
Recognised as a leading international hub for trade in energy products for decades, the port of Amsterdam is uniquely positioned to import, store, release and distribute different modalities carrying green hydrogen. The H2A consortium is dedicated to get the green hydrogen supply chain up and running by importing one million tonnes of 100% green hydrogen to and through the port of Amsterdam annually by 2030.
Nel's vision and scale up ambitions for the upcoming and expanding green hydrogen market.
With the growth in automated electrolyser production capacity Nel is strengthening its position for industrial and large scale applications, which is crucial for the green energy transition in Europe and clients willing to secure hydrogen projects on time, and to sustain successfully the upcoming ramp up of new green hydrogen electrolyser projects in Portugal and rest of Europe.
In this session gas operators will provide a behind the scenes look at:
