10:35 - 11:00 Presentation
  • A deep dive into Denmark's first Power-to-X tender, which distributed approximately €167.7 million in state support for green hydrogen production, as part of Denmark's strategy to achieve 4-6 GW of electrolysis capacity by 2030.
  • A look at the winning projects, discussing their diverse needs and facility sizes, as well as reflecting on why they won, and how similar applicants can maximise their chances of winning funding.
  • Outlining next steps and the post-tender phase, with winners having a four-year timeframe to build and operationalise their facilities, with several projects aiming to be ready for commissioning as early as 2026.

11:00 - 11:45 Networking
11:45 - 12:25 Panel Discussion
  • Addressing the challenges faced by green H2 projects in securing offtake and identifying sectors with highest demand (and willingness to pay)
  • Should you start with the offtaker or the project?
  • Examining latest solutions for securing 100% matched renewable power supply
  • Strategies for dealing with power price risk in green H2 projects. Who is best placed to manage this risk and what can each party bring to the table?
  • Cost effective management of renewable power to improve LCOH

12:25 - 13:05 Panel Discussion
  • Examining the current and upcoming regulations that impact green shipping corridors, and how these policies are shaping collaborations and strategies, with many nations now looking to achieve net zero shipping by 2050.
  • Insight into how ports are adapting their infrastructure for hydrogen and their strategies for dealing with hydrogen as a key component of green shipping. By 2050, up to 42% of the total hydrogen demand in the EU could be located in port areas, necessitating a radical acceleration in deploying hydrogen infrastructure within these ecosystems​
  • How to effectively collaborate between ports, shipping companies, and producers of hydrogen carriers, including LOHCs and ammonia.

13:05 - 13:30 Case Study
Join us for an update on the latest developments from Norway's forefront in sustainable energy transition. We’ll present the Arctic Cluster Team and include the latest news from the Arctic Hydrogen Valley, where several producers of green hydrogen are emerging and industrial use cases have led to strong collaboration and partnerships. See how the cluster activity and network projects like the Arctic Hydrogen Corridor contribute to develop the value chain. Explore groundbreaking achievements in carbon capture, with Norway leading as the first globally to pilot carbon capture from process industries. We’ll include updates on the development of battery industry within the cluster, and you’ll also learn more about unique testing opportunities within the Norwegian Catapult infrastructure and the Sustainable Energy Catapult Center. Join us as we unravel the vibrant landscape of open innovation in Arctic Cluster Team - ACT, where industrial partners, investors, entrepreneurs, educators and the R&D community are co-creating a sustainable and eco-friendly future.

13:30 - 14:30 Networking
14:30 - 15:15 Panel Discussion
  • A exploration of how close a large scale transition from coal to hydrogen actually is, and what more is needed to eliminate the 9% of global emissions steel is responsible for.
  • Discussing the impact of the expected rise in electricity demand for steel production to 1,850 TWh by 2050 and the essential role of green hydrogen in cutting CO2 emissions.
  • Discussing the cost implications of transitioning to hydrogen, with the transition for steelmakers in Europe requiring an estimated $130 billion of investment (before grants).

15:15 - 16:00 Panel Discussion
  • A deep dive into gas distributors concerns about transition from natural gas, and the potential of various gases to replace it. Is green hydrogen the best solution they see, or could alternatives like biomethane make more sense?
  • With analysis showing that just a 5% blending target would require about 50 TWh of hydrogen (a significant share of the 132 TWh EU production targeted by 2030) is blending hydrogen the best use of a limited supply?
  • Weighing up both the costs of production with the cost of infrastructure upgrades vs. alternatives gases, as although we may see hydrogen blending up to 20% in future, it is more expensive and both pipelines and customer appliances may need to be replaced
