UNDERSTANDING THE CHALLENGES TO DEVELOPING THE INFRASTRUCTURE NEEDED TO TRANSPORT GREEN HYDROGEN

Producing Green Hydrogen cost effectively is just one piece of the puzzle. Another challenge is then transporting that hydrogen – whether that is globally from areas of high volume, low-cost hydrogen production to other nations, or just from localised projects to offtakers. This session will examine the challenges of developing medium to long term transportation options for the Hydrogen market.

• Understanding the technical challenges of converting old gas grid to hydrogen, including pipe embrittlement and safety concerns
• Understanding the costs of developing new infrastructure and how these can offset
• Is a pan European hydrogen pipeline a possibility? And do member states work together to make it a reality?
• Whether converting to other gases such as ammonia or methane pre transportation is a better long-term strategy, weighing up efficiency losses vs infrastructure conversion costs
