13h50 Scaling up with Hydrogen

In order for countries to achieve the goals that are set by the European Commission, collaborations must take place. Cross-chain partnerships are essential for a green future and must meet the future demand for energy. In what form can we create international supply chains and which rules and regulations must change? Let's discuss national policy vs European and the need for future international partnerships. How can governments contribute by preparing for the future hydrogen demand and supply.

With amongst others:

  • Hinrich Thölken, Director for Climate and Energy, German Government
  • Diederick Luijten, Vice President Hydrogen Energy, Air Liquide
  • Matthew Williamson, Vice President Hydrogen, BP

16h15 Innovation: a new way of storing energy

To meet the challenge of energy storage, researchers at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory are testing new thermal energy storage technology that uses inexpensive silica sand as a storage source. What could this mean for businesses that require energy at any given moment? We will discuss the possibilities with Brian Higgins, Director Advanced Technology, Babcock & Wilcox

#

16:30 Potential of green Hydrogen

More and more countries are coming forward with their ambitious 2050 emissions reductions. World leaders have also expressed their vision for a green world economy and that what we are doing now is not sufficient. What is doable, what realistic path can be achieved? We're going to look at a collaboration between international companies that could provide us with a solid business case for the future.
