100% renewable targets will require power storage to manage flows on the net
Electrolysers utilise these intermittent power flows to produce H2 gas from water
H2 gas can be stored in large quantities underground and transported via existing gas pipelines
H2 vehicles recharge faster and are more durable than battery powered transport
Growing H2 demand in industrial processes will reduce costs and increase supply
When: 24 May, 2012   Where: Thessaloniki, Greece

The International Conference “Hydrogen Energy for Life” on renewable hydrogen production will be held in Thessaloniki (Greece) on 24 May, 2012. This event is funded by the  LIFE+ BIOFUELS-2G project (www. biofuels2g.gr).
A key component of the BIOFUELS2G project is the implementation of a hydrolytic solar hydrogen production unit, which was designed and constructed by CERTH to demonstrate the potential of employing renewable hydrogen to increase the sustainability of 2nd generation biofuel production. Driven by this incentive, the H2Life conference aims to:

  • Highlight promising R&D activities in the fields of renewable hydrogen production
  • Outline recent demonstration projects highlighting hydrogen production
  •  Promote networking between academic and industrial stakeholders Initiate PrivatePublic Partnerships (PPPs).

 

The tentative agenda includes:

  •  LIFE program Open Day presentation
  •  Biofuels2G Project presentation
  • R&D – Demo Projects presentations on the hydrogen economy and production
  • During the event a tour of the hydrogen production site will be held with a live
  • demonstration of the Biofuels2G production process.

This event is employed as 20th year anniversary event of LIFE program.
