Dr Linda Davis
The complete decarbonisation of various industrial sectors like buildings, power or transport may be difficult purely by means of electrification. One of the major advantages of hydrogen is that it is a versatile all-rounder for a host of applications. Renewable electricity can be used to produce hydrogen, which can in turn provide energy. Moreover, hydrogen produced through an electrolyser from renewable electricity could facilitate the integration of high levels of variable renewable energy into the energy system, offering a flexible load and providing grid balancing services. Hydrogen could therefore be the missing link in the energy transition. As Key hydrogen technologies are maturing (fuel cell vehicles, syngas etc.), hydrogen from renewables can help tackle various critical energy challenges. It could particularly offer ways to decarbonise a range of sectors where it is proving difficult to meaningfully reduce CO2 emissions. All these aspects require the implementation of a forward-looking legal, political and technical regulatory framework. The sessions shall provide an overview on challenges and opportunities for a large-scale appliance of hydrogen technologies.
