Europe faces multiple pressures to decarbonise economies and to address the urgent need to achieve EU energy independence by accelerating the integration of greater renewable energy sources into our energy systems. In order to accelerate the hydrogen revolution, hydrogen should be made an everyday commodity.

Fossil fuels must be replaced with hydrogen for Europe’s energy journey to be widely accepted and deployed.

The session to be held on September 27th will examine how the use of hydrogen can be optimised for it to become an energy commodity and to accelerate the decarbonisation journey for Europe by utilising green hydrogen as a key energy vector.

The interactive session will examine how hydrogen  can be positioned technically and environmentally to become an energy commodity. This session will explore how all stages in the 4 Stage Green H2 Commodification Value Chain can be optimised. 

A number of high-profile figures including Paul McCormack of Belfast Met Northern Ireland, Diana Raine of Smart Hydrogen Consulting Ltd, Marianna Rossi IZES gGmbH and Dr. Rory Monaghan from NUIG will speak during the session. Bart Biebuyck, the Director of the Clean Hydrogen Partnership will introduce the 4 GenComm speakers.

As the EU green energy revolution continues, authorities and agencies need continued information and key data analytics outputs to support and encourage confidence in  their green energy planning. 

 GenComm Programme Manager Paul McCormack spoke about the EU Energy Week saying:

GenComm has been a constant voice in EU Energy week since 2019 and we are delighted to return again to continue our message on generating energy security for communities. 

“For our energy journey to be widely accepted and deployed we must replace fossil fuels with a commodity that brings a seamless change. This session will examine how we can optimise the use of hydrogen for it to become an energy commodity and to accelerate the decarbonisation journey for Europe by using green hydrogen as a key energy vector.”
