European Hydrogen Ports Conference; Commission Speakers

Written on the 21st September, 2018

A number of European Commission speakers have agreed to speak at the European Hydrogen Ports Conference which will be held in Brussels on Thursday 8 November with the support of the University of Hull and Nedstack.

Magdalena-Andreea Strachinescu-Olteanu will speak in the Opening Session and will outline the position of DG Maritime Affairs and Fisheries in terms of emission reductions and the use of zero emission fuels. Magdelena-Andreea is the Head of Unit for Marine Innovation, Marine Knowledge and investment in DG Mare.

Tudor Constantinescu is Principal Advisor to the Director General of DG Energy and will speak in the Policy Dimension. He will address the issues surrounding green hydrogen production, distribution and storage. These are key issues if hydrogen is to be used more widely in the generation of larger electrolysers. The issue of energy storage both in ports and onboard ships is another key issue.

Torsten Klimke is the Deputy Head of the Research and Innovation Unit in DG Mobility and Transport.  He will look at the innovation needed to move closer to commercialisation from the current demonstration projects in the ports and maritime sector.   Torsten has a background in maritime policy having been responsible for the EU rules on reducing sulphur in shipping fuel.
