HYDROGEN STRATEGIES AND CO-OPERATION IN THE NORTH SEA REGION –    THE MARITIME DIMENSION

                                                                          Tuesday 11 October 2022

                           CoSLA Conference Centre, Haymarket Yards, Edinburgh  EH12 5BH

This One Day Conference looks at the important role played by Hydrogen Strategies and Action Plans in the North Sea Region.  The European Union and all national governments in the Region, apart from Sweden, have published strategies which have been followed by the publication of action plans and the development of key papers and projects to deliver these strategies.  The Conference begins by looking at the aims and objectives behind the documents, the way that they are implemented, monitored and developed and the vital need for international co-operation to develop a hydrogen economy in the North Sea Region.  It also looks at the effects of the energy crisis on the strategies.

The Conference then outlines the UK Hydrogen Strategy and the way in which the Strategy has developed since the original document was published.  As the Conference is held in Edinburgh, we will also focus on Scottish activities and the development of a Strategy and Action Plan for Scotland including the maritime emphasis in the Plan.  The event will also look at the important role that logistics and the maritime sector will play in the German Hydrogen Strategy.

International co-operation plays an important role in national strategies as there is a need to collaborate across the North Sea in research, innovation and in the creation of a North Sea hydrogen economy.  We will look at the importance of the Declarations such as the Esbjerg Declaration and the Clean Hydrogen Partnership’s Study on Hydrogen In Ports and Coastal Areas which includes the EU 27, UK and Norway.  There are also other significant agreements which will be discussed such as the agreements between Scotland, Germany and Hamburg.

The afternoon session will look at hydrogen maritime strategies and the progress of the UK Clean Maritime Plan by presenting some of the hydrogen projects that have been funded under the Plan.  The Conference concludes with a discussion about future co-operation across the North Sea Region with a panel of experts.
