REALISING THE MARITIME HYDROGEN POTENTIAL OF THE NORTH SEA REGION
Scotland Europa Conference Centre, 8th Floor, Rond-Point Schuman 6,
Tuesday 22 November 2022
Organised by the North Sea Hydrogen Ports and Maritime Community (NS HyMaP) with the support of CMB.TECH and Nedstack.
Since the Second North Sea Hydrogen Ports and Maritime Conference in February 2020, the role of hydrogen in energy transition has been more and more crucial and there has been much activity in the North Sea Region. The EU published its Hydrogen Strategy in July 2020 and national hydrogen strategies were agreed in Germany, the Netherlands and Norway. The UK Hydrogen Strategy was published in August 2021 and Denmark’s Power-to-X strategy in March 2022 The EU has published a series of documents that will develop its Hydrogen Strategy and integrate hydrogen into broader EU energy policy.
This strategic activity has been matched by the development of major projects in the Region. In its webinar series, NS HyMaP looked at the role of large green hydrogen projects in the North Sea Region and highlighted the AquaVentus and NortH2 projects. We have also looked at the key role of ports in the development of a North Sea hydrogen economy and, with the Scottish Hydrogen Fuel Cell Association (SHFCA), we held the Hydrogen Bridges Across the North Sea webinar in September 2021.
The third North Sea Hydrogen Ports and Maritime Conference builds on this activity and looks at a number of policy initiatives that will emphasise the key role that the ports and maritime sector must play in the creation of a hydrogen economy. Firstly, we look at the advantages that ports have in developing regional hydrogen economies as hydrogen valleys and the steps that ports are taking to create these valleys.
The development of hydrogen vessels for work in ports and short sea shipping will also be a key challenge in the coming years and we look at a range of issues including system design, onboard storage and safety.
Bunkering will also be a critical issue for the creation of a short sea shipping network in the North Sea Region and this will be discussed at the Conference in a session looking at the transport of hydrogen. Hydrogen transportation will be a key issue as some areas of the North Sea will be exporters of hydrogen while other areas will be net importers.
The European Commission and Institutions have played a crucial role in stressing the importance of hydrogen and we will have key speakers from the Commission outlining recent policy initiatives to promote hydrogen and renewable energy while addressing the energy crisis.
