European Policy Solutions is pleased to announce that CMB Technologies will be sponsoring the Target Zero Conference  alongside the Dutch fuel cell manufacturer Nedstack.   The Target Zero Conference is the Second North Sea Hydrogen Ports and Maritime Conference and will be held  in Brussels on 11 February 2020.   Paul Turner from CMB Technologies will be speaking at the Conference and will cover the importance of incremental innovation within the maritime sector.

The European Commission will be strongly represented at the Conference.  The Opening Address  will be given by Tudor Constantinescu, the Principal Advisor in DG Energy.  Tudor will be looking at  the role of Energy in the European Commission’s Green Deal and the key role that it will play in the Ports and Maritime Sector.

Tudor will be followed by Robert Missen, Head of the Research and Innovation Unit in DG Move. He will  look at policy developments in DG Move as they relate to the hydrogen, ports and maritime sectors.  In addition, DG Research will play a key role in the development of a research programme for the maritime sector and they have recently set up a Waterborne Unit.  Peter Crawley from the Unit will be discussing DG Research’s support for the development of hydrogen applications in the sector.

Bart Biebuyck , the Executive Director of the Hydrogen Fuel Cell Joint Undertaking (FCH-JU)  will look at the support given to hydrogen applications for the maritime sector by the FCH-JU and the projects that are being funded.   Bart will also outline the significant opportunities in waterborne transport in the current FCH-JU Call for projects.  The  current Call opened on 14 January 2020 and will close on 21 April 2020.

The North Sea INTERREG Programme has fostered maritime co-operation for may years and has recently funded a Zero Emission Ports project.   This project joins a number of North Sea ports and maritime projects which have an important hydrogen dimension.   Albin Hunia, the Contact Point for the North Sea INTERREG in the Netherlands, will review the current programme and discuss opportunities in the new Programme which will operate from 2021.

There are still places left at the Conference.  Further details and Booking Forms can be found by following the seminars link on the European Policy Solutions website
