Entitled “Green hydrogen technologies supporting the Energy Transition: Matching uses with Context”, this first workshop will take place in a Hybrid format in Cres, Croatia and online on 26 April.
Since the launch of the European Commission’s strategy in 2020 and the mounting pressure to achieve national, European and international climate and energy objectives, governments and energy stakeholders have been increasingly looking at green hydrogen as one of the potential technologies which could accelerate Europe’s Energy Transition. Yet, for many public authorities and organisations at local and regional level, green hydrogen is still something new, and it is not clear how it could be integrated within their Climate and Energy plans.
In the Green Hysland project, partners will not only produce green hydrogen from solar energy on the island of Mallorca, Spain; they will also deliver a roadmap towards 2050 that compiles a long-term vision for the development of a widespread H2 economy in Mallorca and the Balearic Region, in line with the environmental objectives set for 2050.
In this first Green Hysland workshop, we have invited like-minded European projects and partners in order to show participants how green hydrogen can increase the penetration of renewable energy in a specific region, demonstrating sector coupling and sectorial integration, and moving towards full decarbonization of the economy.
As the workshop will take place in a hybrid format on the island of Cres, Croatia and online, you will also hear from a series of Croatian hydrogen experts who have been implementing this technology in different contexts and for different uses – transportation, industry, waste management, fuel cell applications, etc. – in order to give you a complete overview of the possibilities offered by green hydrogen.
