Open invitation for webinar: Electrons and Molecules – how to make it a love affair?

Setting the right incentives to foster the cooperation between hydrogen and electricity

Many European Member States and the European Commission are in the middle of defining their hydrogen policies. Hopes are high that this new energy carrier will play an important role in reaching the European greenhouse gas reduction targets. The  production of hydrogen from renewable electricity will inevitably have effects on the electricity system.

Therefore we are happy to invite you to a webinar to discuss the best strategies.  

Speakers at the webinar:

  • Ben Voorhorst, Chief Operating Officer, TenneT,
  • Gijs Postma, Dutch Ministry for Economic Affairs,
  • Ulrich Benterbusch, German Ministry for Economic Affairs 
  • Yolande Verbeek, Uniper, 
  • Peter Hoffmann, Energy System Planning, TenneT

Electrolyzers to produce green hydrogen from renewable sources are significant electrical load. The capacities foreseen by the Dutch and the German hydrogen strategies for 2030 equal seven times the peak load if the city Munich. It will be decisive to set the right locational and operational incentives to ensure that the hydrogen economy supports the electrical grid or even additional CO2-emissions. In this webinar we will discuss which factors should be taken into account and which locational and operational incentives need to be in place to make the phase-in of hydrogen a comprehensive success.

You can register here through e-mailing.

We will send you the dial-in data.
