European Hydrogen Ports Conference

  • Scotland House Rond-Pont Schuman 6 Brussels, 1040 Belgium (map)

This one day conference will look at the current and potential use of hydrogen and fuel cells as a zero emission fuel and energy source for the port and maritime industries. It is being organised by European Policy Solutions with the support of the University of Hull.

The first ferries and ships are close to operational and demonstration projects are now being developed in several EU member states. The conference will begin by looking at the challenges that emissions reduction poses for ports and the maritime industry.  It will look at the policy landscape at both EU and national level then assess the technical challenges faced through the use of hydrogen and fuel cells.  Current case studies will be outlined and the Conference will conclude with a Panel Discussion looking at the way the industry can move from demonstration projects to commercialisation.

Senior speakers have been invited from the European Commission, national governments, ports, maritime and shipping organisations. Speakers who have agreed to speak include Tudor Constantenescu (DG Energy), Magdelena-Andreea Stratinescu-Oltenau (DG Mare), Torsten Klimge (DG Move), Antonis Michail (World Ports Sustainability Program), Carlo Raucci (University Maritime Advisory Services), Roel van de Pas (Nedstack), Mark Kammerer (Hydrogenics), Daniela Laursen (Ballard Power Systems),  Jan Egbertsen (Port of Amsterdam), Gesa Reiss(University of Hull), Roy Campe (Hydroville Project) and Trond Stromgren (Sogn op Fjordane).
