Hydrogen Webinar: The Netherlands as an international hydrogen hub

09 Dec 2019

What collaborations and hydrogen projects are there? Do we work together internationally? What is the position of the Netherlands with regard to hydrogen compared to other countries?

Take part in this webinar, join the discussion, ask questions and get answers. Rene Peters of TNO, Noe van Hulst (Hydrogen Envoy/hydrogen representative from the Ministry of Economic Affairs) and Rene Schutte of Gasunie will be discussing the important role of hydrogen and the position of the Netherlands within the transition to a sustainable energy supply.

Hydrogen Webinars

Hydrogen is expected to play an important role in the transition to a sustainable energy supply, along with energy savings, electrification and bio-based materials. It offers the possibility to greatly increase the use and application of wind and solar energy. But there is still a long way to go before we have large-scale production of green hydrogen by splitting water with energy from renewable sources. And there are questions, such as affordability, safety, spatial impact and, by extension, public support. In three webinars TNO will discuss background and developments on hydrogen, including these questions:

Optimising production of sustainable hydrogen with electrolysis

Hydrogen currently produced in our country is mainly used as a raw material for the production of fertilisers and the desulphurisation of fuels. Current hydrogen production is now based on natural gas... Read more

Hydrogen as raw material for industry and fuel transport

Industry uses huge amounts of hydrogen for the production of ammonia, various plastics and refining. But because the hydrogen is made from natural gas, a lot of CO2 is released. Green hydrogen produced... Read more
