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.
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.

Lennart van der Burg and Roel Natris of TNO will discuss the applications of hydrogen in the transition to a sustainable energy supply. TNO is involved in a large number of national and international projects in the field of sustainable mobility and logistics.
TNO and partners are also working on pioneering technologies such as the conversion of electricity into heat (Power2Heat), the production of hydrogen via innovative electrolysers (Power2Hydrogen), the conversion of sustainable hydrogen into fuels (Power2Fuels also known as E-Fuels or Electrofuels) and the indirect thermochemical and direct electrochemical conversion of water, CO2 and nitrogen with the help of electricity to chemicals (Power2Chemicals).
