Topic 2022: The Emerging Hydrogen Economy: Finding Opportunities and Maximising Value

Key topics will include:

  • Evolution of the power market, system needs and emerging technologies
  • The role of flexible assets in achieving net zero
  • Key risks and financing challenges for flexible assets
  • The economics of merchant solar co-located with battery storage systems
  • Key risks and financing challenges for flexible assets
  • Labour’s plan for power sector decarbonisation and flexibility

Developments in policy, technology and economics are driving interest in low-carbon hydrogen. Pivotally, this year has seen the gas crisis in Europe – caused by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. The culmination of this has led to an increased focus on energy security, and on the role that electrolytic hydrogen in particular could play in substituting a portion of gas consumption. Indeed, the European Union has recently ramped up its targets for renewables deployment and hydrogen production and imports as part of its “REPowerEU” plan.

Many of Europe’s major economies have launched strategies and support for the future of hydrogen. Hundreds of projects globally have been announced with the aim of producing hydrogen at scale.

As a fuel, hydrogen offers a way to eliminate emissions from sectors of the economy that are hardest to decarbonise, as well as to provide much needed inter-seasonal storage in energy systems with high levels of variable renewable power generation.

Consequently, hydrogen is likely to be a vital piece in the Net Zero puzzle.

Designed to provide actionable insights through thought-provoking debates, the Aurora Hydrogen Conference 2022 will focus on the emerging hydrogen economy. Considering the role of hydrogen in reaching Net Zero, and the European policy and market landscape, this is an unmissable event identifying the best opportunities for hydrogen in Europe.

The Aurora Hydrogen Conference 2022 is the place to meet, network and share your views with other major players in the hydrogen space.
