Welcome to a webinar organized by Chalmers Energy and Transport Areas of Advance.
When: 4 November 2020, at 12:00-13:45. Place: Online. Platform Zoom. Last day to register 29 October.
The energy and transport sectors need to be radically restructured to meet the Paris Agreement. By 2045, the Swedish aim is to have no net emissions of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. A huge challenge.
How do we transform the industry, heavy transport, aviation and shipping? Hydrogen is pointed out by many as part of the solution.
“The new hydrogen economy can become a growth engine that helps us out of the economic crisis created by Covid19”, said Frans Timmermans, Vice-President of the European Commission this summer in connection with the presentation of A Hydrogen Strategy for a Climate Neutral Europe.
The strategy shows that hydrogen can play a key role in several areas.
During the webinar, we will hear about the view on hydrogen in Europe as well as research results on how fuel cells can be improved. The participants in the panel will thereafter discuss the role hydrogen can play in a number of different areas, such as shipping, aviation, heavy road transport, the process industry and the electricity system.
