Technological advances in offshore wind power with Vincenzo Nava
TECNALIA’s researcher Ekain Fernández delves into low carbon hydrogen production; adapting distribution infrastructures; and tailoring processes and systems for its end use.
Green hydrogen plays a crucial role in the energy transition. It comes from renewable energy sources and is used for decarbonisation in a large number of areas and sectors: in the chemical industry, where it is used as a raw material; in industrial sectors that emit carbon dioxide (steelworks, refineries, cement plants); in transport and mobility; in the residential and tertiary sectors; and to transport energy on a massive scale and store it for long periods of time, among other uses.
At TECNALIA we develop technological solutions to meet the major challenges posed by hydrogen: large-scale, cost-effective low carbon hydrogen production; adapting transport and distribution infrastructures; and tailoring processes and systems for its end use.
TECNALIA is also strengthening its alliance with the National Hydrogen Centre to develop new key technologies throughout the hydrogen value chain, fostering the generation of clean hydrogen, implementing new infrastructures to transport it and promoting new processes in which it can be used.
On February 11, Ekain Fernández, Head of Hydrogen Technologies at TECNALIA, coordinator of the Hydrogen Distribution technical committee, and member of the executive committee of Hydrogen Europe Research will moderate the “Hydrogen Agenda” event. We will learn about the Hydrogen Roadmap from Jose Luis Cabo Sánchez, of the Ministry for Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge.
Javier Brey, chairman of AeH2, the Spanish Hydrogen Association, and Fernando Palacín, general manager of the Foundation for the Development of New Hydrogen Technologies in Aragon, will also attend the event.
In this way, we hope to do our bit to reach the analysts' target of meeting 24% of the world's energy demand by 2050, with annual sales in the range of 630 billion euros.
