Storage and infrastructure are critical to the delivery of a resilient net zero energy system, enabling our changing energy demands to be supplied by a new, low carbon energy supply mix. With high investments, long asset lives and long build times, the decisions made today will have direct impacts on our efforts to become net zero in 2050.

With the imminent release of the National Infrastructure Strategy, please join our esteemed panel of experts from across the energy sector to explore the implications of changing energy demands on infrastructure and energy storage. The panel will cover both the big whole system questions on long term strategy as well as questions on near term system needs.

Charting your organisation’s response to the climate emergency

11 June 2020
11.00 - 12.00

The UK is one of a growing number of countries that has set itself on an ambitious journey to cut greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050 to prevent the worst impact of climate change.

As part of its contribution, the EI has pledged to end the impact of its operations on the climate. In May we set science-based greenhouse gas emission reduction targets for our central operations through to 2035, en route to reaching net zero well before 2050.

The EI invites you to join our experts in energy and carbon management as they demystify this process for organisations small and large.

This insightful free webinar, chaired by the President of the Energy Institute Steve Holliday FREng FEI, will include an opportunity for you to put your questions to the panel and also get their tips for embarking on the net zero journey in your own organisation.
                              

Agenda:

21 April 2021, 14:00 - 15:15 BST

About the webinar:

Hydrogen has enormous potential to address the challenges of hard to abate sectors - e.g. industrial, heavy goods, marine, seasonal storage - and could be a solution to curtailment during excess production of renewable electricity. Hydrogen can be used in a wide range of applications, from fuelling vehicles to heating buildings and powering industry. It produces zero emissions at the point of use and can be produced from renewables, such as solar and wind.

Hydrogen is a core part of Next Generation EU Recovery Plan. It maintained a strong momentum in 2019, gaining interest amongst policy makers. It was a record year for electrolysis capacity becoming operational, according to IEA’s Hydrogen Report.

That said, more efforts are still required to:

• Scale up to reduce cost
• Replace high-carbon with low-carbon hydrogen
• Expand hydrogen reach to new applications

During this webinar, you will hear from industry experts debating the future of hydrogen and its position in a net zero economy, whilst sharing their insights on:

• Could 2021 mark a turning point for hydrogen?
• COVID-19 Recovery - is this the time to invest in creating the infrastructure needed for a hydrogen economy?
• Green vs blue?
• Teesside and Humber industrial clusters for UK and their plans for becoming net zero
• Understanding the feasibility of hydrogen in comparison to the alternatives

Agenda:

14:00 - Welcome from the chair and insights into EI’s hydrogen guide

14:10 - The future of hydrogen: opportunities and challenges
  • What percentage of the world’s final energy demands and CO2 abatement required to limit global warming could be met by hydrogen?
  • Paths to hydrogen, (green vs. blue) competitiveness, and its cost
  • Could stimulus packages help hydrogen momentum to continue in a post COVID-19 crisis?
  • How can the deploying of CCUS (blue) and electrolysis (green) accelerate hydrogen uptake?
  • Could 2021 mark a turning point for the global clean energy with hydrogen at its core?
  • Identifying the right innovative financing scheme and policy framework
  • COVID-19 Recovery - is this the time to invest in creating the infrastructure needed for a hydrogen economy?
  • Understanding the feasibility of hydrogen in comparison to the alternatives
14:30 - What are the fundamental differences between green and blue hydrogen?
  • What role do they play in energy transition?
  • How can the deploying of CCUS (blue) and hydrogen from low carbon generation (green) accelerate hydrogen uptake?
  • Paths to hydrogen (green vs. blue) competitiveness and its cost
  • What solutions do they offer for transport, heating, and industry?
  • The cost, logistics, and market offerings of green and blue – who has the competitive advantage?
  • Should blue be excluded from EU’s hydrogen strategy?
  • Is green hydrogen the fuel of the future?
  • Green vs blue – which could spur a green recovery post COVID-19?
  • North H2 project (Europe’s largest green hydrogen project - offshore wind)
14:55 - Innovative regions, industrial and homes
  • Zero carbon Humber
  • Teeside (blue hydrogen, although Humber has green later)
  • Considerations around heating infrastructure
  • What are the benefits to support consumers with the switchover?
  • Hydrogen’s role in domestic homes
