Masterclass: Regional Hydrogen Chain

1 February 2024
9:00 am to 4:30 pm
Emmen, The Netherlands
The “Masterclass: Regional Hydrogen Chain” delivered by NHL Stenden and Drenthe College, both partners of the Greenwise campus which is supported by the Province of Drenthe and City of Emmen, covers the entire hydrogen value chain and the barriers and challenges in the energy transition in the region.

The European climate strategy and the transition to a decarbonized economy will imply a deep transformation of the production, storage, and consumption of energy in Europe, with carbon-free power generation, increased energy efficiency and the deep decarbonization of transport, buildings, and industry. This transition will require hydrogen at a large scale, and in particular clean hydrogen. However, the development of the local regional hydrogen value chains will also accelerate the energy transition in specific areas. 

Hydrogen, as an energy carrier, is a key pillar of the EU’s strategy to achieve its 2050 decarbonization goals, with an estimated 24% of hydrogen contributing to the total energy demand by 2050 and a 15% reduction in local emissions.

  • Patrick Cnubben (Hydrogen Architects) will explain the implementation of hydrogen value chain.
  • Duco Hartlief (Gemeente Súdwest-Fryslân) will discuss the role of hydrogen in the energy supply in the city of Bolsward.
  • Michel Karsten (Drenthe College) will discuss the challenges of hydrogen skills in the region
  • Inge Albregtse-Wijgerse (ORTESE) will discuss the implementation of the ORTESE project in the city of Emmen.
  • Dana Colpa (Centre of expertise Water Technology / Wetterskip frysland) will explain the ReGain project implemented in the city of Groningen.
