The DAAD London is hosting an online talk on the topic of hydrogen research in Germany covering the areas of strengths and opportunities and how to combat climate change and energy transition. The event will take place on 25th November 2021 at 5:30pm.

For decades, hydrogen has been hailed as a revolutionary alternative to fossil fuels, yet there are a number of challenges that remain to be solved. Bringing down production costs, converting existing production processes – of so-called gray hydrogen made from natural gas, coal, and oil – to sustainable methods, and expanding the renewable energy supply needed to achieve both are just some of the crucial issues for realising commercially viable and realistic hydrogen strategies. Nonetheless, hydrogen holds great potential in certain areas and solving these challenges is critical to achieving net-zero emissions, particularly in energy-intensive and hard-to-decarbonise sectors.

With the Nationale Wasserstoffstrategie in Germany and the UK Hydrogen Strategy, both countries conduct important research on production, distribution, storage, and use of hydrogen in hopes of deploying it at large scale. International cooperation and collaboration will be vital in creating the infrastructure and platforms necessary for the establishment of globally competitive hydrogen markets. Discussing with leading experts in this sector, we will point out the particular strength and chances in the respective country’s academic and R&D community.

The live stream will take place on this website on 25 November 2021, 5:30pm.
