Event Summary:

Belgium Webinar | Clean Hydrogen – Project Challenges and Bottlenecks

Clean hydrogen is part of a group of technologies that need to be deployed to accelerate decarbonisation and is being considered as an opportunity to reshape several national industrial sectors, in a recovery perspective after the COVID-19 pandemic.

The momentum exists along the entire value chain and is creating cost reductions in production, transmission, and end-use cases alike. However, live projects and discussions with stakeholders show that various challenges need to be tackled.

Discussion points:

- The application of clean hydrogen within hard to abate sectors of the economy in general and the transportation sector in particular

- Necessary evolution from a "structured market" to an H2-ecosystem with examples in the Belgian market of innovative pilot projects aimed at kick starting green hydrogen applications within existing energy clusters

- Project risk, lack of midstream regulation and price

- Key upstream issues (e.g. procurement model and performance guarantees)
