ERRA Hydrogen Webinar - Outlook for the Energy Sector
ERRA member regulators recognise the important role hydrogen will play in their future energy plans. The Association therefore facilitates the gradual focus towards this new energy source through the first open topical online event. The hydrogen webinar on November 4 is dedicated to the H2 outlook in the energy sector presenting the latest developments in terms of H2 policy and H2 regulation frameworks for the uptake, particularly in the context of the soon-to-be published EU strategy for the fuel. Introducing hydrogen to the energy networks will also be approached from the perspective of technical standards and their harmonization. Moreover, the event will present some recent pilot projects on hydrogen utilization in distribution networks.
ERRA’s first hydrogen webinar will therefore combine latest information on H2 policy & H2 regulation perspectives and show pioneering case studies that pave the way for the future industrial scale utilization of the novel energy source.
