HAZEL Series of Webinars - 22 Sept to 17 Nov 2020


22 September 2020 - 17 November 2020

We are pleased to announce that our HAZEL series of webinars will commence on 22 September. 

The 'Hydrogen-Enabled Zero Emission Supply Chains' series of five webinars will address the production, sustainability, safety, application, innovation and entrepreneurship of the Hydrogen value chain.

The opening webinar on 22 September will look at "Industrial Sector-Coupling using a Connected eH2 cycle". 

Energy sector coupling refers to the increased integration of different energy carriers with their end uses, and is an area that Germany and the EC are increasingly focusing on.

The webinar will feature representatives from the Federal State Ministry in Saarland, Germany, the leading German manufacturer BOSCH, the German research institute, IZES gGmbH and the Assistant Professor of Energy Sustainability & Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Technology Development at Dublin City University, Dr James Carton.
