Building a sustainable and competitive hydrogen market in Europe will require significant infrastructure development related to hydrogen production, transmission, storage, and distribution. The topology of a future hydrogen network will therefore depend, to a large degree, on the balance between the optimal areas for hydrogen production, the location of end users, and the delivery options to link the two. When it comes to transmission and distribution, options such as pipelines, trucks, and ships are all under study, alongside a level of re-purposing and hydrogen blending of existing gas pipelines, while energy storage facilities such as salt caverns may also play a role.
This webinar will explore the logistical and infrastructure-related development of a future European hydrogen economy and evaluate the optimal combinations of production locations and scales, transportation, and storage. The panel will discuss questions such as: What will the topology of a future European hydrogen economy look like, and what factors will play a role in determining this topology? What is the optimal location of hydrogen production facilities? What role should hydrogen valleys, mid-range, and backbone transmission play? What regulatory changes will be necessary to support the deployment of hydrogen infrastructure?
