Hydrogen & Fuel Cells Energy Summit
24th January 2018 @ 8:00 am - 25th January 2018 @ 5:00 pm
ACI’s Hydrogen & Fuel Cells Energy Summit will be taking place in Brussels, on the 24th & 25th January 2018. The two day event will bring together key industry stakeholders from all facets of the hydrogen industry to discuss the required economical and infrastructural innovations for a sustainable future energy carrier. The key discussions will involve monetisation, latest technologies implementations, material optimisation, production and transportation.
The main objectives of the industry are to:
- Reduce the production cost of fuel cell systems
- Increase the electrical efficiency and the durability of the different fuel cells used
- Use H2 to support renewable energy source integration
The sector has involved already an important number of energy end-use agents, from electric vehicles to power plants.
In the afternoon of Tuesday 23rd January 2018, a conference delegation will receive a unique opportunity to visit the HYDROGENICS production plant of water electrolysers and the COLRUYT Hydrogen refuelling station for hydrogen electric cars and hydrogen forklifts with onsite water electrolysis using wind energy. The places are limited and subject to approval by Hydrogenics. As the places are allocated on a first-come first-served basis, please confirm your interest when booking your spaces.
Summit Topics for Discussion include:
- Overview of the actual hydrogen and fuel cells market
- Latest technologies involved in the renewable sources
- Policy and regulations
- Power-to-gas solutions
- Decarbonisation of the energy sector
- Hydrogen storage improvements
- Security aspects in hydrogen production, storage and distribution
- Monetisation advice and partnership
- Hydrogen mobility applications
- Integration and standards
While on the 19th century the steam engine and on the 20th century the internal combustion engine were the main focuses, it is likely that the fuel cell technology will take the lead during the 21st century. With incredible advances recently in hydrogen it is the best time to explore this booming industry: the latest innovations, the leader investments and the monetisation opportunities.
