Association Webinars: Hydrogen in Europe - The Perspective of the Gas Industry



Renewable hydrogen is considered a strategic component for the European Green Deal. In this context, the existing infrastructure for natural gas in Europe may prove to be an asset for the transport of hydrogen. But what are the requirements, both technical and economic, for switching from transporting natural gas to transporting hydrogen? In this webinar, Dr. Timm Kehler, Director of Zukunft ERDGAS, and Daniel Muthmann, Head of Strategy, Policy and Communication at Open Grid Europe, will present their ideas on how to solve these issues. The webinar is jointly organized by GEE (German IAEE affiliate) and AAEE (Austrian IAEE affiliate) and will be moderated by Prof. Georg Erdmann (GEE) and Prof. Reinhard Haas (AAEE).
