Today more and more countries have already established hydrogen programs to use hydrogen as a core part of their transition strategies. As governments will submit their revised National Contributions (NDCs), in order to meet the 2030 and beyond goals, before COP26, hydrogen will be crucial. Further, in the Lok Sabha during the Union Budget 2021-22, an announcement of the 'Hydrogen Energy Mission' has been made by the Government of India to explore the new avenues.
Keeping in view of the above, the Engg Activity Committee & Innovation & Incubation Centre, under the aegis of the Renewable Energy Society of India (RESI), was organized a Technical Session on "Hydrogen: Lightweight of periodic table plays big role in life on Earth” to explore the role of hydrogen in life on earth including in the Net-Zero transition. From storage to energy production to the grid and the gas network, there are many ways in which hydrogen can provide vital solutions to issues faced as part of the Energy Transition.
Date: February 20, 2020, at 11:30 Hrs to 12.30 Hrs (India Standard Time).
About the Speaker: Prof. (Dr.) S. Vasudevan (Senior Principal Scientist, CSIR-Central Electrochemical Research Institute).
Core discussion points & expected outcomes and learnings from the event:
This session will explore the role of hydrogen in life on earth including in the Net-Zero transition. From storage to energy production to the grid and the gas network, there are many ways in which hydrogen can provide vital solutions to issues faced as part of the Energy Transition. It will also help to-
· Support the establishment, in line with the announcement of 'Hydrogen Energy Mission' in the Lok Sabha during the Union Budget 2021-22.
· Identify the role for clean hydrogen in the energy transition and learn how hydrogen is approached by various governments and the future strategy.
· Access revolutionary hydrogen technologies & solutions and how different stakeholders can work together to ensure a reality for the hydrogen economy?
· Define how different geographies view and understand the importance; real gain of clean hydrogen in the energy transfer, the energy transition and the viability of hydrogen and the renewable hydrogen issues and obstacles.
