GenComm Presentation at Energy Week 2022

GenComm partners from the Belfast Met-led EU energy project will present an EU Energy Week 2022 policy session on September 27, 2022, titled, The Commodification of Green H2 for Europe.
GenComm Presentation at Energy Week 2022
Bart Biebuyck, the Director of the Clean Hydrogen Partnership

Europe faces multiple pressures to decarbonize economies and to address the urgent need to achieve EU energy independence by accelerating the integration of greater renewable energy sources into its energy systems In order to accelerate the hydrogen revolution Europe must make hydrogen an everyday commodity.. For Europe’s energy journey to be widely accepted and deployed fossil fuels must be replaced with a commodity that brings a seamless change.

Enabling increasing integration of greater renewable energy sources into the energy mix can be achieved by hydrogen as a key green energy vector and will result in exponential growth of the green energy market.

What will be hydrogen’s role in the final energy mix of a future net-zero emission Europe? This session will examine how Europe can optimize the use of hydrogen for it to become an energy commodity and to accelerate the decarbonization journey for Europe by utilizing Green Hydrogen as a key energy vector.

The interactive session will examine how hydrogen can be positioned technically and environmentally to become an energy commodity. This session will examine how to optimize all stages in the 4 Stage Green H2 Commodification Value Chain.

To register for the session-


Paul McCormack, GenComm Program Manager and Belfast Met Innovation Manager will speak on • H2 Optimization

Optimization of Green H2 – building on the hydrogen topography –geographical Green H2 specialisms dependant on the local renewables and availability. A geographical approach preferable to a widespread sectoral approach leading to increased demand/deployment

Diana Raine, Hydrogen Advisor, Worley will speak on • H2 Actualization

She will detail the tangible benefits from Green H2 deployment and the challenges for hydrogen to reach its potential. How can we effectively address the barriers for hydrogen to become a meaningful part of the future energy mix in the timescales that are needed?

Marianna Rossi from GenComm Partner IZES GmbH will speak on • H2 Evaluation – IZES, GmbH, Germany.

Marianna will evaluate the social benefits and how Green H2 can assist  EU Communities face multiple challenges and become energy secure, sustainable and assure future growth.

Marianna will also detail how Green H2 is assisting overcoming the energy from renewable sources stalling due to intermittency, grid restrictions, curtailment, and high costs. And how Green H2 can deliver sustainable, renewable community scaled, H2 based, energy models

Dr. Rory Monaghan from GenComm Partner NUIG will speak on • H2 Validating P2X – NUI Galway Ireland

Validation of the use of Green H2 and accelerating through the creation of a techno-economic model enabling support tool.

Europe finds itself in the middle of a H2 energy revolution and crisis –where all of Europe must be informed, assisted and enabled to transition from fossil fuels to a net zero C02 destination. Hydrogen is no longer an ’if and why’ it is now ‘when and how,’

GenComm Program Manager Paul McCormack is looking forward to speaking at EU Energy Week saying, “GenComm has been a constant voice in EU Energy week since 2019 and we are delighted to return again to continue our message on generating energy security for communities,”

Bart Biebuyck, the Director of the Clean Hydrogen Partnership will introduce the four GenComm speakers, namely, Paul McCormack, GenComm Program Manager, Belfast Met, Marianna Rossi, IZES GmbH, Dr. Rory Monaghan, NUIG and Diana Raine, Hydrogen Advisor, Worley.
