August 24, 2021 | RLI Managing Director Kathrin Goldammer has been appointed as an expert to the Market Simulation group of the European Agenda Process on Green Hydrogen. She is supported by Juliane Arriens, research associate in the RLI Research Unit Mobility with Renewable Energy.
Kathrin and Juliane advise the panel on how hydrogen as a green technology can support the transition of the energy system toward more climate-friendly generation types. Specifically, they provided feedback on a draft list of potential research questions developed for the panel.
European Green Hydrogen Research Initiative.
The Agenda Process on Green Hydrogen was launched in 2021 as a pilot initiative of the new European Research Area (ERA) to define research priorities and common steps for implementation through a transparent and participatory process. Driven by many European Union Member States, third countries and in close coordination with the European Commission, the agenda process brings together academia, industry, civil society, and public administration to build an inter- and transdisciplinary European green hydrogen community.
Public participation process launched.
In addition to the Market Simulation group, there are two other thematic expert groups: ‘Transport and Infrastructure’ and ‘Production’. Based on the identified research questions, a public participation process is now starting for all three topics. This will run until September 26, 2021, 23:59 CEST and is open to anyone interested in contributing their own ideas on green hydrogen research. It takes about 30 minutes to complete the survey, and the results will be discussed at a workshop in October and finally presented at a final conference in Bonn on December 16-17, 2021.
