The Aberdeen Hydrogen Festival will host the first ever Transatlantic Power to Gas (TAP2G) workshop on 3rd-4th October (2019).
The event will be co-hosted by the EMEC Hydrogen and New York-based Institute of Gas Innovation and Technology (I-GIT) at Stony Brook University.
TAP2G aims to bring together industry experts from across Europe and the US to highlight areas of opportunity for transatlantic collaborations.
With four sessions across two days, the TAP2G workshop will provide a platform for participants to draw on collective expertise and identify common areas of interest to move the industry forward with power to gas deployments.
“We’re excited to be partnering with Stony Brook to host the first TAP2G workshop during the Aberdeen Hydrogen Festival,” said Jon Clipsham, Hydrogen Manager at EMEC.
“Collaboration between Europe and the US is important to advance the power to gas sector globally. We are looking forward to a very successful event, which I am sure will enable many new relationships to be forged.”
TAP2G will address four critical areas for power to gas growth:
- Market acceptance and readiness
- Technology and scale-up
- Systems integration and infrastructure
- Market pull and demand
“The P2G concept poses key technical challenges for integration of three technology (hydrogen production, transient storage and power production) to maintain high process efficiently. The TAP2G workshop, in partnership with EMEC, will target these key topics,” said Devinder Mahajan, Director at the Institute of Gas Innovation and Technology.
The wider Hydrogen Festival will include practical examples on hydrogen development, the European picture for transport, heat and power, power to gas workshops, and will showcase a hydrogen car from the Shell eco-marathon and Arcola schools challenge.
