Speaker: Manuel Simm, International Key Account Manager H2; Dr. Holger Brauer, Quality Assurance Research & Development | Mannesmann Line Pipe GmbH
Pure hydrogen will be one of the main energy carriers in the changeover of the primary energy supply to renewable energy sources. For the transport of large quantities of hydrogen gas, pipelines are the most viable solution both economically and ecologically.
Since hydrogen/methane mixtures will also be used on the way to a hydrogen-based future, current and future investigations and considerations are concerned not only with pure hydrogen gas but also with these gas mixtures.
Speaker: Nick Barilo, Director of the Center for Hydrogen Safety, American Institute of Chemical Engineers
Communicating hydrogen-specific safety guidance is critical to the global success of hydrogen’s role in the energy transition. While hydrogen has been used safely in industrial applications for nearly a century, a substantial expansion of its use as a fuel involves a wider and more diverse group of stakeholders. This webinar will discuss the need for safety, identify key safety resources available and highlight future activities to enable the safe and timely transition to hydrogen and fuel cell technologies.
Speaker: Prof. Dr. Robi Banerjee, Professor for Theoretical Astrophysics (W2), University of Hamburg
We are living in dramatic times of climate change and its impact on the Earth’s environment, on our quality of life and on the global migration of humans. Hence, it is high time we change the way we consume energy and switch to CO2-free energy sources. The most powerful and reliable energy source, which we could easily tap, is the sun. With the power of the sun (which is also responsible for the winds on Earth) we can easily satisfy the world’s total energy demand. An issue which is often raised when it comes to the large-scale usage of renewable energy sources is transportation and storage as those sources are highly localized and temporally fluctuating.
