Webinar on HyBalance

September 24, 2020 the HyBalance project hosted a webinar on the results and learnings from the HyBalance project. The webinar touched upon power-to-hydrogen system’s performance, grid balancing and environmental impact. Below you can see the program for the webinar, the presentations and a link to a recorded version of the entire webinar.

Questions from chat channel
Moderated by Tejs Lausten Jensen, Hydrogen Denmark

Session II:

Panel discussion focusing on:

  • which role do we expect electrolyzers will play in balancing the electricity system when containing an increasing share
    of variable renewable energy sources?
  • how do we see the market development and the need for EU regulatory frameworks – including certifications?

Panel of invited guests:
Grzegorz Pawelec, Hydrogen Europe
Daniel Fraile, Wind Europe
Moderated by Tejs Lausten Jensen

Wider panel discussion with questions raised by the audience via chat channel
