Workshop presentations: Hydrogen and the offshore energy system
A workshop for understanding the potential of hydrogen for transforming the offshore energy system took place on 26 June at the 2019 Global Offshore Wind conference.
Numerous drivers are behind the transformation of the offshore energy system, with oil and gas decommissioning, offshore wind expanding rapidly and shipping and ports transforming operations to reduce emissions. The aims of this workshop were:
- To broaden the understanding of the technical, commercial and policy challenges and barriers to integrating hydrogen into the offshore system to facilitate energy transition
- To identify opportunities for a programme of whole systems research, demonstration and innovation as well as industry, government and academic collaborators with potential to deliver it.
