Hydrogen and Mobility

Hydrogen has the potential to not only play a significant role in reducing emissions in the transportation sector, it could also serve as a carrier fuel for renewable energy. How close are we to realising such a utopian future energy system? What challenges must the transportation and the hydrogen industry overcome to achieve this end?

Joining us to answer these questions will be Jan Willem Kelder. He is the former CEO of TNO and a former vice-admiral for the Royal Dutch Navy. Now, he serves on the advisory board of H2Fuel-Systems, working towards developing Hydrogen as a viable substitute for fossil fuels.

Our second speaker is Ben Visser, founder and managing partner at Hydrogen Speedup. This specialised knowledge management firm unites student teams and researchers to enable an ecosystem for innovation in hydrogen technology. With a view to realizing the European Commission’s vision for a hydrogen-based economy by 2050, Hydrogen Speedup plans to build the world’s first zero-emission solar-plant that transforms natural gas into Hydrogen.

Also joining the discussion is Bastiaan du Pre, participated in an international 24-hour hydrogen challenge last month, where he drove a hydrogen-powered car across Europe! Besides having a unique experience to share, Bastiaan also works as a consultant for Infram –  Infram are working on the practical aspects of hydrogen mobility and launching Hydrogen tank stations across the Netherlands.

To round up the discussion, our final speaker is Wim Velghe, who will be representing Air Liquide, which has built a hydrogen refuelling installation to refill the HYDROVILLE of CMB in Antwerp and will also help refuel this boat on a regular base in the nearby port. Wim Velghe works as a business developer at Air Liquide. He is a hydrogen expert and advises companies that are looking to build new installations or modify their existing hydrogen plant.

Together, we will try to de-mystify the Hydrogen industry, listen to their perspective, dive into the technology, and discuss what the future holds for Hydrogen. Or what Hydrogen holds, for our future…
