3:00 PM Hydrogen as an LNG Alternative
In the pursuit of carbon neutral shipping, many differing alternative marine fuels have been discussed. In particular, the industry is excited to about the potential of hydrogen as a viable marine fuel. Delegates will have the opportunity to hear from Jon Clipsham, Hydrogen Manager based at the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC) on Orkney in Scotland, where they are generating green hydrogen from constrained renewables and using it to decarbonise local power, heat and transport applications such as ferries. Hear more on how they think hydrogen can revolutionise the shipping and maritime industry using the key learnings from the Orkney living laboratory.
Discussion points will include:
· Making hydrogen a more cost efficient solution.
· Developing the necessary infrastructure for hydrogen refuelling and bunkering
· Retro-fitting vessels to accommodate hydrogen power
