Abstract: In order to achieve the objectives of the Paris Agreement and comply with the different roadmaps for reducing emissions, it is necessary to apply a combination of different technical (energy efficiency, increase renewable energy, CCUS, among others), legal and regulatory solutions (ETS-carbon pricing, LCA methodology, etc) as well as innovative new business models / value chains, new energy models and social awareness.

Renewable hydrogen will be part of the solution. As an energy vector, will play a key role in the energy transition and decarbonization of the economy. On one hand, hydrogen will allow the management and storage of renewable energies on a large scale, acting as a channel to different sectors such as mobility or the residential and industrial use of heat and power. On the other hand, renewable hydrogen will replace the one currently used in industry, thus contributing to the reduction of emissions of the sector. Innovation, science and technology will play a fundamental role in this transformation. Promoting the development and implementation of technology alternatives to produce low-carbon hydrogen will help us to achieve environmental goals. In this seminar, we will talk about hydrogen, with special focus on renewable hydrogen production methods such as electrolysis or the less mature photoelectrocatalysis.
