Hydrogen has great potential of storing large amounts of energy over a longer period. With cogeneration, we can use that hydrogen in the most efficient and affordable way when we need electricity and heat. It is the smartest way to ensure that there is enough energy at any time, and it will be key in the roll out of more renewable electricity and electrified solutions. In this webinar, Hydrogen Europe will present the position of hydrogen cogeneration in the European Hydrogen Strategy. Two best practice projects of hydrogen CHPs and hydrogen fuel cells will give insights about the status quo of the technic.

Nicolas Brahy holds a PhD in law and has 15 years of experience in R&D and innovation issues of which 11 years in the hydrogen sector gained in Hydrogen Europe and before in the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking. Previously he worked for the European Commission and lectured at the University of Louvain in “legal and economic aspect of regulation” and “Public finances”.
Steven Griffiths spent almost a decade in the solar PV sector, working for Tritec-Energy, REI and most notably Solarcentury based in London. He started working with SOLIDpower in late 2017 to help support and develop the sales effort in both the UK and Irish markets.
At 33 Steven started his own engineering business and 2 years later started a Joint Venture with a Swiss / German solar panel mounting frame manufacturer. Having come from an engineering, production and design background and holding technical sales roles for almost 20 years within various markets, the temptation of Solid Oxide Fuel cells was too strong a technology to resist. Ever changing and full of promise.
Stefan Liesner studied Mechanical Engineering and Business Economics at the University of Applied Sciences in Münster, and Operations Management at the University of Nottingham. Since 2008, he has been active at 2G in various functions. Between 2018 and 2020, he changed to another industry to gain experience in the field of vibration technology.
Lisa Ruf leads many of Element Energy’s projects for the development and deployment of innovative technologies in the energy sector. She provides advice to national and local governments, international organisations, research organisations and private companies to support technologies trials, forming policy recommendations and strategic decision-making across sectors including electric and hydrogen vehicles and stations, battery storage, micro-generation, and consumer attitudes.
Lisa holds a first-class master’s degree in Sustainable Development and Environmental Management from the Paris 1 University Pantheon Sorbonne where she gained a thorough understanding of sustainable development issues related to project management and development as well as challenges facing the low carbon energy sector.
