EU Sustainable Energy Week

  • EU Sustainable Energy Week

European Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) is a month-long series of activities held during June to build a secure energy future for Europe. It brings together public authorities, private companies, NGOs and consumers to promote initiatives to save energy and move towards renewables for clean, secure and efficient power. Launched in 2006 by the European Commission, the EUSEW is organised by the Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) in close cooperation with Directorate-General for Energy.

You can take part in Sustainable Energy Week by:

  •     Creating or attending an Energy Day
  •     Competing for the Sustainable Energy Awards
  •     Presenting at or attending the Networking Village
  •     Organising a session or presentation at the Policy Conference.

Where you fit in… Everyone brings something different to the EUSEW. It is an ideal platform for sharing ideas and knowhow, and for forging alliances to bring about an Energy Union based on energy efficiency, decarbonising the economy, together with research, innovation and competitiveness.

The high point of EUSEW is the annual Policy Conference featuring leading figures and a diverse programme of sessions and side-events aimed at discussing and shaping Europe’s energy future. The Policy Conference is the most important European conference dedicated to sustainable energy policy issues. Sessions organised by the European Commission and energy stakeholders debate new policy developments, best practices and sustainable energy ideas, while networking events forge alliances. Awards for outstanding projects begin the week.

Energy Days take place throughout the month of June. Organised by local public and private organisations, Energy Days are activities and events that raise awareness of energy efficiency and renewables. Any activity can be an Energy Day – from a workshop, to a competition, to a tour of a power station – all engage citizens and energy stakeholders in building the Energy Union.

Together, we can spread awareness of how to use energy more sustainably, build a low-carbon economy based on renewables and have a strong, united approach to sustainable energy use.

As a leader in hydrogen technology development, Aberdeen is hosting a series of events during the 2017 Hydrogen Week to further support and share learning on hydrogen technologies. Local authorities, fleet operators, industry partners, businesses and policy makers are invited to discuss the future of hydrogen transport in Aberdeen and the rest of Europe.

Wednesday 15th March AM: Visit of Kittybrewster Station. Visit Aberdeen's Kittybrewster production and refuelling station. The Kittybrewster station is Aberdeen's first hydrogen station which delivers hydrogen for the 10 fuel cell electric buses currently in operation in Aberdeen.

Wednesday 15th March PM: NewBusFuel Public Launch Workshop. NewBusFuel is a study that commenced in summer 2015 and which has assessed the central technology and engineering solutions required for the refuelling of a large number of hydrogen fuel cell electric buses at a single bus depot. The study in coming years will advance into fleet development. The Public Launch Workshop will present the results of the study. For more information about NewBusFuel please visit the project website: http://newbusfuel.eu/

Energy Storage & Connected Systems

  • Olympia Exhibition Centre

Energy Storage & Connected Systems will bring together key industry figures to focus on the future of energy in the UK; covering practical examples of storage that are currently being deployed and how they integrate into a broader network of connected systems including smart buildings, grids and electric vehicle infrastructure.

The UK energy storage market offers great potential. It's a changing market but the underlying drivers remain the same - a significant increase in renewable energy supplies amid growing demand for energy and, at the same time, various factors are putting increasing pressure on the electricity grid. The landmark EFR (Enhanced Frequency Response) contracts have kick started the large-scale market and turned the eyes of the world on UK energy storage providers.

This event will focus on what the UK is doing today in energy storage with examples of real companies, real business, that’s happening now; where the market and technology will go in the next few years and how, in many cases, especially in urban environments, it will integrate with a broader connected system within the council, business or home premises.

9:00 am09:00

NWBA Annual Conference: Hydrogen - the Key Enabler for a Renewables Based Energy System

  • Papendal Conference Centre, Arnhem, Netherland

With the increasing targets for the production of renewable power set by policy makers, a transition to a new energy system able to cope with the intermittency of sun and wind power is needed. The need for large scale energy storage will increase significantly in order to ensure the continuity of power supply in such a system. Hydrogen has the ability capacity to service this large scale energy storage need. In addition, in combination with fuel cells, repowering of hydrogen can be accomplished efficiently, with only water vapor as by-product.

With large amounts of clean hydrogen becoming available from surplus renewable power, not only the power sector can be decarbonised, but opportunities will arise for the transportation and chemical sector as well. On the day of the congress we will give attention to the following topics:

·         The Paris agreement and the political environment

·         The need of energy transition

·         Large scale energy storage options and their efficiencies

·         The versatility of Hydrogen and Fuel Cells

·         Why do we have to make choices, we have to start now!

·         Hydrogen and fuel cell applications, the does and don’ts

·         Economy and Ecology

California Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Summit

  • Sacramento, California, USA

On October 5 and 6, 2016, the California Hydrogen Business Council (CHBC) will hold its fourth annual California Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Summit on the theme of ‘Growing Markets and Tackling Challenges’ in Sacramento.

Taking place at the at the California Environmental Protection Agency's headquarters in Sacramento, this signature event of the CHBC continues a dialogue between government agencies and businesses to address opportunities and challenges in key environmental, business and market areas.

 This Summit is being held at a pivotal time for hydrogen and fuel cells. Markets like forklift trucks and backup power for telecommunications are growing, stationary power and energy storage projects are operating and under development, and fuel cell vehicles and buses can be seen in increasing numbers on California roads.

There is unprecedented attention and activity to the use of these technologies to help clean California ports, and yet there are challenges to achieving the desired benefits. Challenges remain in building the necessary hydrogen infrastructure, financing projects, building sustainable supply chains for the manufacture and servicing of equipment, overcoming regulatory and permitting barriers for energy storage and hydrogen fueling, and educating the public.

These topics and more will be covered during the Summit, and we encourage you to attend, connect with business and government leaders from around the country, and share the vision of how this industry can address state environmental, energy and business goals and revolutionize our state's portfolio of energy solutions.
