Fueling the future with renewable gases B2B matchmaking

Fueling the Future with Renewable Gases

B2B Matchmaking Event

For all of whom participated, we would like to thank you for an awesome and successful event! Please have a look at the pictures of the event and the after movie.

The next Living Labs event to be organised by the Northern Connections partners will take place in Brussels on the 20th of November and will be focused on two cases related to smart mobility and CO2 neutral multi energy grids. More information here. Please make sure to register now!

The Fueling the Future with Renewable Gases event offers a unique opportunity to initiate and establish new international collaborations in the fields of hydrogen, fuel cells, electrolysis, gasification, smart grids, innovative mobility, compression and energy storage solutions. 

Organizing partners Energy Valley, the Development Agency NHN, the Northern Connections project partners and the Enterprise Europe Network bring together business, research and government who are active in, and dealing with the challenges related to renewable gases in the energy transition. Participants from multiple European countries will be present.

The key focus of this matchmaking event is centered around the Living Labs concept. For this event, two Living Labs with multiple innovation challenges present themselves:

  1. The Living Lab Hoogeveen: aims to deliver a (techno-economic) blueprint and corresponding technologies for the heat supply of 80 houses in Nijstad-Oost on 100% hydrogen (H2), based on operating with a hydrogen central heating boiler.
  2. The Living Lab Alkmaar: aims to develop and market innovations in the chain of biomass gasification, hydrogen carriers and to develop a blueprint for liquefied hydrogen in the transport sector, from production to end user.

Participate to get in direct contact with the project developers of both Living Labs and pitch your innovative solutions during the workshops or in one-on-one B2B meetings.

The matchmaking event offers you:

  • The opportunity to initiate new partnerships with international companies, research institutions and governmental authorities active on the theme of renewable gases (biogas, green gas, hydrogen, hydrogen carriers, gasification)
  • To get involved with innovative project developments
  • Meet international experts in your field of interest
