In the framework of the preparation of the Green Hydrogen Forum (6-8 June 2021) we initiate a discussion on hydrogen. We welcome opinions, surveys, reports, etc. from Forum Speakers and Attendees. You may send materials to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The list of countries involved in or planning hydrogen production include Canada, France, Japan, Australia, Norway, Germany, Portugal, Spain, Chile, and Finland, as well as the European Union. According to the International Energy Agency’s Hydrogen Projects Database, nearly 320 green hydrogen production demonstration projects have been announced worldwide — a total of about 200 MW of electrolyzer capacity — with new projects being added on almost a weekly basis.
The projects include:
- the largest-class green hydrogen production alkaline electrolyzer project the 10-MW Fukushima Hydrogen Energy Research Field in Namie, Fukushima Prefecture, Japan (hydrogen from the field is being used mostly to power stationary hydrogen fuel cell systems and fuel cell vehicles),
- Air Liquid in Becancour, Canada (gearing up to put online a 20-MW proton exchange membrane (PEM) electrolyzer; a project it envisions will supply North American markets for industrial use and mobility),
- under construction is Shell, ITM Power, and SINTEF’s 10-MW PEM REFHYNE project at the Rhineland refinery in Germany,
- the Australian company Infinite Blue Energy last April secured funding for its AU$300 million 52.2-MW Arrowsmith Hydrogen Project near Perth, which is slated to begin operating in 2022.
A 310-MW alkaline electrolyzer could also begin operating at a biofuel plant in Paraguay in 2022. Also in 2022, the first of two 100-MW H2V industry production units could come online in Normandy, France. In 2023, several more mega-projects spanning 17 MW to 538 MW may mark major milestones, including in Utah, the Netherlands, France, Norway, Sweden, and Germany.

Green Hydrogen Forum (8-9 June 2021)
With the increasing pace of development of hydrogen, and with hydrogen seen as a way to further expand renewables and help with energy transition, we organize the Green Hydrogen Forum on 8-9 June 2021. The Forum will serve as a platform for sharing and discussing the technical, regulatory, environmental, financial, and policy considerations for developing green hydrogen projects further. Speakers and attendees are government organizations, regulators, energy companies, TSOs, green hydrogen project developers, and technology and solution providers.
