Decarbonising the Maritime Sector - Green Hysland & H2Ports Webinar:

Maritime transport plays an essential role in the EU economy. 77 % of European external trade is moved by sea – 35 % of all trade by value between EU Member States (source: emis). For EU islands, this sector is even more critical, as it is their lifeline in order to ensure tourism, connectivity with the mainland, and access to essential goods. Yet, emissions in the field continue to grow and vessels are still predominantly using fossil fuels as their energy source.

The Green Hysland and H2Ports H2020 projects, both co-funded by the Clean Hydrogen Partnership, are joining forces for an exclusive webinar in order to present their work on the use of fuel cells and hydrogen (FCH) technologies to decarbonise the ports of Palma de Mallorca and Valencia, in Spain. They have also invited other speakers to share guidance and best practices on how to cut down emissions in the sector, and how to replace fossil fuels by clean alternatives to power ferries and other vessels.

Curious to hear about the European Commission’s programmes in place to accelerate the energy transition of sea transport and ports? See different examples of using fuel cells and green hydrogen technologies in ports? Discover the latest developments for clean ferries and boats? Register now!


The webinar will take place from 10:00 to 11:30 on the 5th of October.
