Building Innovative Green Hydrogen systems in an Isolated Territory: a pilot for Europe

Deliverables

Exploitation and dissemination plan

The Draft Dissemination and Exploitation Plan is presented in this Deliverable 6.1. This gives details of the how the impact of the project will be maximised through dissemination activities with key stakeholder. The dissemination will emphasise the benefits from wider replication and further deployments of renewable energy with fuel cell & hydrogen (FCH) technology in isolated or constrained territories.

A report of the business models to be disseminated to OHT and follower territories

At the start of the project (Year 1) a financial analysis will be undertaken considering several scenarios. This will include consideration of capital and operational costs and the generation of cash flow projections. An analysis in HOMER (or similar tool) of possible business models and hydrogen integration in the follower territory and other possible territories included in the Hydrogen Territories Platform will be included in the report.

A report into the environmental impact of the project

The environmental impact of the project will be assessed. The report will include the calculation of the energy balance of the H2 production and transport, followed by a detailed Life Cycle Assessment according to ISO 14040 and ISO 14044.

A report into the societal impact of the project

Societal impact analysis will be conducted using Social Life Cycle Assessment (S-LCA) methodology and will consider the impact categories: human capital, cultural heritage and human well-being. Five main stakeholder categories are defined: workers, local community, society (national and global), consumers, and value chain actors. Of special interest are indicators as the number of jobs created and the attitudes towards hydrogen within the local population. The latter will take the form of a survey of the public and stakeholders to note improvement using a suitable tool such as SurveyMonkey. This first report will be written after year 1.
