Innovative high temperature routes for hydrogen production - coordination action

Innovative high temperature routes for hydrogen production - coordination action

Objective

The growth of global energy demand during the 21th century, combined to the necessity to master GHG emissions could lead to the introduction of a new and universal energy carrier : Hydrogen. One option to access to Hydrogen Economy is to implement massive and innovative hydrogen production.. INNOHYP CA aims to coordinate efforts on the knowledge of hydrogen production technologies and to propose a roadmap for short, medium and long term research programs. Gathering eight organizations implied in various p rograms on the massive production of hydrogen, the Coordinating Action "INNOHYP-CA" has the following objectives. " Investigate the existing knowledge in Europe on the high temperature processes and other innovative ideas for massive Hydrogen production to establish the state of the art in Europe and position these technologies in regards of the carbon content technologies. " Create a platform for sharing and coordinating the results of the Specific Targeted Actions (STREP) in progress of high temperature p rocesses to start clustering of the innovative ways. " Define the needs and propose the research activities needed in the future up to consolidation of industrial production, to support the roadmaping in Europe mainly by HYWAYS. " Support the activities of the European Plat form, especially the Advisory Group and the appropriate Steering Committees. This support will include the preparation of the roadmap, cooperation agreements organization of specific events and training. " Coordinate the European activit ies at the International level specifically with the IEA, especially in the Implementing Agreement on Hydrogen (IA H2) and with the activities the signature of the International Cooperation Agreement for Hydrogen IPHE At least, INNOHYP CA will provide a t ool for piloting the technological choices making it possible to answer the increasing request of the hydrogen energy vector.
