Come meet the poster presenters to ask them questions and discuss their work

We would like to invite you to come and see the posters at our upcoming conference. The posters will showcase a diverse range of research topics, and will give delegates an opportunity to engage with the authors and learn more about their work. Whether you are a seasoned researcher or simply curious about the latest developments in your field, we believe that the posters will offer something of interest to everyone. So please join us at the conference and take advantage of this opportunity to learn and engage with your peers in the academic community. We look forward to seeing you there!

PO143: Is it optimum to produce green hydrogen onshore using offshore wind power or is green hydrogen production offshore a better alternative?

Brian Horne, Offshore Wind Technical Director, Kent


Objective The world is moving towards a net zero carbon future. However, how will this be achieved? There is no "one size fits all", but rather a mix of possible energy solutions which depend on factors such as technology maturity, geographic location, infrastructure, legislation. One possible energy solution for a net zero carbon future is the use of hydrogen, more specifically "Green" hydrogen. Green hydrogen is produced via the electrolysis of water, meaning an electrical current is passed through water to separate it into its component parts of hydrogen and oxygen, with the energy for the process being supplied by a renewable source, such as wind via a wind turbine. There are two possible locations where green hydrogen can be produced using renewable offshore wind power: onshore or offshore. This paper will compare benefits and drawbacks of using each of these locations, considering the production process and economic metrics.
