Transition in the Gas Sector: How Hydrogen and Biogas can Decarbonize the Industry

Event Description

Christoph von dem Bussche, CEO of Gascade
Kasper Gadbert, Market Analyst at Biogas Denmark
Alexandra Lüth, Postdoc at CSEI
It is no secret that our world still runs on fossil fuels. The recent Russian invasion of Ukraine has shown how vulnerable we are to the fluctuations and disruptions of the oil and gas markets. Energy prices have spiked all over Europe, putting a strain on the economy and the environment. The need for energy independence and security has never been more urgent. As the time to reach our climate goals draws ever closer, how can we transform our infrastructure for more reliable and affordable renewables? In this session, we will look at two alternatives to fossil fuels: hydrogen and biogas. These technologies show great promise in reducing or even eliminating CO2 emissions from the gas sector.  
Hydrogen is an emerging energy solution at the top of the European agenda. It is a clean and versatile fuel that can be produced from water and electricity by using renewable sources like wind, solar, and biomass. It can also be transported and stored in existing gas pipelines, with some modifications. Hydrogen can be used for various applications, such as heating, power generation, industry, and mobility. By switching to hydrogen, we can reduce our dependence on fossil fuels, lower our greenhouse gas emissions, and create new jobs and opportunities.
Biogas can play a significant role in transforming Europe’s gas sector. It can be created from organic material and with some refining can be used in the place of natural gas. It is even possible to use in the creation of renewable hydrogen.

However, this transition is not without challenges. The technology and infrastructure for hydrogen are still developing, and the costs and regulations need to be aligned. Biogas also comes with education, community, and infrastructure challenges that need to be addressed. The gas sector needs to work together with the public and private sectors, as well as with the consumers and the society, to make this vision a reality. The green transition requires a collective effort and a long-term vision.

That is why we invite you to join us for an engaging event on the gas sector, where you will learn more about the potential and the pitfalls of hydrogen and biogas. You will hear from Gascade CEO Christoph von dem Bussche, who will share his insights and experience on how the sector is transforming, and how hydrogen infrastructure will support a clean, secure, and green Europe. Kasper Gadbert, Market Analyst at Biogas Denmark will discuss the potential biogas has to change the Danish energy system, and Alexandra Lüth, Postdoc at CSEI will talk about the latest research in hydrogen and green fuels. You will also have the opportunity to ask questions and interact with other participants who share your interest and passion for a sustainable future. Register now and join us in the transition.
