Seminar on Hydrogen as a Fuel and Financial Bonds

August 31, 2023 12:00 pm

The Wind Value and H-Wind Research Projects Present the Industry Meets Academia Summer Seminar

In-person and online at 12 noon Thursday 31st August 2023

Environmental Research Institute, Ellen Hutchins Building, University College Cork, Ireland, T23 XE10

The Wind Value and H-Wind Summer Seminar presents two topics, a technical study on hydrogen in co-generation engines and a proposal to use compliance bonds to encourage a circular economy. Benoit Mayol works for Clarke Energy and is completing his Masters degree in Energy, Environment, and Innovative Materials, at the Université Côte d’Azur. Benoit will talk about the use of hydrogen as a fuel which can provide wind energy with a market and address the intermittency problem. Kevin Campbell is about to complete a H.Dip. in Sustainability and Climate Action for Enterprise in University College Cork (UCC) and has previously worked in the finance industry. Kevin will talk about the use of financial bonds which pay out on successful recycling/repurposing/reuse of individual parts of wind turbines. Both Kevin and Benoit have been working on the Wind Value project during the summer (2023). The seminar will be held in online using Teams and in-person at UCC.
