Nordic Energy Research welcomes you to two days of workshops and site visits on September 26–27th in Fredericia, Denmark.

Register for the workshop here.

The rationale behind the workshop is to gather representatives from local authorities, businesses and civil society to discuss challenges and opportunities for a rollout of Hydrogen, electrofuels, CCU and CCUS.

Fredericia offers an interesting and inspiring example of how businesses and local authorities are joining forces to create industrial symbiosis and how citizen involvement has been integrated in this process. What are the takeaway lessons for other Nordic communities planning to create such value chains? What are prevailing challenges?

The workshop is inspired by the recommendations from the report Hydrogen, electrofuels, CCU and CCS in a Nordic context. How can Nordic stakeholders, authorities and politicians contribute to increased production, distribution, and use of hydrogen, electrofuels and CCUS? The report also provides an overview of Nordic activities in this dynamic field.

The aim of workshop is to offer a venue of informal and frank exchange of ideas that will be summarised and forwarded to relevant authorities in the Nordic countries. Nordic Energy Research is planning to host similar workshops in other Nordic countries.
