On January 14, the high-level group of experts on hydrogen security from South Korea visited BAM. The members of the delegation are employees of the Korean Ministry of Foreign Affairs and leading research institutions in the country, such as the Korea Energy Economics Institute (KEEi), the Korean Institute for Energy Research (KIER) and the Korean Institute for Science and Technology (KIST).
The delegation was accompanied by high-ranking employees of the Korean embassy in Berlin as well as an employee of the Federal Foreign Office from the department for energy and raw materials foreign policy. The visit of the Korean delegation served to prepare the visit of a large business delegation from South Korea to Berlin in March 2020.
The Korean experts were welcomed by scientists from the hydrogen energy storage group at BAM. The goal was an initial exchange on security, production, storage, storage and possible applications in the energy supply with hydrogen. BAM focuses its research on renewable energies, their storage, and hydrogen research. The BAM experts presented their current research work using short keynote speeches and posters. The experts from South Korea were also interested in finding out to what extent BAM contributes to the legal regulations on hydrogen security. This was followed by a laboratory inspection for the storage of compressed gas. Both sides declared their interest in a future research cooperation in the field of hydrogen.
BAM is a higher federal authority in the division of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi)
