To remove the obstacles that can hinder the large-scale application of hydrogen, Kiwa has committed itself with seven other hydrogen pioneers to the HyDelta research program. The aim is scientific research whose results can be put into practice immediately.
The declaration of intent for the HyDelta collaboration was signed during the Wind Meets Gas symposium, which took place in Groningen last month. In addition to Kiwa, the University of Groningen, Province of Groningen, TKI New Gas, Gasunie, TNO, ERIG, Hanze University of Applied Sciences Groningen and New Energy Coalition are participating in the program.
HyDelta focuses on an integrated approach to solutions for production, storage, transport, distribution and use of hydrogen in order to improve and accelerate the development of the hydrogen economy. Directly applicable research is central here. The HyDelta participants set to work with the full breadth of hydrogen application, from transport and safety to public acceptance, economic obstacles and scaling up at regional and (inter) national level.
