During the meeting, each partner gave un update on the development of the activities: management overview by AURA-EE and communication overview by ENERGAP & EWO, WP1 overview by FBK, WP2 overview by APE FVG and WP3 overview by CasaClima. After the lunch there was also a pilots’workshop with all project partners.
Eleonora Cordioli, researcher at the Center for Sustainable Energy and leader of the first work package of the project, showed the results of the two questionnaires sent to different stakeholders located in the Alpine region. The first questionnaire aimed at assessing the knowledge on the final uses, the technologies and regulations in the field of hydrogen as well as gathering the perception of the stakeholders on the priority and barriers for the successful deployment of hydrogen in the Alpine context. The second questionnaire, instead, had the purpose to collect information on the hydrogen projects and initiatives that are already in place in different regions of the Alps.
As explained by Sara Stemberger, researcher in the Sustainable Territories area of the Center, one of the main goals of the project is the development of a map and a platform that should gather in a single virtual place all information regarding the projects and technologies in the Alpine region related to hydrogen.
Ilaria Alberti, Knowledge Manager at the Center SE, underlined the need to show the platform and the results achieved during the Mid-term Conference expected for October 2024, in Trento.
The project meeting continued on October 4, with a roundtable organised by Agenzia CasaClima which stimulated high interest and saw the participation of numerous stakeholders. The event concluded with the site visit to MPREIS in Völs, with its electrolyzer and hydrogen refueling station for logistic trucks installed within the Demo4Grid project, presented by the Green Energy Center team.
