Event description
Launch of GenComm's Community Hydrogen Forum (CH2F)

About this Event

We welcome you to the Launch of GenComm's new Community Hydrogen Forum (CH2F), which is taking place on 21 October at Dublin City University's Alpha Campus.

A key output of the Interreg NorthWest Europe-funded GenComm project, this exciting new Community Hydrogen Forum (CH2F) will provide a platform for stakeholders, and communities throughout Europe, to collaborate and find out more about hydrogen and renewable energy development.

The forum will facilitate further understanding of hydrogen technologies, and how they can transform community access to low, or zero carbon, energy and mobility. It will provide a channel for sharing information, experience and best practice.

The CH2F is for everyone - including small communities, development agencies, energy cooperatives, government agencies, energy providers and educators.

At the Launch, and supporting the CH2F, you will hear about the development of a hydrogen Decision Support Tool (DST), which will allow CH2F members to explore the potential of renewable hydrogen in their community.
