The project, promoted by FVCMS/VSF and coordinated by the Veneto Region, aims to photograph the current competences of the hydrogen value chain in Veneto, segmented with respect to the activities of upstream operators (manufacturers), midstream (distribution and storage) and downstream (end uses). This mapping also aims to explore the potential demand for this energy carrier, and therefore the prospects for sectoral development, in Veneto. The analysis of the data collected is intended to be a supporting element on which to hypothesize the creation of a hydrogen and alternative energies pole in Marghera, capable of generating positive effects on the entire regional territory. The analysis of the data collected is intended to be a supporting element on which to hypothesize the creation of a hydrogen and alternative energies pole in Marghera, capable of generating positive effects on the entire regional territory.
The mapping intends:
- to identify the technical and industrial skills of the hydrogen value chain (production, storage, conversion and transport) and any gaps;
- to census organizations operating in the hydrogen supply chain or that are interested in exploring its strategic and operational impacts;
- to quantify current and future hydrogen demand;
- to know ongoing or planned projects and financial resources allocated or not made available.
The survey is aimed at Venetian companies, called to help make Venice and Veneto an attractive hub of the hydrogen supply chain, sharing skills, projects and needs, by filling out an online questionnaire.
Compiling the survey takes about 30 minutes.
The questions are mainly of a technical nature, their answer requires a knowledge of the energy resources consumed by the company and/or its sustainability and innovation strategies.
At the end of the analysis, each mapper will receive a copy of the final report.
The objective of the conference is to present the results of the “Mapping of the competences and the demand of hydrogen in Veneto”carried out with the coordination of the Veneto Region and the technical support of Boston Consulting Group, and stimulate the dialogue between public and private actors to activate projects that can develop a hydrogen supply chain in Veneto showing the strategic opportunities brought by the use of the same carrier.
The morning session will be dedicated to the presentation of the report and the discussion of the opportunities, to the regulatory and technological barriers of the Veneto hydrogen supply chain, concluding with a speech on the Polo di Marghera. During the afternoon session there will be a discussion on the possibilities of European and international cooperation and will be presented case studies of Venetian companies already operating in the sector.
