    Theme 1 : Hydrogen Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and Techno Economic Analysis (TEA)

    Hydrogen, especially clean hydrogen, is a common foundation for decarbonization across all sectors. This session will focus on the hydrogen LCA and TEA, with presentations on the determinants and modelling options of hydrogen infrastructures, the economics of clean hydrogen production, TEA of clean hydrogen and ammonia supply chains, etc.

    Theme2Renewable Energy Generation and Integration

    For a large-scale introduction of renewable energy, the power system should be flexible and stable against uncertainty and fluctuation. This session will focus on renewable energy generation and integration, with presentations on floating photovoltaics, offshore wind power generation, the transformation of the energy grid, IoT for integrating renewable energy, etc.
