The H2Heat project, which aims to showcase the potential of converting green hydrogen (H2) for sustainable heating solutions, has started its first phase.
The H2HEAT project, starting in September is set to revolutionise the way we generate and utilise energy by converting heat into the commercial building’s heating and hot water systems, for example in one of the hospitals in Gran Canaria. This may reduce CO2 emissions by over fifty percent, significantly contributing to their sustainability goals. As the Canary Islands embrace locally-produced H2 from renewable energy sources, H2Heat’s impact is present throughout the regional economy.
The core of the project lies in the strategic partnership between the Canary Island Health Service (SCS) and coordinator PLOCAN. This alliance lays the groundwork for the entire project, driven by a shared commitment to renewable energy generation and hospital facility decarbonisation. Aligned with the ambitious ‘Health Zer0 net Emissions Strategy 2030’ of the Government of Canary Islands, this collaboration holds the potential to reshape energy practices within the healthcare sector. The H2Heat extends its reach as a contributor to the green H2 supply and value chains, by creating transformative innovations. Project consortium of 11 partners bring diverse expertise, ensure realisation of technical goals, reduce the total cost of ownership for consumers, and create replicable business models.
Beyond the tech: Engaging Stakeholders
As awareness is pivotal for success for any organisation, H2Heat takes a comprehensive approach. Industry, research, government, civil society and investors – aim to foster collaboration and co-creation. As the curtains rise on the H2Heats project’s kick-off, the promise of a greener, sustainable future takes centre stage. Through collaboration, innovation and strategic alignment, H2Heat stands as a testament for the capacity to reshape the energy landscape for the better.
Experience from past EU funded initiatives show that technological challenges are often not the primary concert when it comes to adopting green hydrogen (H2), in particular for heating and energy applications.
Instead, a lack of awareness among essential stakeholders poses a greater challenge. By identifying opportunities, fostering collaboration and understanding strategies required for large scale implementation can be challenging by the awareness gap.
With full recognition of the challenges, H2HEAT is strategically focused on engaging on the “Quadruple Helix of stakeholder” which encompass investors, civil societies, research institutions, governments and industry experts. By fostering collaboration, H2HEAT aims to bridge the gap between potential and realisation – ensuring the project’s impact on sustainability and green energy globally.
