About the summer school
The transition towards renewable energy sources, such as solar and wind, requires the development of large-scale energy storage systems to balance out the renewable energy production and demand. Storing renewable energy in the form of hydrogen is widely seen as a promising solution because of its high energy content and clean combustion products. However, due to hydrogen’s low density, large storage volumes will be required which exceed the capacity of surface-based storage facilities. Subsurface reservoirs such as gas fields, aquifers and solution-mined salt caverns are the only feasible option that can provide the large storage volumes required. This gives underground hydrogen storage (UHS) the potential to become a key technology in the energy transition.
So far, the 2nd International Summer School on UHS is supported by our partners:
- EBN (Energie Beheer Nederland)
- Energi Simulation
- DELPHI Consortium
- NWO DeepNL
- Delft Subsurface Storage Theme
The summer course will be hybrid, and will cover many aspects of the UHS including:
- Successful experiences and under development sites (commeercial and pilot) for UHS
- Policy, Regulating & Licensing of UHS
- Techno-economics of UHS
- Geo-Technical-Feasibility of UHS:
- Micro-biology & Geo-chemistry
- Geomechanics & Geology
- Characterization, Modeling, Imaging & Monitoring
- (selected) Presentations by the attendees (Poster + 2min Pitch)
Lectures will be given by a broad range of speakers including scientists, industrial experts, policy making staff and EU funding agencies.
The course is developed for a broad audience who would like to learn more about the various aspects of UHS, with a specific focus on students and young researchers. During the course, the attendees should expect lectures from international experts, practical and group exercises, as well as site visits and cultural and social activities. In addition, each attendee is given the opportunity to present their research during a poster session.
All attendants will receive a certificate of attendance.
