ITER and AIET will lead a virtual event to bring SEAFUEL to the public. 



Within the framework of the Weeks of Science and Innovation in the Canary Islands 2020 and the European Quality Week, the SEAFUEL project will present the virtual event “SEAFUEL – Generating Hydrogen” organized by the Tenerife Energy Agency (AIET) and the Institute of Technology and of Renewable Energies (ITER).

This virtual event will be held on November 13 at 11 hours and aims to showcase this technology and bring the project to the public. How does it work? How is hydrogen generated? What is green hydrogen? How does it apply to transportation? These are some of the issues that will be targeted during the virtual event involving some of the technicians working in the project.

To participate in this event please send an email with the subject line “SEAFUEL Event – SSCC” to

Participants will be able to know the hydrogen generation procedure, while knowing and listening to the technicians working on the SEAFUEL project (, which aims to demonstrate the feasibility of powering local transport networks using sustainable fuels produced through renewable sources and seawater, without net carbon footprint, following the framework of the flagship initiative “A Europe that uses resources effectively”.

The Weeks of Science and Innovation in the Canary Islands 2020 held from 4 to 29 November 2020 are an initiative of the Ministry of Economy, Knowledge and Employment of the Government of the Canary Islands, through the Canarian Agency for Research, Innovation and Information Society (ACIISI). All information about the activities is available at: and the European Quality Week in Tenerife is an initiative coordinated by the Insular Center for Quality and Responsible Consumption belonging to the Area of Employment, Economic Development and External Action of the Cabildo de Tenerife. This edition will be held under the theme “Quality as a competitive advantage in an uncertain environment” the Week will highlight the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDA), which seek to achieve goals that aim to improve the world in which we live, such as promoting sustainable production and consumption or ensuring the protection of our planet. All activity information is available at:
