The conference, organized by the SEAFUEL project, will take place from March 30 to April 1.

The SEAFUEL project, Sustainable integration of renewable fuels in local transport systems, co-financed by the INTERREG Atlantic Area Programme 2014-2020, presents this 3-day programme dedicated to renewable fuels and other innovative technologies in the island of Tenerife. These events can be attended in person or online previous registration here.

The SEAFUEL days will start on March 30 with the Seminar “Hydrogen Islands, opportunities and challenges” of the Triple Hydrogen Alliance. This seminar aims at showcasing the importance of H2 on the clean energy transition linked to sustainable tourism. It will focus on different green H2 production technologies on island territories.

The seminar will take place at the Cleopatra Palace Hotel from 10:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. More information about the agenda and the speakers here.

On March 31, SEAFUEL will present the SEAFUEL pilot plant, the first hydrogen refueling station installed in the Canary Islands. The presentation will include the virtual tour, now available to learn how this installation works. The event will be completed with a tour to other ITER facilities. The event will take place at the facilities of the Institute of Technology and Renewable Energies from 10:30 – 12:30. 

The SEAFUEL days will end on April 1 with the symposium SOLAR2CHEM X SEAFUEL.

This symposium will provide an overview of innovative technologies for the production of green hydrogen, focusing on the direct use of solar energy. The event will take place at the Cleopatra Palace Hotel, from 9:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
