Hydrogen production from air and sunlight: a gamechanger for the Flemish industry?

From 2020 onwards we will have to accelerate our climate efforts, if we are to reach the targets by 2050. Hydrogen is a key element in the transition towards a climate neutral society. It connects electrical with chemical energy, it is an important chemical feedstock and a transportable energy vector. Where will the hydrogen come from? What role will the newly developed hydrogen panels play? How to make sure Flanders will benefit from this transition?

Dr. Jan Rongé is a bioscience engineer and FWO postdoctoral fellow in the team of prof. Johan Martens. He helped lay the foundation for the development of hydrogen panels, nearly 10 years ago.
