Everywh2ere hosts a series of online exchanges 1024 683 admin

This June, EVERYWH2ERE partners, together with local authorities part of the project’s regions and city interest group will organise a series of informal online exchanges and presentations to advance local hydrogen agendas.

The group is bringing together local and regional authorities interested in exploring hydrogen solutions to reduce air pollution and noise in their city. Discussions will focus on the role and potential of hydrogen in promoting local low-emission development, also in light of the current COVID-19 crisis.

During the online exchange, partners will deep dive with group members into several key aspects for integrating hydrogen solutions into their planning, such as the possible role of hydrogen in the sustainable energy mix, hydrogen in the urban context, opportunities for local authorities related to national hydrogen strategies, and how to use hydrogen for a more sustainable building and construction sector.

The group is open for all local authorities who would like to network with peers on developing, advancing and promoting their local hydrogen agenda, or wish to host one of the portable, zero-emission, zero-noise hydrogen fuel cell generators developed by EVERYWH2ERE to replace diesel generators for energising temporary events, such as construction sites, festivals, concerts, and harbours.

Authorities and stakeholders who are interested to join, can find more information on how to become a part of the EVERYWH2ERE regions and cities interest group here, or contact arthur.hinsch@iclei.org.

Debating the film industry sustainability at the Berlinale Film Festival 830 553 admin

Everywh2ere Project will participate at the European Film Market (EFM) and the Berlinale Film Festival with the objective to debate the industry’s skills, tools and models for sustainability.

“If we are serious about climate mitigation, the entertainment industry (like every industry)  must be ready to make radical changes”, the EFM states. On Sunday 23rd February, Jacob Bilabel, founder of the Green Music Initiative and partner of the Everywh2ere project will participate in several sessions of “Sustainability at EFM”.

These sessions are talks and discussions to chart progress made so far and develop industry calls to action: From the major milestones already achieved in sustainable production and necessary next steps, to the mammoth but not impossible task of greening the festival circuit, to confronting the shocking environmental impact of audiovisual streaming platforms, and beginning to imagine an entirely new creative ecosystem, whose environmental, social, financial and cultural sustainability could be supported by low carbon and smart technologies. In this framework hydrogen technologies and our EVERYWH2ERE gensets can support film industry decarbonization providing low emissions and low noise power to film sets and other temporary usage.

Hydrogen As Key To Our Clean Energy Future?

Hydrogen As Key To Our Clean Energy Future? 603 600 admin

A music festival has the same energy need as a small city over the weekend. Because missing grid connection, no technical infrastructure and very little uptake of digital smart metering systems, this energy is mostly produced very inefficiently by gasoline generators on site. With more than 500 big festivals and more than 5000 bigger events alone in Germany, this causes a lot of unnecessary stress on the environment. But there are alternatives. European cities can become living labs for the demonstration of Fuel Cell and Hydrogen (FCH) technologies, which produce clean renewable energy with no CO2 or noise emissions at all. Meet the trailblazers paving the way for others to follow. Learn about visions, challenges and pitfalls on our way to a renewable future.
