24/7 Zen Kick-off meeting


To launch the project, the 14 partners of the consortium met in Barcelona.

On the Greek side, the Bioeconomy and Environment Cluster of Western Macedonia (CluBE), the Centre for Research & Technology Hellas (CERTH), the Foundation for Research and Technology – Hellas (FORTH), the company EUNICE and the  National Natural Gas System Operator (DESFA) S.A. attended the meeting.

This consortium will develop and validate an ecosystem that can be efficiently scaled and replicated to multi-MW scale installations. Further knowledge on how to improve the performance of rSOC and make them more cost competitive will be generated. At the end of the project, new and viable scenarios to provide grid balancing and supply green hydrogen will be presented by means of a deep techno-economic analysis. By advancing rSOC towards commercial exploitation, the renewable hydrogen deployment required for a climate neutral Europe will be one step closer.
