The NortH2 project aims to develop 10 GW Offshore wind hydrogen. 3-4 GW electrolyzer capacity should be installed in Eemshaven by 2030, after which some 6-7 GW offshore wind capacity, plus possibly also electrolyser capacity offshore, will be developed up to 2040. Offshore wind electricity production with electricity transport to the coast is now a proven development in line with the market, but that does not apply to offshore wind hydrogen development. It is not clear how the development of offshore wind hydrogen will develop technically and economically, certainly also in combination with the development of offshore wind electricity. This not only concerns offshore production, but also offshore transport, storage, landing and onshore transport according to demand. The interrelations and dependencies of these parts in the value chain will be investigated, too, as the system
emergence is shaped not only by the technology but also by the interactions of stakeholders, whereby none of them being in a position to control the whole system.
The focus is on the following tasks:
- Techno-economic assessments for the offshore technologies
- Investigation of onshore landing sites for hydrogen and electricity as a function of the demand and the system boundary
- Elaboration of system levelized cost of electricity and hydrogen across the North Sea delivered at selected landing sites.
- Investigation of the role of demand hubs in creating demand for green hydrogen from the North See
- 2050 Scenario/roadmap development for North Sea offshore wind electricity-hydrogen production.
We are looking for candidates who:
- Have a proven background in an engineering or in a science domain demonstrated by a PhD degree in, for example, Complex Systems Engineering and Management, Chemical Engineering, Electrical or Mechanical Engineering, or Physics, etc.;
- Have the ability and motivation to do research on hydrogen-based economy
- Have the affinity with industry and energy transition problems;
- Have organizational skills to cooperate effectively with staff and concortium partners of North H2programme:
- Have excellent communication and soft skills;
- Are open minded and team players.
