Dr. Emmanuel STAMATAKIS

He holds a PhD in Chemical Engineering and a Master in Production Management Systems. Currently he holds a Research Position at the Institute of GeoEnergy (IG) of the Foundation for Research and Technology - Hellas (FORTH) on Environment & Renewable fuels and he is the Head of Innovation & Industrialization at CYRUS S.A., a spin-off company of NCSR DEMOKRITOS which produces innovative thermal hydrogen compressors. In the past he has been working as a Research Collaborator for various Research Centers in Greece and abroad for over 20 years in the fields of Petroleum Research, Renewable Energy, Hydrogen Technology and Environmental Protection.

He has been acting as the main liaison between the industry and the research community on various hydrogen energy & environmental issues during his career, having fulfilled a large number of industrial research programs through his active participation in all stages, from the preparation and submission of the proposal until the successful completion of the project, having delivered numerous industrial technical reports. Involved as a research scientist in various National & International environmental & hydrogen energy projects such as: TRIĒRĒS – Towards the development of a hydrogen valley demonstrating applications in an integrated ecosystem in Greece (FORTH, Greece); TWINN2SET – Twinning to Sustainable Energy Transition (FORTH, Greece); SHIP-FC - Piloting Multi MW Ammonia Ship Fuel Cells (NCSRD, Greece); DEMO4GRID – Demonstration of 4MW Pressurized Alkaline Electrolyser for Grid Balancing Services (DBC, Greece); PERL - Enhancing the research potential of the NCSRD Environmental Research Laboratory (NCSRD, Greece); STORIES – Addressing barriers to Storage technologies for increasing the penetration of Intermittent Energy Sources (CRES, Greece); ENGINE - Enhanced Geothermal Innovative Network for Europe (NCSRD, Greece); KMBSCALE for the study of calcite scale formation in production wells using nuclear techniques (IFE, Norway); HDR-geo for the simulation of scale deposition in geothermal installations (IFE, Norway); ARISSTON for the experimental investigation of scaling in core samples using radioactive tracers (IFE, Norway). Significant experience in project management and project proposal preparation & evaluation.

Ambassador of Hydrogen Europe in Crete for the promotion of Hydrogen Technologies & Member of the Hydrogen Strategy Committee of the Ministry of Environment & Energy.
