GenComm Spring ’21 Series of H₂ Webinars; #4: 18th May 2021


Topic: Hydrogen Demand, Use and Future Production 

18th May 2021 at 10:00 BST/11:00 CET 

Hydrogen is now a fundamental pillar of energy policy of the EU as it transitions to a net zero future. It is a key component of the EU Strategy for Energy System Integration and has been included in the TEN-E framework. To unlock hydrogen’s benefits the EU hydrogen strategy5 targets 6 GW of electrolyser by 2024 and 40 GW by 2040, with heavy-duty transport identified as a key sector.

Globally, Governments are recognising the hydrogen opportunity and need for government support and have implemented hydrogen strategies whilst others are developing ambitious hydrogen plans.

Hydrogen is the catalyst driving Europe’s energy transition. Optimising this journey delivering SMARTH2 through valorisation of the hydrogen supply chain, production, storage and use to meet future need is key to creating a successful hydrogen Europe.

Webinar #4 in the GenComm SMARTH2 series will examine how countries are scaling up and optimising production from additional green energy resources to meet current demand and opening new avenues of generation for utilisation.
