[IMPACT LIVE] Bolstering a Pipeline-based Hydrogen Future for Europe
Date & Time: 10:00 - 11:50, CET, Feb 21 Tuesday
Format: Virtual Conference
The success of a climate-neutral Europe by 2050 and that of renewable hydrogen will depend on a mature inter-regional hydrogen infrastructure in place. While integrating substantial volumes of green hydrogen into the system and connecting regions of supply and demand has been identified as a key approach, the most optimum pathways of delivery have yet to be defined, along with policy support, development of a regulated hydrogen market and offtake scaling up.
This webinar aims to explore that future form of a high-performing EU hydrogen network by examining the current one and possible evolvement coupled with hydrogen corridors and various types of trading partnerships. The virtual session is also part of the content line of Europe's largest and most influential green hydrogen event: Connecting Green Hydrogen Europe 2023.
