In 2020, the EU released its Hydrogen Strategy for a climate-neutral Europe, highlighting the important role renewable and low-carbon hydrogen will play in decarbonizing industry, transport, power generation and buildings. The strategy envisions an open and competitive EU hydrogen market by 2030, with hydrogen comprising 13-14% of Europe’s energy mix by 2050.
In order to explore the road that can lead to these targets, this webinar will feature leading speakers from the European Commission, industry and think tanks. They will focus on questions such as: What supporting policy framework is required to scale up the hydrogen market? How can demand in end-use sectors be boosted, and what supply-side policies are needed to ensure the necessary hydrogen production volumes to meet demand? What regulatory framework is necessary to ensure a liquid and well-functioning hydrogen market, and what role can state aid play?
