Panel discussion – Is (clean) hydrogen the key to decarbonisation?

The next step of the global energy transition will be based on the hydrogen economy. 

Carbon emission targets in the European Union and other industrialised countries will require massive scaling-up and acceleration of renewable hydrogen production and imports – already 20 million tons will be needed in Europe by 2030 to fast forward the energy transition decarbonisation. The potential of carbon capture enabled hydrogen to reduce emissions is gaining traction, but the viability of the technologies is still to be proven to scale.

  • State of the market in UK and Europe: where is demand coming from and what is the expected growth? Incentives and regulatory support at national and supernational level
  • Bankability and scalability of green hydrogen projects: how competitive is hydrogen in the current energy market?
  • Green hydrogen (from offshore wind farms) as an export product – potential for growth, cost, coupling and grid connection issues, route to market and peak time management
  • Investment potential for mass adoption (including transport and heating): is the technology ready? The role of R&D
  • Financing the hydrogen supply chain: why is equity raised and not debt? With an increase in capital raised, are lenders ready to get more involved in the market?
