Panel Discussion: The European Hydrogen Mix - 50 Shades of Green?

May/12/2022 - 04:00 pm

Messe München, Hall B2., Booth B2.550 The smarter E - Green Hydrogen Forum

This panel discussion will focus on which Hydrogen Mix takes to create a robust hydrogen economy. What does the Green Hydrogen Manifesto call for? How much import, how much domestic H2 is needed? How will the necessary infrastructure conversion and expansion work, and how will it interact with the electricity industry - physically but also in terms of price. Experts from the previous sessions will debate on the shades of the "Green" of Hydrogen and also answer challenging questions from the audience.


Green Hydrogen: Policy Enabled Market

May/11/2022 - 10:30 am

Messe München, Hall B2., Booth B2.550 The smarter E - Green Hydrogen Forum

The opening session is outlining the frame and set-up of the 3 day program and the speaker highlights. The economic efficiency of hydrogen and its significance for Germany and Europe will be discussed by Government bodies and industry associations. They share their visions and increasingly the concrete steps towards materialisation, and how the political support will enable the market. It will also be illustrated how hydrogen can increase the resilience of the energy system by reducing imports of fossil fuels and diversifying the supplier countries, and how to establish cooperation and joint infrastructure development with renewable energy rich countries.


Sectors & Applications for Fuel Cell Transportation and Mobility

May/13/2022 - 10:30 am

Messe München, Hall B2., Booth B2.550 The smarter E - Green Hydrogen Forum

The implementation of climate-friendly mobility in road transport with green hydrogen requires clear orientations for the actors along the entire value chain. What are the current challenges in the transport sector to ensure both the necessary contribution to climate protection and the security of supply for mobility? In the session "DWV: Fuel Cells Driving Transportation", participants will discuss possible framework conditions and market incentives to promote the strategic market introduction of fuel cell vehicles in road transport, including the necessary refuelling infrastructure. Diese Session wird zusammen mit dem DWV (Deutscher Wasserstoffverband) organisiert. (partly in English)
