About the event

More than ever energy policy is security policy. Renewable hydrogen has emerged as a key solution to reduce Europe’s dependence on fossil natural gas and oil imports, build a stronger European economy and meet the climate goals. But how do we accelerate the scaling up of renewable hydrogen and turn a buzzword into reality? The European Commission has proposed ambitious targets for the fast and large-scale uptake of renewable hydrogen and derived e-fuels in hard-to-electrify industry and transport. Top CEOs and policymakers will discuss the importance of these targets to create a European market for renewable hydrogen, how it will help Europe secure first-mover advantage in the markets of tomorrow, disrupting the status-quo on a global scale, and what it will take to deliver these ambitious targets at least cost. Join us at the Steigenberger Wiltcher’s Hotel  in Brussels on May 31, 2022, from 2pm onwards, for an exclusive insight from those who are building the energy landscape and economy of tomorrow.   The event will be followed by a high level cocktail reception from 5:30pm.

Energy Security: ramping up renewable hydrogen in Europe
More than ever energy policy is security policy. Building Europe’s energy independence is crucial to a strong economy. Renewable hydrogen has emerged as a key solution to meet the climate goals but also to reduce Europe’s dependence on fossil natural gas and oil imports. Now is the time to double down on the action and investment required. What policies and investment framework does Europe need to turn ambition into action, scale up as fast as needed and unleash the full power of renewable hydrogen in Europe?
