OPENING KEYNOTE - SEIZE THE MOMENT
Hydrogen is enjoying unprecedented momentum. It accounts for just 4% of final energy use today and the production of green hydrogen is cumbersome and expensive. This does not discourage many companies from looking into hydrogen as a cleaner energy source. What will it take to make hydrogen viable? - Are we witnessing a new gold rush?

OPENING KEYNOTE - REGULATORY LANDSCAPE
How can the EU build a competitive hydrogen market as fast as possible? How are governments going to stimulate investment in technology development to drive down prices and what regulations will be in place? Updates on the Hydrogen and Decarbonised Gas Market Package
  • Fostering a sustainable and interconnected European hydrogen market

BIRD’S EYE VIEW PANEL DISCUSSION Chicken and egg dilemma. Enabling the hydrogen economy - regulations, prices and supply & demand perspectives
How is the market of power generation going to change over the next 20 years to enable an easy supply of electricity to make hydrogen and meet net-zero? How can we build up the production and demand curves and establish a full value chain? Where are the potential right conditions for hydrogen to take off?

  • How can we build up the production and demand curves and establish a full value chain?
  • Where are the potential right conditions for hydrogen to take off?
  • Which are the most important incentives for the deployment of scale throughout business models? For example, we have ambitious hydrogen targets, but what tools will allow us to achieve them?
  • When will green hydrogen be price competitive?

PANEL DISCUSSION WITH ELECTROLYSER PRODUCERS The brave new world of Electrolysers - where the future lies?
Current technology and infrastructure limitations make green hydrogen production roughly 10 times as expensive as natural gas production. And electrolysers stand in the heart of the production - it can't go without them and, with them, can move in any possible direction. Let's talk about innovative projects that we have on the market now, production and development perspectives and price volatility.
  • How can we lower the high electricity costs to allow efficient hydrogen production?
  • How are electrolyser manufacturers affected by current supply chain shortages?
  • How can we significantly scale up hydrogen production?
  • How can electrolyser companies ensure that their green footprint is as low as possible and help others in the value chain avoid the hydrogen slip?
  • Will the future hydrogen economy be centralised or decentralised?
