The smarter E Europe — Green Hydrogen Conference
The expectations of hydrogen as an energy carrier are high: it is considered the key and “facilitator” for a climate-friendly economic system and is intended to promote decarbonisation in many important areas, from industrial processes to transport to the electricity and heating sector. These expectations can only be met if the hydrogen economy is consistently and closely connected with the renewable energy sector.
The makers of The smarter E Europe, the Innovation Hub for New Energy Solutions, provide the right stage for this. At the Green Hydrogen Conference the leading international players from both worlds will come together and exchange ideas.
