Virtual Conference - "One Step For Energy Transformation, A Huge Leap For Central And Eastern Europe (CEE): a Hydrogen Outlook on climate neutrality"

FRIDAY, 12 FEBRUARY 2021 | 10:00 -14:00 CET


Given the European Green Deal aim of climate-neutrality by 2050, there cannot be a full transition without the decarbonisation of the energy sector in Europe, which accounts for 75 % of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. In order to facilitate the technological development and upscaling of the use of hydrogen from renewable and low-carbon resources, the European Commission on adopted 'A hydrogen strategy for a climate-neutral Europe' on 8 July 2020. Hydrogen is perceived as the key enabler of the decarbonisation of the industrial processes and economic sectors, especially where the renewable electrification is not fully possible and other alternatives may yet not be feasible.

With the following programme of the panel discussion, we provide a view on the key developments from the CEE regional perspective. We would like to draw your attention to the dynamic and prospects for the energy transition accelerated by hydrogen in the Central and Eastern part of Europe.

The discussion will be hosted by Business & Science Poland (BSP) and the National Hydrogen Technology Platform Hungary (NHT). The event is kindly facilitated by form of a partnership between the Ministries of Energy and Climate (relevant for the energy transformation and the hydrogen policy) in V4 countries. The discussions will be moderated by Jorgo Chatzimarkakis, Secretary General of Hydrogen Europe.
