Hydrogen - Getting the Green Light, Driving Europe’s Green Recovery

Becoming the world’s first climate-neutral continent by 2050 is a once in a lifetime opportunity for the EU's economy and society. For the EU and UK to reach their target of climate neutrality, economies must decarbonise their energy systems to achieve "net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050”.

GenComm's European partners & Guest Speakers will consider hydrogen in this context, and as the catalyst for driving Europe's green recovery. They will also consider the hurdles that must be overcome for Hydrogen to become a viable and accessible energy source for all.
