Summit 2020

The ‘Hydrogen Economy’ has been talked about, invested in and debated for over 20 years, but only now is that cause being truly recognised for the role it has in a low carbon future.

Hydrogen has the potential to be the cornerstone of the energy transition, and momentum gathers in this important space every day. At the same time, the notion of the hydrogen economy itself continues to be redefined.

While the drive to phase out the traditional internal combustion engine for hydrogen mobility was the original focus, hydrogen and energy storage have evolved alongside automotive applications and there is an increasing realisation that hydrogen has the power to decarbonise so many industries and walks of life. In fact, it’s thought that most of the value creation in a hydrogen economy would occur in advanced industries.

To achieve this hydrogen vision, companies across the value chain will need to step up their efforts in hydrogen production, infrastructure roll-out, and end-user adoption. There will also be many questions to be answered along the way, not least:

  • Where is the role of hydrogen being realised, and what have the early adopters experienced?
  • What will it take to empower hydrogen’s role in the energy transition?
  • With demand for feedstock rising, how do we meet this quickly and sustainably?
  • Where do we need to scale up to achieve the necessary benefits in cost and adoption?

Under the theme Realising Hydrogen’s Future Role – and Scaling Up, the Hydrogen Summit 2020 is dedicated to addressing these many-splintered topics within the hydrogen economy.

Powered by gasworld and introducing H2 View to the events stage, the Summit’s progressive agenda will deliver the experts and insights to drive debate and provide key ‘takeaways’ to help companies strategise their future role in the clean energy sector.

A dedicated H2 View forum will explore The Roadmap to a Hydrogen Economy. Chaired by H2 View Advisory Board Member Ravin Mirchandani (Mack Valves), the session will tackle the investment and infrastructure required for the hydrogen roadmap – as well as inspire delegates with inspirational stories from projects already realised.

Held from 7th-8th April 2020 at Sofitel Munich Bayerpost, the event will provide invaluable networking opportunities between hydrogen suppliers, end-users and equipment innovators alike.
