One year review: Europe’s 6 GW by 2024 Green Hydrogen target
Last year, the EU bet big on green hydrogen, with a 6 GW by 2024 and a 40 GW by 2030 electrolyser capacity target. Over a year later, is Europe on track? Policymakers, energy producers, and key stakeholders detail success stories, challenges, and plans going forward.

Shirley Oliveira Vice President - Hydrogen & CCUS BP
International Collaboration in R&D to Unlock Hydrogen Potential
Throughout the world, governments and institutions are pouring resources not only into the production of hydrogen and surrounding infrastructure, but also into research and development to fulfil the full potential of hydrogen. In this session, the IEA TCP demonstrate the importance of investing in R&D and how R&D challenges can be supported by international cooperation.
Paul Lucchese Chair Hydrogen TCP
Scaling-up Hydrogen - the Race to the Cheapest Green Hydrogen
There is a global race to get green hydrogen production costs down by around two thirds to $2.00 per kg, with varying timelines and ambitions to reach this price. To achieve this price, production must be scaled up quickly.
Thomas Malango Hydrogen Director Repsol
Belén Linares Corell Innovation Director Acciona Energy
Ana Quelhas Managing Director - Hydrogen EDPR
The Geopolitical Risks to the Hydrogen Economy
45 countries across the globe have been developing national hydrogen roadmaps and/or strategies, while more than 20 new international hydrogen institutions have been created. As corporate and government lobbying progresses, how is global policy actually translating into low-carbon hydrogen technology developments? For hydrogen to reshapes energy geopolitics by 2050, now is the time to understand how today’s stakeholders are writing the future.
Mikaa Mered Secretary general - Research chair on overseas territories Sciences Po
The Business Model for Hydrogen: Securing Finance, Off-take Agreements, and Sector Coupling
Will outside the box thinking be needed to realise the hydrogen economy? Experts discuss unlocking hydrogen project financing, the growing attention around sector coupling, forming off-take agreements and how new solutions, such as energy as a service, can shape the hydrogen economy.
Ivan Pavlovic Director - Senior Energy / Green & Sustainable Specialist Natixis
William Rowe CEO Octopus Hydrogen
Moderator: Cornelius Matthes CEO Dii Desert
In Conversation with EEX
Discussion with the CSO of EEX on hydrogen cost trends and their role in the hydrogen economy.
Tobias Paulun Chief Strategy Officer EEX
Speaker Q&A and Roundtable #1 - Is Europe Leading the Global Hydrogen Economy?
Discussing Europe’s position in the global hydrogen race.
Roundtable #2 - Unlocking Hydrogen Capital
Allocation capital efficiently to scale-up production and meet critical infrastructure needs.
Day Two: December 3, 2021
Repurposing and Developing Transmission Infrastructure
Europe could devote 40,000 of natural gas pipelines to hydrogen by 2040 once production and imports of the alternative fuel take off, according to 23 leading grid operators from 21 countries across Europe. Uncover how this roadmap can be achieved cost-effectively and assess the possibilities of not only integrating hydrogen, but also biomethane and synthetic methane, to decarbonize Europe’s gas grid.
Antonio Martinez Renewables Gases & Services Director Enagas
Daniel Muthmann Head of Strategy and Policy Open Grid Europe
Moderator: Paddy Blewer Director of Public Affairs IGU
Ports and Hydrogen Hubs: Building the Import and Export Infrastructure
IRENA advocates industrial clusters in their report ‘Green Hydrogen Cost Reduction, Scaling Up Electrolysers’ to achieve scalability and build out supply chains. These clusters are already emerging across Europe, and this pattern shows no sign of slowing. Learn about Europe’s emerging hubs and their partnerships to produce and transport hydrogen across Europe and globally.

Alicia Eastman President InterContinental Energy
The Colours of Hydrogen: Analysis of Green, Blue, Turquoise, and Gray
Showcasing the colour make-up of the hydrogen economy in Europe, cost trends of each colour, and the pivot from carbon intensive to low carbon and zero-emission hydrogen.
Simon Ellis Head of Global Analytics ICIS
Hydrogen Revolution in the Oceans, Skies and on the Roads
The use of hydrogen as an energy carrier to power vehicles of all sizes and zero-emission aircraft is ongoing. But the road to widespread hydrogen vehicles, ships, and aircraft remains distant, how can those within these industries and beyond collaborate to decarbonize these sectors? And what is the roadmap for growth?
Juergen Guldner Vice President - Fuel Cell Technology and Vehicle Projects BMW Group
Maria Strandesen Director, Head of Future Fuels A.P. Moller - Maersk
Exploring the Use of Green Ammonia
Developing a green ammonia industry will be challenging. Production costs of green ammonia are up to four times as much as usual ammonia and many of the technologies are still in their infancy. So, will green ammonia be worth the effort? Explore the challenges and benefits of green ammonia and how ammonia could decarbonize fertilizers, shipping, and other applications.
Where to and Where Not to Apply Hydrogen
There is a long-standing debate between batteries and hydrogen for both light duty and heavy-duty transportation, while hydrogen use as a solution to decarbonize home heating is far from being wholly accepted. In Europe, some of the emerging biggest champions of green hydrogen are steelmakers and refineries. In this debate, we will explore which sectors will, and which sector will not, make-up the demand for hydrogen.
Benny Oeyen Executive Head Market Development Anglo American
Professor David Cabon Professor of Mechanical Engineering Cambridge University
Speaker Q&A and Roundtable – The Many Uses of Hydrogen
Debate on the applications of hydrogen, which sectors will make up the bulk of the demand?
