The European Union is stepping up its uptake of renewable hydrogen in its energy mix. In line with the REPowerEU plan, the EU should consume 20 million tonnes of renewable hydrogen by 2030, half of which should be imported. For the EU, partnering with like-minded countries on hydrogen such as Canada may generate a virtuous and mutually beneficial cooperation to replace fuels and fossil-based hydrogen for sectors that are heard to electrify or otherwise defossilise.

Canada aims to position itself amongst the top three largest producers of renewable and low-carbon hydrogen globally, and to export significant amounts of hydrogen. In this context, meetings between the EU and Canada are held to enhance the dialogues on the production and trade of hydrogen. A first virtual webinar, organised by the PtX Hub in collaboration with the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), took place on 28 April 2022.

This second dialogue will focus on how to build a sustainable supply chain of renewable and low-carbon hydrogen from Canada to the EU, notably in relation to transportation and demand, and will count with the participation of Canadian and European Port Organisations and private sector representatives. Ultimately, this event aims at generating wider public interest, increasing mutual understanding and gaining clarity on the possible way forward.

Participation is free and open to all.
