Successful EU Energy Day at Expo 2020 focuses on hydrogen for the energy transition
High level officials, policy makers and industry representatives met on Sunday, 14th November at Expo 2020, for the EU Energy Day to discuss the ‘EU Green Deal and the role of hydrogen in the energy transition’. The hybrid event was organised by the European Commission and hosted in the Netherlands Pavilion at the Expo 2020 Dubai.
Attending the event, EU Commissioner for Energy Kadri Simson said:
To meet our targets, we cannot rely on localised green hydrogen production alone. We need to develop complex hydrogen ecosystems to bring affordable green hydrogen to the end-consumer. Here today we will see real examples of EU companies working on hydrogen projects with local businesses outside Europe. This is something we strongly support.
With two different sessions focussing on innovation and new business models, the event provided a forum for innovative cleantech companies to share with the international audience their breakthrough technologies, clean energy solutions, and their upcoming initiatives.
Other sessions centred around policies under the European Green Deal, focusing on the role of hydrogen for the energy transition pathway in the EU, as well as on international cooperation initiatives for technology transfer and trade, advancing the Paris Agreement’s objectives.
