EU GCC Clean Energy Technology Network is organising a web discussion entitled "Hydrogen in the European Green Deal, a new vector for international cooperation". The discussion will take place on Thursday 18 June 2020 at 11.00 CET.
The Green Deal is the flagship economic program of the European Commission, which aims to delink emissions from economic development. A major part of the Green Deal is to decarbonize Europe’s energy system by 2050, which implies maximum green electrification and a substantial role for low-carbon hydrogen. There is growing recognition that Europe will not be able to generate all required green electrons and molecules in Europe itself, but will have to import a large share. Regions that have favorable conditions to produce cost-effective hydrogen and hydrogen derivatives are North Africa and the Gulf.
The webinar will elaborate on the intraregional cooperation mechanisms that could drive the development of hydrogen projects in regions that could become potential suppliers of green fuels to Europe. The webinar will discuss the market, timelines, pathways, technology and technology transfer, finance and roadmaps.
