What role will hydrogen play in Europe's decarbonisation?
Europe will consume a volume of hydrogen until 2050 and beyond. In some scenarios, hydrogen will develop into a major energy carrier that is produced and imported in large quantities and used across different sectors. In any scenario, strict climate targets require that the production of hydrogen is not linked to the emission of greenhouse gases. In practice, this is challenging to formulate because hydrogen can be produced in very different ways, with different fuels, and in different places.
In this event, we will discuss the following key questions: can Europe ensure that hydrogen contributes to Europe’s decarbonisation? How can hydrogen contribute to it? And finally, what are the different production methods that could enable this?

Europe’s gas supply security could more effectively be safeguarded by ensuring that unused alternatives are maintained.
How can the European Union increase green public investment while consolidating budget deficits?
The ultimate answer to the question on whether climate change can be tackled without ditching economic growth depends on our willingness to step up climate action massively.
Who should bear more and who less of the burden achieving climate policy goals?
