Topic: Hydrogen economy development in the European dimension. Ways for mutually beneficial international cooperation

We continue a series of highly specialized professional discussions on the ways to develop the hydrogen economy in Ukraine, which is held by Energy Club together with the State Agency on Energy Efficiency and Energy Saving of Ukraine.

The new hydrogen industry must be built in a way to provide Ukraine with a competitive position on the world energy arena.

Discussion participants - representatives of government, business, science, education, international and expert community - will raise and outline all the issues of the new industry development, focusing on each stage of the chain: from hydrogen production to its consumption.

Issues for discussion:
  • hydrogen in the EU energy policy and the "REPowerEU" plan;
  • cooperation between the EU and Ukraine - when the first large-scale projects of Ukraine's export potential will appear, what needs to be done to implement them;
  • investments in hydrogen projects - sources of financing;
  • plans, scientific developments, pilot projects of different countries of the world;
  • equipment market for hydrogen projects - what to expect in the next 5 years.
