To reach the net zero emission goal, Europe needs to introduce hydrogen as a low-carbon fuel for heating, cooling, transport and industrial processes. Reforming natural gas for hydrogen production requires eliminating CO2 emissions, providing economic drivers needed to fast-track commercial CCS deployment.
The aim of this event is to bring together the right knowledge and stakeholders to decarbonize Europe's energy system. Participants will hear the key project findings and recommendations on technology, markets, necessary policies and regulatory requirements. The EU Commission will give an update on the European Green Deal and Forschungszentrum Jülich will give an introduction to the German Hydrogen Strategy.
