On behalf of SINTEF and the European research project ELEGANCY, Chris Davies MEP hosted a luncheon discussion on Wednesday 29 January in the European Parliament.
To reach the net zero emission goal, Europe needs to introduce hydrogen (H2) as a low-carbon fuel for heating, cooling, transport and industrial processes.
Reforming natural gas for H2 production requires eliminating CO2 emissions, providing economic drivers needed to fast-track commercial CCS deployment.
This event presented key findings and recommendations on technology, markets, necessary policies and regulatory requirements.
