EUSEW 2021: The key role of European regions in kick-starting and advancing the clean hydrogen economy

The increasing importance of clean hydrogen in the energy mix provides opportunities and raises as much if not more questions. The entire clean hydrogen value chain can support sustainable regional development, increase growth and provide long-term employment. The speakers and panellists taking part in this event have been involved from multiple angles in either kick-starting the use of hydrogen or expanding their hydrogen activities towards a true budding hydrogen economy. The speakers and panellists will share their experience and views with the audience in developing a hydrogen economy.
