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... Read more
The EU Sustainable Energy Week (EUSEW) is a month-long series of activities to build a secure energy future for Europe. It brings together public authorities, private companies, NGOs and consumers to promote initiatives to save energy and move towards renewables for clean, secure and efficient power. Launched in 2006 by the European Commission, the EUSEW was organised by the Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) until 2021, and from 2021 will be organised by the...
