Panel Discussion
  • What are the key regulation and incentives on the horizon that will shape and stimulate the hydrogen market?
  • How will the recent RED II changes effect project development and planning
  • Debating certificates of origin – will these prove key to defining what is green hydrogen and what isn’t, will they be considered tradable assets and how will that market develop?
  • How will the Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism affect the market? Will this drive more developers outside of the EU to produce green hydrogen?
  • Are carbon tax policies the answer to making green hydrogen competitive? And how might they create new income sources in trading carbon credits?

Presentation
  • How Green Hydrogen will help Portugal achieve ambitious decarbonisation targets for 2030: a 55% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and a 47% share of renewables in gross final energy consumption
  • A behind the scenes look at the Portuguese hydrogen roadmap as Portugal aims to deploy 2 to 2,5 GW of capacity to produce hydrogen, inject 10% to 15% of hydrogen into the natural gas grid and build 50 to 100 hydrogen refuelling stations with an investment of around 7 to 9 billion euros
  • Highlighting the biggest current and future projects in Portugal for financiers and utilities to identify investable propositions

  • In a dramatically changed energy market environment, the driving forces to develop Hydrogen projects have changed and become even stronger
  • Increased renewable hydrogen competitiveness with fossil fuel based alternatives has fostered the shorter term demand in more applications
  • Huge acceleration on RES deployment and a level playing field for SMEs is required to achieve the ambitious volume targets by RePowerEU

Panel Discussion

Launched in 2020 with the convening support of the UN’s High-Level Climate Action Champions and RMI, the Green Hydrogen Catapult is a coalition of 13 market leaders who have committed to the largest GW-scale green hydrogen and green ammonia projects to date, collectively aiming to deploy 45 GW by 2027.

In this panel, industry first movers discuss the nexus of technological innovation, market forces and policy needed to rapidly accelerate this crucial low carbon pathway for heavy industry and transport.

The panel will assess the state of play of green hydrogen, ammonia and methanol, including supply volumes and timelines for Europe, and what to expect for key demand sectors like steel, shipping and fertilizers in the short- and medium-term.

Panel Discussion
  • How industrial clusters can be used to aggregate demand, to achieve a higher volume of offtake and allow green hydrogen to compete financially.
  • Examining the benefits of sector coupling - how industrial or chemical offtakers can be integrated with mobility, maritime, or aviation.
  • How can developers help facilitate and get involved in industrial clusters? Are there cost benefits for developers saving on land charges and transportation of hydrogen?
