A DEEP DIVE INTO HYDROGEN POLICY FROM:

HYDROGEN EUROPE

SPAIN

THE NETHERLANDS

 

• Overview of Hydrogen policies across Europe and the key countries who are leading the development of the market
• How do European nations create a financially viable Green Hydrogen market?
• How can policymakers incentivise Green Hydrogen to support long term development of an independently funded
economy?
• Implications for financiers and utilities – where are the investable propositions?

Panel Discussion

As Green Hydrogen costs come down and it becomes a mature industry, countries may start looking to countries with high numbers of renewables and land mass, who are naturally suited to producing en-mass, to import hydrogen from. In this session we look at the complexities of developing an international export market.

• Examining how countries looking to develop large amounts of cheap hydrogen such as Spain, Portugal, Australia
and Scotland can look to develop an export market
• Understanding the size of financial opportunities in global vs regional markets
• Overcoming the lack of standardisation in regulation, technology and definitions of green hydrogen which might hinder the development of a global export market

Panel Discussion

Offtaker demand is key to developing a market for Green Hydrogen to survive without subsidies. Green Hydrogen’s current high cost makes it economically unviable compared to other sources of energy, however carbon taxes could help to create long term price parity and bridge that gap until Green hydrogen costs come down. In this session we will examine how carbon taxes have been implemented.

• Looking at the timelines required for carbon taxes to overcome the price gap between Grey and Green hydrogen,
and how they can be shortened
• Outlining planned and existing carbon taxation schemes, and their successes, and limitations
• How emissions trading could offer alternative income for developers looking to collocated hydrogen with their
projects

Panel Discussion

As the world starts to look towards recovery post COVID-19 and building back a greener economy we will assess where the Green Hydrogen industry is now, how much it has been impacted by the pandemic, and how availability of funding might change the development of Hydrogen projects.

• Can the political agenda be steered toward green hydrogen and away from grey or blue? Should governments be looking at the green hydrogen route now, or use blue as part of their strategy?
• For how long will subsidies be required to support the industry, and how can we build a market not reliant on subsidies to survive?
• How investors are going to help meet the challenge of deploying and estimated additional 120GW of new wind and solar to power European hydrogen ambitions
