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
