Panel Discussion
  • Assessing the obstacles to Green Hydrogen becoming bankable; what CAPEX costs increases might we see in the near future?
  • Behind the scenes insight into what banks want to see, and their views of challenges such as counterparty risk, country risk, energy prices, and technology risk
