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?
