This event explores the role and potential of hydrogen in the transition to a low carbon economy. Angela Wilkinson presents World Energy Council insights on the potential of hydrogen for decarbonising hard-to-abate sectors and for supporting the integration of renewables and storage. Alexandru Floristean argues that hydrogen is no longer a research topic, but a solution for the future. He shows how hydrogen technologies are actually being deployed on the ground now to respond to key energy, climate and environmental challenges.
