Clean hydrogen is a game changer in the global energy industry by storing renewables, complementing electrification, addressing climate challenge, and having the potential to become a multi-trillion-dollar global market. India, Saudi Arabia, and Finland have all been identified as clean hydrogen hotspots due to their tremendous renewable energy capacities and technological know-how.

Ministerial representatives of these three trailblazers will take the stage in this side event and explain the content and ambitions of their national hydrogen strategies.

The audience will also learn from high-level industry experts during the panel discussion which measures are needed for the creation of a viable global hydrogen market and how hydrogen will contribute to the individual and collective net-zero targets and sustainable economic growth.

In the end the audience has the chance to share their views and pose questions to the experts in the Q&A session. We are expecting truly global and forward-looking discussions!
