Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The CEM Hydrogen Initiative (H2I), the MI Clean Hydrogen Mission (CHM) and the Hydrogen TCP bring together government, industry, innovators and thought champions to discuss opportunities to accelerate the deployment of clean hydrogen. The event will address the biggest challenges facing the rapid deployment of clean hydrogen, while leveraging the opportunities that the emerging energy geopolitics create for clean hydrogen. The IEA’s Global Hydrogen Review 2022 and the CHM Action Plan will be presented to set the scene for panel discussions. A high-level panel will make a call for action to strengthen international cooperation as a key lever to accelerate deployment and will identify opportunities to enhance cooperation between H2I and CHM. A second panel with industry, innovators and participation from the audience will identify opportunities and actions to achieve cost reductions through innovation and demonstration. The event will include the ceremony of the first Hydrogen TCP Award of Excellence
