High levels of pollution and the threat of drastic climate change have created strong pressure to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Hydrogen can offer solutions in fields ranging from transport to energy storage, but is it really a technically and economically viable alternative to fossil fuel?
This conference will be an opportunity to listen to experts from universities, research centres and automotive companies who will unveil ways of using hydrogen that could result in new business opportunities. They will explore the technical challenges and solutions of H2/FCH deployment from the perspective of the whole ecosystem – production and distribution, mobility applications, industrial and energy use, and residential CHP.
The programme will include technical conferences as well as an exhibition and demos. Keynote speakers from companies & institutions like University of Birmingham, Engie, FClab, H2SYS, LIST, Hinicio and IZES have already confirmed their participation. A detailed programme can be seen below.
Targeting the Greater Region and beyond, this event is organised by the Luxembourg AutoMobility Cluster in collaboration with Autoregion and Campus Francorchamps.
The participation fee of the event is €50, please make a bank transfer before the event to following account.
