IPFA Future Leaders Network Continental Europe

Hydrogen: Market Overview and Challenges in Belgium

With the EU targeting carbon neutrality by 2050, transitioning from existing energy infrastructure to sustainable solutions is urgent. Sustainable fuels and hydrogen in particular could play an important role for energy storage. Questions are however raised on hydrogen projects and their bankability. In order to facilitate and accelerate the energy transition, what can be done to help overcome these challenges and make projects viable?

Future leaders are invited to attend two keynote speeches and our roundtable discussions. Each table will be hosted by an established expert discussing his/her experiences and reflecting on relevant developments in the field.

On the back of the European Hydrogen Week 2024 in Brussels, this event brings together hydrogen experts from Europe and Belgium, sharing insights and strategies for the successful development of hydrogen projects in Belgium.
