Green Hydrogen Policy Making

Green hydrogen has emerged as a viable solution to decarbonising hard-to-abate sectors and as a key enabler of the transition toward net-zero emissions.

The last two years have witnessed increased momentum for green hydrogen, with many countries worldwide implementing national hydrogen strategies or announcing their intentions to do so. Furthermore, some post-COVID-19 recovery packages have included measures to support green hydrogen. Investors and the private sector are also making strategic investments in green hydrogen and forming cross-sector partnerships to drive down costs and create more significant economies of scale for green hydrogen technologies. However, today the sector remains small and more actions are needed for it to make a significant contribution to the energy transition.

The Vienna Energy forum side event “Green hydrogen policy making” gathered public and private stakeholders to discuss key opportunities and challenges in scaling up green hydrogen, focusing on policies for the supply side of green hydrogen.

The event took place on Tuesday, 06 July at 16:00 CEST (Vienna time) / 18:00 GST (Abu Dhabi time).
