Webinar: Moving electrolysers into the gigawatt scale

October 29, 13:30 – 16:30

We are pleased to invite you to a webinar organized together with the Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU) (under the Mission Innovation – Innovation Challenge Hydrogen and on behalf of the European Commission) on the challenge of moving the electrolysers technology to a gigawatt scale in the next decade.

The speakers will look at how the EU Hydrogen Strategy, that was published in July 2020, and the German Hydrogen Strategy can promote the massive scale up in electrolyser capacity in Europe, while collaborating at a global scale with main partners such Australia and US to provide the necessary clean hydrogen by 2030 and decarbonise our economies.

The second part of the webinar will use the opportunity and present the preliminary results of the Hydrohub Innovation Program which has been working on a baseline (2020 level) design of a GigaWatt electrolyser plant for green hydrogen and corresponding cost analysis.

Join us in this discussion with world-leading experts!
