“China is the largest hydrogen producer in the world, and production, storage, distribution and end use of hydrogen is expected to grow at an exponential rate. The share of hydrogen in Europe’s energy mix is also projected to grow, and a European Clean Hydrogen Alliance, representing over 100 European companies, has been launched to facilitate a robust investment agenda. Our interactive panel will explore the business opportunities for cutting edge actors from Europe in investing throughout the hydrogen supply chain in China” Gokce Mete, moderator, SEI
