EIC’s Principal Supporting Partner
Ahead of this year’s COP26 summit, EIC have partnered with DNV on a LIVE series of webinars. Together, we aim to promote industry awareness and address the key factors surrounding the future of the global energy sector and the work, we as an industry, must continue to do in lowering carbon emissions and tackling our net zero targets.
Road to COP26: Is the future hydrogen?
There’s recognition that hydrogen has the potential to be a major component of a global, low-carbon, energy system, as deployment and investments in hydrogen have accelerated rapidly to meet the targets of the Paris Agreement.
As it becomes one of the most talked about clean technologies bringing us closer to our net zero goals, join our panel of experts as they explore the future, expectations, potential challenges, and possibilities of hydrogen in a range of sectors from production to industry.
