Introduction to Hydrogen (1/2)

#1 Production and application climate-friendly hydrogen

The European Union and Germany want to be climate neutral by 2050 (EU) and 2045 (D). Green hydrogen can help to achieve this goal. In fact, Green hydrogen is a key technology to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the steel, cement and chemical industries.

In this webinar, you will learn what hydrogen is and hydrogen´s role in energy transition and climate neutrality. The webinar looks at current debates to help you understand different perspectives. We will explore which political framework enables a truly sustainable hydrogen economy.



  • Dipl.-Wirt.-Ing. Maike Schmidt, Head Department of Systems Analysis, Center for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research Baden-Württemberg (ZSW)

Moderation: Dr. Stefanie Groll, Head Department of Sustainability Policies, Heinrich Böll Foundation
