Where the global hydrogen industry meets: Third HYDROGEN DIALOGUE to be held in person for first time in Nuremberg

  • Following two successful digital editions, HYDROGEN DIALOGUE Summit & Expo will meet in person for the first time, as well as via live stream
  • Hydrogen a potential source of hope in era of Energy Crisis
  • All HYDROGEN DIALOGUE presentations to be simultaneously interpreted into English for international attendees (including those online)

The Third HYDROGEN DIALOGUE Summit & Expo in Nuremberg reflects the immense importance of hydrogen for our energy supply and our climate, economy and politics. From 21 to 22 September, it will be offering more than 70 high-quality presentations, talks and panel discussions covering the entire value chain of the global hydrogen industry. The emphases for 2022: The Energy Crisis, international projects and cooperative ventures, and financing for hydrogen projects. Online attendance at HYDROGEN DIALOGUE is also available (live stream in German and English).

The current geopolitical situation makes the Third HYDROGEN DIALOGUE more important than ever. “Hydrogen can become a source of hope in times of the Energy Crisis. This is the moment to bring together the right partners to scale up and accelerate the market”, says Jasmin Rutka, Director of HYDROGEN DIALOGUE at NürnbergMesse. “Following two successful digital editions of HYDROGEN DIALOGUE Summit & Expo, the hydrogen industry is impatient to meet face to face at last in Nuremberg.”

The presentations, panel discussions, and accompanying exhibition with 36 exhibitors represent a cross-section of current concerns in the national and international hydrogen industry. They’ll be presenting topics like the “H2 opportunity of a century: Germany as a hydrogen country”, as well as ways of scaling up and accelerating the market, or also setting up a European hydrogen infrastructure in a talk on “Will the pipes be enough?” Among the other topics: “A secure supply with diversification – Impact of the geopolitical situation on the importance of hydrogen as an energy source”; “Transition scenarios after the exit from coal and nuclear, and the importance of hydrogen as the ‘Coal of the Future’”; and “The development of the global hydrogen economy” with current key figures about the market.

Emphases for 2022: Internationality, innovation, investment

The third edition of the Nuremberg industry summit is even more international than ever – with many presentations on strategies and projects from outside Germany. Highlights include a presentation by Colombian Energy Minister Irene Vélez about the energy transformation in Colombia, one by Quebec Associate Deputy Energy Minister Dominique Deschênes, and one by Ivan McKee, Scotland’s Minister for Business, Trade, Tourism and Enterprise. Delegations, attendees, presenters and exhibitors will be arriving from many different countries including Canada, Hungary, Estonia, Australia, Japan, Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Chile, Panama, Tunisia, Scotland, Poland and India.

Another focal point will be innovations and investments in the hydrogen market, for instance with a talk on “Innovations for the Global Hydrogen Economy” with Stefan Kaufmann of thyssenkrupp steel and Jorgo Chatzimarkakis of Hydrogen Europe, and a keynote speech on “Hydrogen playing a key role in the energy transformation?! What companies could fill the bill? An assessment by a global investor”. And on HYDROGEN DIALOGUE’s Innovation Stage, VDE Renewables, in cooperation with Munich RE, will be holding the first VDE FINANCIAL DIALOGUE HYDROGEN 2022. Topics will include the current status of technology, market development, interesting practical experiences, and the financial and insurance industry’s expectations.

Another side event will be EUROPEAN HYDROGEN TRANSPORT DIALOGUE on 21 September, in cooperation with TechTour and Hydrogen Europe – with 30 investors from all over Europe and 30 European ventures who will pitch their innovative solutions for all aspects of mobility and transportation in the hydrogen sector. The five best ventures will also pitch their ideas on the Innovation Stage during the evening get-together.

All in all, attendees at the Third HYDROGEN DIALOGUE will be able to find out about the whole value chain in the global hydrogen industry – in more than 70 presentations from over 100 well-known speakers, including Dr Carsten Rolle (Executive Director, World Energy Council Germany); Piotr Kus (Director General, ENTSOG); Prof. Veronika Grimm (National Hydrogen Council Member, Economic Sage and Co-Chairperson H2.B); Holger Lösch (Deputy Director General, Federation of German Industries); Thorsten Herdan (CEO, HIF Global); Andreas Kuhlmann (Chief Executive, German Energy Agency, dena), Dr Kirsten Westphal (H2 Global); Jorgo Chatzimarkakis (Hydrogen Europe); and Sara Edmonson (Regional Lead Europe at Fortescue Future Industries, FFI).
