HYDROGEN DIALOGUE – International delegations

International delegations form an important cornerstone of the HYDROGEN DIALOGUE. Find all relevant information here.

The HYDROGEN DIALOGUE is a significant international conference (Summit) and exhibition (Expo) dedicated to the promotion of hydrogen technologies and solutions. Each year, this platform brings together leading representatives from industry, science, and politics to discuss the latest developments and trends in the hydrogen economy. In this context, international delegations also play an important role in the exchange of knowledge and experiences, as well as in fostering international cooperation and partnerships.

Bavarian Hydrogen Expertise

Bavaria is an important driver for a successful hydrogen economy in Europe. The state had already published a hydrogen strategy before the German government and created the Hydrogen Center Bavaria (H2.B), the central strategy and coordination office in Bavaria for national and international hydrogen actors. Together with its more than 360 partners in the Hydrogen Alliance Bavaria, Bavaria represents a very successful location for hydrogen expertise along the entire value chain.

Bavaria offers international hydrogen players and partners technologies for the production, conversion, storage, delivery and use of green hydrogen that demonstrate solutions for decarbonizing the energy, industry and mobility sectors. At the same time, Bavaria, with its strong industry, has a high demand for imported, sustainable hydrogen.

With the event HYDROGEN DIALOGUE – Summit & Expo, NürnbergMesse offers a meeting point for national and international decision makers and experts from business, science and politics to come together in Nuremberg, Bavaria, in order to exchange knowledge and to position themselves successfully in the hydrogen economy.
