Hydrogen Leadership Forum.

We are counting down until December 14th, when we will share knowledge and make connections. We hope to see you there!









Leading the Transition

Hydrogen has proven to be the European energy carrier of choice. Now the continent looks at its most effective production and uses. The North-West European region offers space for large scale renewable energy generation, it also already contains the most intense and state-of-the-art energy, manufacturing, and chemical industries of the continent in the six countries (NO, DK, DE, NL, BE, UK). The opportunity for profitable exploitation is clear, now we need action through a risky economic and political field.

Can we muster the courage to make the North-Sea the ‘battery of Europe’ in time for the climate goals? For that we need leaders willing to stick out, step forward, and take the initiative. Bringing these leaders together allows the sectors to coordinate their timelines, infrastructure, and future ambitions, so that all may enjoy the largest possible benefits from their investments.


First-mover advantage or disadvantage?
Cooperation in long-term projects
Investing during risky transitions
Leadership as catalyst for effective change
North-Sea as unique energy and industry asset
Grey hub-and-spoke: common CCUS infrastructure?
Supplying the supply: construction and manufacturing for the transition
Storage needed for scale - The economics of large hydrogen markets
