ABOUT European Hydrogen
Conference 

The European Hydrogen Conference (EHC) has been created to focus on the latest projects, technologies and regulations to achieve the European Commission’s net-zero target. Despite the blueprint being laid out, there are still many unanswered questions including the pace of demand creation and developing long-term integrated hydrogen supply.

After a successful virtual gathering in June, we look forward to welcoming you to the live event in Vienna on 2nd February 2022 alongside our renowned European Gas Conference
