The workshop took place on 16 March 2021 and focused on the following topics:

  • Overview of hydrogen as an alternative transport fuel: the role of hydrogen fuel in the green transition and mapping of relevant and ongoing joint projects.
  • The state of play and perspectives of hydrogen fuel as a game changer for rail, maritime, aviation, and road sectors, and the emerging solutions and technical obstacles to its full exploitation.
  • EU position vis-à-vis international partners and competitors.
  • Future actions needed to strengthen the path towards the hydrogen economy: project financing and legislative options, including the forthcoming revision of the Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Directive.

The presentations were followed by Q&A session with members whereby, among other subjects, the clean hydrogen option, as well as the need to ensure a fair transition were raised and further elaborated by the experts.
