The UK Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association (UK HFCA) has today (Oct 14) launched its ‘Road to COP26’ to showcase the leading role hydrogen and fuel cells can play on the path to decarbonisation.
Supported by the UK Government’s Department for International Trade, the campaign will also shine a light on the UK’s domestic and hydrogen fuel cell industry in the lead to COP26.
To do this, members of the UKHFCA will be able to highlight their role in the hydrogen economy via the UK HFCA’s Road to COP26 website. A number of members will also host visits from political stakeholders to showcase their work.
On the programme, Celia Greaves, CEO of the UK HFCA, said, “As COP26 approaches, the spotlight will be on whether countries agree to emissions cuts to limit global warming to 1.5°C and on reaching consensus ono how this might be realised.
“Our members will play an integral role in helping to achieve the green ambitions of nations and our Road to COP26 programme will showcase this. Our members are proof that hydrogen and fuel cells are here and now, and ready to play their part in the net zero transition.
“In this way, the shift to a more sustainable world can create real economic opportunities for the UK economy – whether that is producing for domestic demand or exporting internationally.”
US DOE, General Motors, Microsoft and Plug Power
What does the US Department of Energy (DOE), General Motors, Microsoft and Plug Power have in common? They’re all speaking at H2 View’s North American Virtual Hydrogen Event in October. Will you be joining us on October 19?
North America is in a prime position to lead efforts in decarbonisation, but it still has great distances to travel. The region has been giving chase in a race to green hydrogen dominated by Europe and Asia-Pacific. If policymakers and industry can work together and take the right steps to realise a hydrogen vision, the region is perfectly placed to expand its global energy leadership at scale and speed.
What lessons can be learned from Europe’s policymakers? What are the challenges to be overcome? What are the strengths and opportunities? How can North America go from giving chase to taking a lead in hydrogen? These are all questions our virtual event will address across H2 View’s four pillars of Mobility, Power, Policy and Technology.
