Past Event "Hydrogen in the Nordics"

Past Event on Thursday 12 October - Study Launch & Expert Discussion: "Hydrogen in the Nordics - Strategies for the Hydrogen Economy in the Nordic Region and Possible Entry-Points for Cooperation"

The Nordics are positioning themselves as leaders in the energy transition and pursue ambitious decarbonisation targets in an effort to combat climate change. The possible role of hydrogen in achieving carbon-neutral societies has seen an increase in activity by various stakeholders in the region.

The upcoming policy paper “Hydrogen in the Nordics: Strategies for the hydrogen economy in the Nordic region” by the Research Institute for Sustainability - RIFS Potsdam provides a concise overview of the hydrogen strategies that are actively being developed in the Nordic countries and discusses the potential for closer cooperation for the development of a European hydrogen economy, both within and beyond the Nordic region.

On the occasion of its launch we will present the paper`s main findings and discuss possible implications for enabling the ramp-up of hydrogen in the EU with an international expert roundtable:

  • What measures are necessary to strengthen cooperation on hydrogen development within the Nordic region and beyond?
  • What role can hydrogen form the Nordic countries play for the European hydrogen economy, particularly from a German perspective?
  • Which open questions remain for a quick run-up of the hydrogen market, e.g. with regard to CCS and blue hydrogen?

This German-Nordic event is jointly organized by the Friedrich-Ebert-Foundation, the Research Institute for Sustainability - RIFS Potsdam (Germany), Tankesmien Agenda (Norway), and the Kalevi Sorsa Foundation (Finland).
