Collaboration, education, innovation, De-risking large scale hydrogen projects In collaboration between Davos Innovation Center, ECUBES and Y3D.AI, an exclusive event was held involving representatives from the North Adriatic Hydrogen Valley in Europe, as well as the Middle East and North Africa. The event highlighted the significant role of clean hydrogen in shaping a sustainable world. Acknowledged by the European Union as a crucial component in achieving climate neutrality, clean hydrogen not only plays a pivotal role in sustainable energy but is also a fundamental element in the promotion of global peace. With its exceptional capability for storing and delivering renewable energy, clean hydrogen stands as a cornerstone in reducing carbon footprints and fostering sustainable energy solutions. The event aimed at fostering a widespread green energy transition through cross-continental collaboration. The announcement of Project ORYX GREEN ADRIAIC BLUE, which focuses on transporting clean hydrogen from MENA to the North Adriatic region,…

Hydrogen is one of the priority areas where market-ready technologies are needed to accelerate the phasing out of fossil fuels. Hydrogen Valleys are geographical areas where the EU hydrogen economy works at local level and includes citizens. Hydrogen Valleys contribute to the REPowerEU objectives by scaling up green hydrogen production and supply to meet the growing demand from industry, transport and other sectors. For Europe to remain a frontrunner in rolling out Hydrogen Valleys, the European hydrogen industry, scientific community, and European regions, together with the European Commission, need to step up and accelerate joint actions. The event was organised by the European Commission’s Directorate General for Research and Innovation, and supported by Hydrogen Europe, Hydrogen Europe Research and the Clean Hydrogen Partnership. Mariya Gabriel, European Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, participated in the event ‘Repowering the EU with Hydrogen Valleys: showcasing innovative solutions’ who took place in Brussels, Belgium.…
