Hydrogen is one of today’s big topics. With the influences of the climate change debate and the shutdown of gas from Russia, the world is looking for alternatives and hydrogen is on everyone’s lips. But what is going on? Why hydrogen? Why now? What are the risks? How will this affect us? How will this affect industry? Who is driving innovation and why now?

Please join our AGBC Munich meeting on 22nd February and get some answers!

When we started to pull this talk together a couple of months ago, we thought this would be an interesting talk about how we will all be using hydrogen in our homes and in our cars instead of traditional fuels. But this is just scratching the surface. It really is the tip of the iceberg!

On Feb 22nd, we will be having a panel discussion with 3 leading experts on Hydrogen who will enlighten us all as to what is below sea-level in this iceberg.

Our expert panelists are:
