The next frontier of the energy transition



a unique event at a critical STAGE IN THE ENERGY TRANSITION

A unique digital event at a critical stage in the energy transition, brought to you by the team who launched SPARK


Electrification can only go so far in achieving a carbon neutral economy. Hydrogen will play a key role in the decarbonisation of many areas of transport, heavy industry, and heating. From the European Union to Australia, governments around the world are publishing hydrogen strategies pledging to ramp up production and uptake between now and 2050.

SPARK-H will support the growth of the clean hydrogen sector by showcasing the latest projects and innovations and providing a virtual space for partners across the value chain to meet, no matter where they are in the world.
