The contribution of power-to-gas technologies to achieve a carbon neutral economy by 2050 is gaining traction at European level. It opens new opportunities for the renewables sector at large and the solar industry in particular, expanding its contribution beyond the energy system, towards industrial, heating and transport sectors. Countries such as Japan or Australia have already initiated ambitious investments programs to produce hydrogen from solar energy.

What about Europe?

Which is the true potential of solar-to-hydrogen technologies and what are the most promising business models already reaching the market?

What measures are needed to support the uptake of a competitive solar-to-hydrogen industry in Europe?

SolarPower Europe and the Austrian Federal Ministry of Sustainability and Tourism invite you to explore the future of solar-based hydrogen technologies and embark on a fascinating journey with leading European solar companies.
