100% renewable targets will require power storage to manage flows on the net
Electrolysers utilise these intermittent power flows to produce H2 gas from water
H2 gas can be stored in large quantities underground and transported via existing gas pipelines
H2 vehicles recharge faster and are more durable than battery powered transport
Growing H2 demand in industrial processes will reduce costs and increase supply

High-level stakeholders will meet for the “Energy Roadmap 2050”, Milestones on the road to 2050, Designing next steps for a decarbonised, competitive and secure EU energy system.

The purpose of the conference is to identify common ground and share new perspectives on:

  • How to seize the geostrategic and growth opportunities of the transition to a low carbon energy system, while avoiding pitfalls on the way
  • The concrete EU energy policies that should be developed to move towards 2030, specifically in the fields of energy efficiency, energy infrastructure, market design and investment incentives to promote specific energy technology paths, for example with a high share of renewables
  • The immediate and next steps for the EU – including the assessment of potential benefits of milestones for energy in 2030
