Thank You to All Speakers, Sponsors & Attendees of the Summit

The World Hydrogen Fuels Summit, produced by the Sustainable Energy Council (SEC) took place on 10-11 March 2020 gathering over 100 senior Government and industry leaders, with 30 expert speakers, 7 sponsoring companies and 15 supporting associations, who shared their organisations’ impressive advances on projects and technology, which are making hydrogen the go-to alternative to fossil fuels for our industries, transport and shipping.

We’re look forward to welcoming you to the next edition taking place in March 2021. Get in touch with our team to discuss how to participate.

We will continue the conversation on our social media – with #HydrogenFuelsSummit on Twitter and Linkedin –  advancing collaboration in policy, projects and strategies to bring forward a #hydrogeneconomy and achieve #NetZero goals.

Highlights from the 2020 Hydrogen Fuels Summit


The World Hydrogen Fuels Summit welcomed the international hydrogen community for 2 days of insightful debates and networking in Amsterdam last week. Some of the highlights of the Summit included:

  • We heard from the Hydrogen movers of tomorrow, altogether in one room; Noe Van Holst, Joao Galamba, Christian Weinberger and too many others to name, about how Governments and the European Commission saw the future of Hydrogen shaping our societies
  • The networking throughout the Summit was full of elbow shakes and responsible distancing, but insightful nonetheless with great connections across sectors being made
  • A handful of passionate speakers participated via live-feed or video presentations, including David Turk from the IEA, you can  watch his industry scene setting keynote here


  • With a diverse representation from across the value chain, we reached a consensus on the immediate measures to prioritise including more cost-cutting of electrolysers and continued policy-making favouring hydrogen infrastructure

  • The potential for heavy industry, maritime and other sectors is closer to mainstreamisation than we think – with new progress to expect in scaling up, clusters and sector coupling

  • New announcements for projects in the Netherlands, Portugal and Japan, as well as the Summit coinciding with early talks on the EU’s Green Deal commitment to hydrogen deployment

  • Fantastic Networking Functions including Gala Dinner and Coffee Breaks throughout the Summit hosted by Smart Energy

  • Great to see the foundations for public-private collaboration with the British Embassy & DIT hosting a Drinks Reception with the theme #GreenisGreat

The World Hydrogen Fuels Summit Aims to:

  • Establish a role for hydrogen in long-term international energy strategies
  • Eliminate unnecessary regulatory barriers and harmonise policy standards
  • Engage internationally and track progress – Hydrogen’s complex supply chains mean governments, companies, communities and civil society need to consult regularly
  • Encourage the sharing of good practices and cross border infrastructure
  • Stimulate commercial demand for clean hydrogen
  • Address investment risks and routes to avoid the valley of death
  • Support R&D to bring down costs

  • Demonstrate real-world pilots and at scale demonstrations to support the development of policy, business cases, technology, consumer confidence and build supply chain capacity
  • Capture the potential of key markets leading the Hydrogen revolution
  • Support high quality jobs which will require highly skilled and trained workers, as well as export opportunities for growing international markets
  • Understand where and how to leverage the power of low-carbon hydrogen to carve out a position for your company in a fast-growing market
