Hydrogen – An Opportunity for Europe to fight Climate Change

"Hydrogen is enjoying a renewed and rapidly growing attention in Europe and around the world. Hydrogen can be used as a feedstock, a fuel or an energy carrier and storage, and has many possible applications across industry, transport, power and buildings sectors. Most importantly, it does not emit CO2 and almost no air pollution when used. It thus offers a solution to decarbonise industrial processes and economic sectors where reducing carbon emissions is both urgent and hard to achieve. All this makes hydrogen essential to support the EU's commitment to reach carbon neutrality by 2050 and for the global effort to implement the Paris Agreement while working towards zero pollution."

Communication on A hydrogen strategy for a climate-neutral Europe from the Commission to the European Parliament, the Council, the European Economic and Social Committee and the Committee of the Regions Commission.

This video aims to be a contribute to the consciousness on this big challenge that needs to target research and innovation and may be a strong support to the energy and climate policy objectives.

From the Basque country to Bavaria, passing through Cyprus, the Netherlands, and France, the elected members of the IED have been, each in their own distinctive ways and at different levels, at the forefront of the crisis. They had to change their habits as well as their ways of doing politics. In this special end-of-the-year podcast, we will listen to their vibrant testimonies and their expectations for 2021.
