Annual Conference – Connecting Powerfuel Hubs – 23rd June

The Global Alliance Powerfuels works towards the development of a global market for powerfuels, including hydrogen. This year’s Powerfuels Conference was focusing on Connecting Powerfuel Hubs. Powerfuel hubs are functional units, where Powerfuels are traded, shipped, stored and produced - such as harbours. They will most likely serve as anchors for global trade of hydrogen and its derivatives. And, they will do much more: Powerfuels will be converted and facilitated at Powerfuel Hubs.

In cooperation with EEHH

The 2nd Annual Conference brought together business practitioners, researchers and policy experts to discuss and define the next steps to develop the Powerfuel hubs and showcase their important role for a global Powerfuel market. We partnered with the Renewable Energy Hamburg - the renewable energy network of the city and region of Hamburg in Germany. The city is known for one of the largest harbours worldwide.
