In Germany, which is rapidly introducing renewable energies to achieve carbon neutrality by 2045, the role of hydrogen is attracting increasing attention.

As the energy capital of Europe, Essen in NRW is an important anchor point of the energy and climate revolution. Essen bundles top companies and research institutions that represent a complete hydrogen ecosystem. Unique is the high density of companies and the exemplary networking of the energy sector and other industries with universities, institutions and research facilities, combined with national and international cooperation. All this creates excellent conditions for the hydrogen age.

The Japanese government formulated the world's first Basic Hydrogen Strategy in December 2017, positioning hydrogen as an essential energy source for decarbonization.

EWG – Essen Economic Development Agency and JETRO – Japan External Trade Organization invited guest speakers to present best practices from Japan and Essen online on May 17th, 2022.

The seminar will cover startup activities, municipal efforts and strategies of Essen, introduction of the advanced hydrogen regions Fukushima and Yamanashi, and lastly international corporate projects and research activities. The professionals will give an overview of the wide range, where hydrogen can be a game changer and highlight the potential for more international cooperation between Germany and Japan.
