Transition Summit: Hydrogen

Shifting to a Hydrogen Economy: A Roadmap to Reality

Climate Action is pleased to announce the Transition Summits, a series of 2-day virtual events focusing on 5 key sector transitions: Hydrogen, Industry, Transport, Energy and Cities.

First up, hydrogen! Hydrogen will be vital if we are to meet 2030 climate goals and beyond. But as governments set out ambitious hydrogen strategies, deeper public-private partnerships and new investment is required to make the hydrogen hype a reality.

The Hydrogen Transition Summit will take place on the 23 & 25 February with 4 deep-dive sessions on how hydrogen will play a critical role in the Energy Transition.

Mission Innovation will work with the organisers, Climate Action, to drive positive, proactive engagement while exploring the role of clean hydrogen as a key driver of the transition to net-zero. Mission Innovation (MI) is the main intergovernmental platform working to accelerate clean energy innovation to address climate change, improve energy access, and make clean energy affordable.
