Decarbonized Molecules
Green Hydrogen and Biogas
9:30 (CET)
What We’ll Discuss
When setting ambitious goals for the energy transition, we assign a large role to decarbonized molecules, designed to push aside and phase out fossil fuels and offer them an alternative.

Biogas and hydrogen are the leaders in this scope of technologies, and it is no coincidence that they are experiencing such a boom. However, the hype around them also has a downside - it is difficult to understand how mature the technologies are, what the real challenges for their development are, what we need to focus our efforts on right now, and what volumes we can count on in the future.
How to create a strong demand pull?
How crucial are decarbonized molecules to reach Europe's stated energy transition goals?
Why is it proposed to design ecosystems? What is the role of supply and value chains here?
What are the main challenges for developing this scope of technologies?
Green hydrogen vs. grey and all the others — how realistic is it, and why should we focus on green now?
What opportunities are now on the table to ramp up investment into capacities and infrastructure?
