Has the hydrogen revolution finally arrived?

Javier Brey Sánchez

  • General Manager, Abengoa Hydrogen

In this talk, Javier Brey Sánchez will discuss how the scientific and industrial sectors have been well aware of hydrogen and fuel cell technologies for decades now. However, in recent months, the so-called “Hydrogen Economy” seems to be picking up speed.

Security of supply, costs of imports, and environmental contamination are reasons that are moving countries towards this new energy paradigm. The path to a hydrogen future, however, faces numerous obstacles, detours, and possible dead ends. In this brief address, the basic concepts will be reviewed, the main opportunities and barriers will be highlighted, and the hydrogen strategies some countries (e.g., Germany, UK, Spain) are adopting will be explained.
