(September 12, 2022, Frankfurt) For over 20 years, VDE has been holding its FINANCIAL DIALOGUE to promote communication across different sectors and improve the investment climate for green technologies. Participants include stakeholders from industry and the financial and insurance sector, market regulators and developers of standards and quality criteria. For the first time, the VDE FINANCIAL DIALOGUE on September 22 will be taking place as part of the HYDROGEN DIALOGUE – an event for sharing knowledge and experience in the field of hydrogen, which is being held at the Nuremberg Exhibition Centre on September 21–22.
Green hydrogen produced solely from renewable energy sources is a key element in the fight against climate change. As a raw material, it can be used for a variety of industrial processes and is also a suitable fuel for freight transport via trucks, ships or trains. Hydrogen technologies have seen rapid development in recent years, with numerous products and systems that are already in use or about to be launched. The crucial task now is to ensure the success of economically promising business models that work with renewable energies and battery storage systems.
Creating the framework for economic success
At present, many hydrogen projects are still supported by subsidies and market incentive programs. “Now we need to prepare for when the subsidies expire. VDE Renewables supports banks and insurance companies in assessing the technical risks of plants producing renewable energy. Our many years of experience working with uniform quality standards and performance criteria is exactly what the hydrogen industry needs right now to turn the many ambitious and visionary projects into reality,” says VDE Renewables CEO Burkhard Holder.
At the VDE FINANCIAL DIALOGUE HYDROGEN 2022, experts will discuss the state of the art in the hydrogen industry. Entrepreneurs and investors will share their experience with business models, including automotive technology and hydrogen fueling stations. Stakeholders from the insurance and financial sector will shed light on the key criteria they consider before insuring or financing hydrogen projects.
