The VDE has developed the format for the "VDE FINANCIAL DIALOGUE" platform over the last 20 years and has continued to promote it internationally together with important stakeholders. The VDE FINANCIAL DIALOGUE is a communication platform for decision-makers in industry, the financial and insurance sectors as well as market supervisory authorities and politics. With this concept and the further dissemination of the results, the VDE supports the continuous improvement of quality standards as well as business management criteria as a bridge builder.

Hydrogen systems are maturing into an increasingly interesting option, both in the stationary and mobile sectors. The dynamics in development and commercialisation are great and are currently flanked by funding and market incentive programmes. For several products and systems, the technology readiness level for market entry has been reached or is about to be reached. It is now crucial how economically promising business models can be developed in combination with renewable energies. Only in this way can the expected contributions of the hydrogen economy to independence, energy security and the achievement of the goals for the energy transition be achieved.

As part of the HYDROGEN DIALOGUE Summit & Expo 2022 in Nürnberg, VDE Renewables hosted the VDE FINANCIAL DIALOGUE HYDROGEN to bring together stakeholders from the industry to discuss these topics and the measures that are necessary to promote the hydrogen industry in future.

The Whitepaper from this event reports on these discussions from industry leaders and focuses on key steps needed to include hydrogen in the energy economy in future.
