Press invitation to the event ‘The future of H2 economy and the position of H2 in heavy-duty mobility’
The partners of the EMR H2 Booster project are pleased to invite the press to the legendary Spa-Francorchamps circuit on 18 April, from 12:00 onwards. Different cars but also trucks – which is a great premiere in Wallonia – will parade on the legendary Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps.
The pace is accelerating for green hydrogen in Europe and in Wallonia. Indeed, Europe is increasing its ambitions and activities in the field of hydrogen in order to reach its decarbonization objectives and to become independent from fossil fuels. Renewable hydrogen should therefore soon take an important part in the new energy mix.
It is in this dynamic context that the network of green hydrogen actors in Wallonia, in the presence of Minister Henry, Walloon Minister for Climate, Energy, Mobility and Infrastructure, invites the cross-border regions for a day of exchange around an ecosystem dedicated to hydrogen on the scale of the Euregio Meuse-Rhine territory: the Province of Liège (BE), Limburg (BE), Limburg (NL) and Aachen (DE).
The event that the TWEED and SPI are organizing on 18 April aims to bring together companies in the H2 sector that wish to develop cross-border synergies in the form of three sub-ecosystems for EMR:
– EMR H2 road corridor
Development of local hydrogen production, transport and distribution infrastructures, as well as the development of a fleet of heavy vehicles (coaches, trucks and refrigerated trailers) running on hydrogen;
– EMR H2 river corridor
Development of hydrogen production, transport and distribution infrastructures, as well as the development of a fleet of barges running on hydrogen;
– EMR H2 ecosystem including players from the entire hydrogen value chain;
During the event more than 170 pioneers in the sector will sign a declaration of common H2 commitments, there will be a parade of hydrogen vehicles on the circuit, a B2B session and many inspiring presentations.
