The World Hydrogen 2022 Summit & Exhibition will open its doors to over 3,500 industry professionals on 9-11 May in Rotterdam where more than 120 leading hydrogen companies will be showcasing their technologies, applications and solutions at the city’s largest arena, the Rotterdam Ahoy. The anticipated meeting is the first large-scale hydrogen-focused event to take place following the pandemic in Rotterdam, a city recognised for its advances towards sustainability and its clear ambition to become Europe’s Hydrogen Hub. Details of registration are given below. [Promoted by the Sustainable Energy Council]
Hydrogen promises to be a game-changer for the energy transition, as an essential energy carrier and feedstock enabling the decarbonisation of the most polluting sectors of the economy which can’t be electrified. The urgency of climate change as well as the recent energy crisis has reaffirmed the importance of renewables and hydrogen in establishing a secure energy future.
World Hydrogen 2022 is hosted in partnership with the Province of Zuid Holland, the City of Rotterdam and the Port of Rotterdam. Allard Castelein, CEO Port of Rotterdam said: “Rotterdam’s existing ecosystem of hydrogen off-takers, its existing tank terminals, its world class companies, its international network and its ambitious plans and proven track record of developing world-class facilities, will work as an accelerator for hydrogen activities. The annual summit and exhibition about actual developments is a logical addition to this.”
Free to attend for trade visitors, the World Hydrogen 2022 Exhibition will gather a wide range of industry sectors to meet, collaborate and learn how hydrogen can transform industries to bring them in line with Net Zero commitments at an accelerated pace.
The open stage on the Exhibition floor dubbed the “H2 Tech Series powered by bp” will feature back-to-back presentations from experts in their field, demonstrating key technical and commercial advances as well as answering questions from the industry who are keen to know where the opportunities lie in this fast-growing area of the energy transition.
Visitors will be able to experience a “Hydrogen in Action Zone” displaying machines, trucks, planes and refuelling stations in an area entirely powered by a CMB.TECH zero-emissions hydrogen generator, capable of saving up to 1 tonne of CO2 per day (24-hour operation), compared to the equivalent standard diesel genset.
Chris Hugall Managing Director at Sustainable Energy Council said: “There’s never been greater urgency to decarbonise across sectors and deliver on the energy transition. World Hydrogen 2022 is the one-stop platform for hydrogen business, policy and finance to build key relationships and consolidate the energy market of the future.”

About the Province of Zuid-Holland
The province of Zuid-Holland is one of Europe’s top regions in terms of economic and social potential: an innovative metropolitan delta, comprising of mainport Rotterdam, greenports, knowledge-intensive businesses, universities and knowledge institutes, as well as highly populated urbans and rural areas. In order to achieve our climate targets, there will be need for hydrogen. Hydrogen will be the new essential energy carrier and feedstock for decarbonising industry and creating a new green industry. Together with partners, the province of Zuid Holland is working on an integral value chain for Zuid-Holland as Europe’s Hydrogen Hub. Cooperation across national borders is an important requirement to complete the necessary energy transition and we welcome interest to work together.
