The Spanish Hydrogen Association (AeH2) organizes the European Hydrogen Congress (European Hydrogen Energy Conference EHEC) 2022, which will be held from May 18 to 20 in Madrid, Spain.

The Honor Committee will be chaired by King Felipe VI and will have the support of more than 35 sponsors, and the support of national and international entities, such as Hydrogen Europe (HE), the International Energy Agency (IEA), the Institute for the Diversification and Saving of Energy (IDAE) and the Community of Madrid, among others.

The event included in the Hydrogen Roadmap: a commitment to renewable hydrogen (document approved by the Ministry for the Ecological Transition and the Demographic Challenge), is one of the initiatives proposed to position Spain as a reference country at European level in green hydrogen-linked technologies.

331 EHEC 2022

EHEC 2022, which happens to be the scientific, technical and strategic congress of reference at European level, will have in this edition more than two hundred speakers, “who will present -reports AeH2- their most relevant projects, development strategies, the latest technological advances and the most innovative research linked to hydrogen technologies”.

They will do so through up to four plenary sessions, as well as in the various parallel sessions and poster sessions that the organizers have scheduled. In addition, EHEC 2022 is also a trade fair, where more than 50 exhibitors will present their latest products, projects and services.

Javier Brey, president of the AeH2 and president of the organizing committee of EHEC 2022 expressed: “EHEC 2022 is a clear example of the commitment to green hydrogen in Spain. Technologies and projects linked to hydrogen are essential to decarbonise the Spanish economy and to advance in the energy transition. Without a doubt, hydrogen presents itself as a great opportunity for our country, which has the necessary business fabric for its development and implementation, as well as great production potential. Spain has the opportunity to play a leading role at the international level in terms of hydrogen. The country’s high renewable resource allows it to cover local needs and be able to export the surplus. The Hydrogen Economy will bring with it the generation of employment, greater economic development and energy security”.
