14:40 - 15:30 Hydrogen Economy (interpreted), hall Ballroom I
Gradual achievement of climate neutrality in accordance with the Paris Agreement, the Fit for 55a REpower UE programs envisages a transition to the use of emission-free or low-emission hydrogen. In the medium term, hydrogen will become an efficient energy carrier that will be used in precisely defined areas. The goal will be to create the conditions to be able to ensure enough hydrogen for industry, energy and mobility. This trend is supported by EU structures as well as within the Slovak Republic. The strategic decision was the adoption of the National Hydrogen Strategy by the Government of the Slovak Republic in 2021, which includes the development of an Action Plan for the fulfillment of the goals defined in the strategy in the short term until 2026. When introducing hydrogen technologies, the question of their economic prosperity in the context of the conditions for the sustainable development of society is often discussed in both professional and political structures. These questions will be the subject of discussion by experts during the Spring ITAPA 2023 conference.
