HYDROGENi to be represented at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Egypt

HYDROGENi Centre Director Nils Røkke will participate in this year’s United Nations Climate Change Conference in Egypt. Hydrogen is expected to be key topic of discussion during the summit, along with CO2 capture and storage (CCS), offshore wind power, climate change adaptation, digitalisation and biodiversity.

The United Nations Climate Change Conference is an annual meeting place, where governmental authorities, politicians, industry representatives, research communities and non-governmental organization from 190 countries will gather together to negotiate ways they can reduce their greenhouse gas emissions.

This year’s conference, also known as “COP27”, will take place in Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt.

COP27 as an important meeting place for increased collaboration

The International Energy Agency (IEA), the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA), and representatives of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change recently published the “Breakthrough Agenda” report. The report’s message is that closer international collaboration is crucial for achieving a successful energy transition on nature’s terms.

The report emphasises greenhouse gas emission reductions in five sectors: power, road transport, steel, hydrogen and agriculture. These five sectors are responsible for 60% of global greenhouse gas emissions.

“COP27 is an important meeting place for increased collaboration, which is vital for achieving our climate goals, which the Breakthrough Agenda indicates. The IEA warns that without collaboration, the transition to net-zero emissions will be delayed by many decades, and that isn’t an option,” said Røkke.
