Gastech, the world’s largest exhibition and conference supporting the gas, liquefied natural gas (LNG), hydrogen, and energy industry, will have its own dedicated Gastech Hydrogen event positioning hydrogen as a clean energy solution.
The 3-day event, which ends today in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE), was organised by dmg events and held under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Ruler of Dubai, and supported by the Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure.
The Gastech Hydrogen is expected to connect policymakers, producers, consumers, and suppliers to facilitate the hydrogen market development towards lower and zero-carbon fuels that will play a central role in the delivery of the new energy landscape.
To decarbonise the energy sector we must introduce more efficient and lower emissions technologies today for natural gas, while at the same time accelerate adoption of carbon capture, utilisation, and storage (CCUS), hydrogen, and energy storage.
Identified as a key solution to climate change and the urgency of decarbonisation, hydrogen is an increasingly popular form of clean energy with huge growth potential.
Gastech Hydrogen will therefore provide a spotlight on this fast-emerging fuel source and allow companies from across the hydrogen value chain to showcase the latest products, services, and solutions.
Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of energy technology company Baker Hughes, sponsors of Gastech Hydrogen, Lorenzo Simonelli, said: “We know that natural gas can both be a transition fuel and a destination fuel towards a lower carbon future. To decarbonise the energy sector we must introduce more efficient and lower emissions technologies today for natural gas, while at the same time accelerate adoption of carbon capture, utilisation, and storage (CCUS), hydrogen, and energy storage. Only with scale can these technologies make a meaningful impact in the energy transition.
“It is encouraging to see such a strong focus on hydrogen at this year’s Gastech conference. The time for industry, governments and partners to tap into the potential of hydrogen is now. Baker Hughes’ decades-long advancements in hydrogen technology position us as a key player in the energy transition and a collaborator to drive success.”
He added that as the world transitions towards a new energy landscape, governments and industry must work together to ensure that they are on target to deliver on the shared global mandate of a low carbon economy.
With energy demand increasing worldwide by both consumers and industries, including power generation, construction, and transport, the organisers believe Gastech will help governments and industry navigate the complexities of the energy transition, as companies look to adapt to the trends, challenges and opportunities shaping global gas markets.
