Import(ance) of H2A, 4th of July

Importing 1 million tonnes of green hydrogen via the port of Amsterdam. That is the ambition of the new H2A consortium.

As the launching partners, Evos Amsterdam, Port of Amsterdam, Zenith Energy Terminals, Hydrogenious, Electriq Global, the Municipality of Amsterdam and the PB NZKG (North Sea Canal Area) want to propel the regional, national and international green hydrogen value chains forward.

The inaugural symposium ‘Import(ance) of H2A: Propelling the Future’, to be held on the 4th of July, will expand on this ambition, by discussing numerous interesting and relevant topics, like developments in the maritime and aviation sectors, links between Amsterdam region and international initiatives, transportation of hydrogen, public-private collaboration, and much more.

The symposium will feature many prominent speakers, headlined by Diederik Samsom, Chief of Staff of Frans Timmermans, European Commission Executive Vice-President. Other confirmed speakers include Kari-Pekka Laaksonen, CEO Samskip, Baruch Halpert, CEO Electriq Global and Brigit Gijsbers, Deputy Director-General Aviation and Maritime Affairs at the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management. More speakers will be announced in the run up to the event.

We are happy to cordially invite you to join us on the 4th of July to attend this exciting symposium. We look forward to the opportunity to discuss propelling the future of hydrogen with you and to toast the launch of H2A together!
