Hydrogen in China and East Asia

9.00 - 11.00
World Trade Center, Stockholm / Teams

China, Korea and Japan play an important role in the global hydrogen scene, as technology developers, electrolyzer producers and application forerunners. A substantial part of the technology for the European hydrogen development is depending on Asia. At the same time, China and other Asian countries are major exports markets.

However, many of us have a limited knowledge on hydrogen in China and East Asia. At this event we take a deeper look at the hydrogen development in the region.
