The Climate Technology Centre and Network (CTCN) assisted Brazil in the internationalization of the Brazilian Hydrogen Association in cooperation with the European Hydrogen Association (EHA). The final workshop “Global interaction and the use of natural resources for the hydrogen production” took place during the 22nd World Hydrogen Energy Conference (WHEC 2018) in Brazil, Rio de Janeiro.
The aim of the workshop was to show different options for large-scale hydrogen production from renewable energy available today in Brazil and the potential applications to mitigate climate change. The event was attended by the representatives from government, industry, academy, associations, research institutes from all over the world.
The Centre has also supported the participation of the National Designated Entity (NDE) from Chile and the representative of the National Institute for Electricity and Clean Energy (INEEL) from Mexico, who met with the Brazilian project team and members of hydrogen associations and institutions, shared the lessons learned and best practice in this sector.
