The 22nd World Hydrogen Energy Conference (WHEC) will take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from June 17 to 22, 2018.

In 1992 world leaders met in Rio de Janeiro for the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development to create the vision of sustainable development as guideline for the 21st century.

26 years later world-leading researchers and stakeholders will come to Rio de Janeiro for the main world conference about hydrogen energy, to discuss the most promising technologies towards sustainability.


Brazil is one of the leading countries worldwide in the use of regenerative energy in large scale. In 2016, 82.8 % of electricity was produced from renewable sources, offering a wide range of sources for a clean and sustainable hydrogen production.


The World Hydrogen Energy Conference is the opportunity for international and Brazilian communities to strengthen their global efforts on the path to sustainability. The dissemination of knowledge on hydrogen energy will foster the interest for the new scientific and technological activities.


The conference titled “Power and biomass to hydrogen” will feature a variety of plenary lectures, keynotes, and presentations. It will be complemented by a selection of engaging workshops, technical tours, and evening events. Also, the World Bioenergy Symposium will be co-located to the World Hydrogen Energy Conference.
