European Hydrogen Energy Conference

Learn about EHEC history, purpose, and all it has to offer!

The European Hydrogen Energy Conference (EHEC) is Europe's conference of reference in the field of hydrogen energy. This edition will take place on May 18-20th 2022 in Madrid. EHEC was identified in the Spanish Hydrogen Roadmap in 2020 as one of the measures to position Spain as a benchmark for these technologies in Europe.

After the major success of WHEC 2016 and the last editions of EHEC (2005, 2014, and 2018), the Spanish Hydrogen Association (AeH2) has taken on the organization of EHEC 2022 to continue boosting the use of hydrogen technologies worldwide. This coming edition counts on the esteemed collaboration and support of the European Hydrogen Association (EHA), Hydrogen Europe (HE), Hydrogen Europe Research, Hydrogen Technology Collaboration Programme (IEA Hydrogen TCP), International Association for Hydrogen Energy (IAHE), International Journal of Hydrogen Energy (IJHE), Institute for the Diversification and Saving of Energy (IDAE) and the Community of Madrid.

EHEC provides an excellent framework for updates on hydrogen energy technologies. The perfect setting to showcase advances in R&D projects and products. It will bring together the latest breakthroughs in research and business to stakeholders from a worldwide audience. Additionally, the conference will facilitate the presentation of cutting-edge technologies in electrolysis and fuel cell science for strategic business collaborations to arise.

At the core of EHEC's main objectives, is to encourage and facilitate networking, create meaningful connections, and foster business opportunities. The conference will enable networking spaces and multiple side events for professionals to explore synergies and potential collaboration opportunities.

EHEC 2022 will shelter a wide range of scientific, technological, and strategic sessions: plenary sessions on the most relevant aspects of worldwide strategies and technological developments, parallel sessions to present leading research breakthroughs, and poster presentations on cutting-edge research topics. Additionally, EHEC 2022 will host engaging side events and an exclusive trade fair, a space for industry and research institutions to promote their latest products and services.

This new edition of the European Hydrogen Energy Conference will take place during an incredible momentum for hydrogen globally, as the hydrogen economy is currently being shaped. EHEC 2022 will be a meeting point for experts worldwide to discuss the best course of action for hydrogen technologies to achieve their full potential.
