Past event: Learn more about renewables and hydrogen infrastructure in the Baltic Sea Region

Excited about renewables and hydrogen? Join this exclusive seminar to learn more about the frontier energy sources from the Nordics' top doers in the sector.

The Nordics is one of the world’s most prominent regions when it comes to green energy and hydrogen adoption in particular. Estonia, famously, debuted a world’s first nationwide Hydrogen Valley. Now there’s an opportunity to lean more about this frontier energy source.

On May 8th, a seminar on the growth of renewable energy and the need for hydrogen infrastructure in the Baltic Sea Region, will take place in the Estonian Parliament conference hall in Tallinn.

It will focus on BalticSeaH2, an EU-led project focusing on creating a hydrogen valley between Southern Finland and Estonia. The project has identified renewable energy sources and aims to facilitate discussions on designing essential hydrogen infrastructure in the Baltic Sea Region. The seminar will address renewable energy production and the design of a hydrogen network to accommodate this growth, and can also be attended online.
