Hear from Italian experts in the industry about what their companies are doing with hydrogen and what they see as the potential for hydrogen technologies. Stay for networking sessions on each day to enjoy some beverages and Italian hospitality.

Hydrogen as a fuel source has held promise for the power industry for decades but has struggled to gain a foothold, mainly due to the high cost of producing it. However, with today’s focus on efficiency, clean energy and zero-emissions, hydrogen is experiencing a renaissance. Major companies across the globe, such as Caterpillar, GE, Man Energy Solutions, Ansaldo and others are exploring how they can use hydrogen to produce power.
