In this session, Timo Bollerhey (H2Global/CEO of Hintco GmbH) will provide a comprehensive overview of how the H2Global funding instrument operates. Following that, experts from the hydrogen industry will join him in a critical discussion of the current H2Global design. The objective is to evaluate the extent to which the current design contributes to market ramp-up by creating liquidity and price signals. The discussion will also explore additional design options that could be considered for the future, such as long-term offtake contracts on the demand side.

The German Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Association (Deutscher Wasserstoff- und Brennstoffzellen-Verband e.V., DWV) has been advocating a sustainable hydrogen and fuel cell industry since 1996.  
It focuses on building a green hydrogen market economy as part of a sustainable energy supply infrastructure. Through our work we help achieve the climate goals efficiently while protecting our energy supply and the status of Germany as an industrial nation. Hydrogen produced using renewable energy plays a key role in achieving this.  
The activities of our association centre around implementing and optimising the right environment for the hydrogen economy in terms of market economics, technology and regulatory law, particularly in the areas of hydrogen generation, equipment engineering, gas and transport infrastructure and application technologies. To address these challenges globally, DWV supports international sustainable collaboration. With more than 450 individual and 150 institutional members, the Association represents more than 1.5 million jobs in all of Germany and consequently a substantial portion of the German national economy.

We are:
An industry network comprising around 220 companies, universities and institutions of the renewables industry as well as the hydrogen economy in the Hamburg metropolitan area.
