Episode 5, Local initiatives & opportunities: GBA and YRD region
第五期 地区倡议和机遇:大湾区和长三角地区

With both China and the Netherlands looking at alternative and greener ways for energy storage, applications and production, both countries are more and more focusing on hydrogen as a solution to the current energy problems. What is hydrogen, what policies do China and the Netherlands have, what are the major projects from the private sector and what’s the focus of the main research institutes and universities. In this series of 5 webinars we try to address these issues and give an in-depth analysis into the hydrogen sector from several angles with expert speakers from China and the Netherlands.

In this fifth and final episode we’ll introduce in-depth China’s major hydrogen projects and address the local opportunities and initiatives. Our co-organizer, UNDP, will be speaking again to give a general introduction, plus several Chinese cities with a more detailed introduction of their current policies and projects.
