Join this EURACTIV Hybrid Conference to discuss the potential of CO2, H2 and O2 in decarbonising the EU’s energy sector and whether a consensus can be found for "the best strategy". Questions to be discussed include: - Which pathways will the use of CO2, H2 and O2 develop and in which sectors should their use be prioritised? - How can we ensure that the use of hydrogen will not result in new dependencies? - To what extent can carbon storage contribute to reducing the EU’s carbon footprint? Can carbon storage in the North Sea be an appropriate solution? - Where will the carbon needed for manufacturing come from? Is direct air capture a realistic future solution? - Is it realistic to almost double the gross electricity production of the EU to power the new energy system? - What is the added value of the Fit for 55 and REPowerEU packages? What should be the next steps in terms of legislative developments and initiatives? - What are the required conditions for European industry to maintain its competitiveness in developing new sustainable energy solutions? Can Europe lead America in this field?
