Venice hydrogen Forum 

The Mediterranean forum on hydrogen: infrastructure, offtake, finance and energy security


18-19 Oct


The Green Hydrogen Organisation and the Venice Sustainability Foundation, together with institutional and industrial partners look forward to welcoming key players to Venice this autumn.

The Forum is a CEO and senior executive two-day international meeting focused on strategies for the transport and trade of hydrogen and its derivatives by pipeline and other means, to foster discussion across the Mediterranean and other European actors and develop a conducive environment for future agreements and joint actions. GH2 and VSF are working together with institutions and energy companies to establish the Forum for the first time in the city’s historical centre.

Italy’s Deputy Minister of the Environment and Energy Security Vannia Gava expressed support for the Forum at a meeting with GH2 Chair Malcolm Turnbull together with VSF Director General Alessandro Costa and GH2 CEO Jonas Moberg during COP28 in Dubai at the Global Renewables Hub.

 international trade hub

Venice has been a significant hub for international trade for hundreds of years. It is therefore fitting that the inaugural Venice Hydrogen Forum becomes the meeting place for leading energy companies active in the Mediterranean gas market, governments from North Africa, South Europe, and the Middle East as well as renewable energy and green hydrogen developers, pipeline operators, European customers, and public and private financial institutions.

the challenge

Europe needs millions of tonnes of hydrogen urgently and one of the most efficient ways to do this is to import it through pipelines.
