Competing in Clean Tech: Towards an EU Clean Industrial Deal - Hydrogen Europe

On 12 June 2024, at 9:30-11:00 AM CEST, Hydrogen Europe will be co-hosting a session with Eurometaux at the Policy Conference of the European Sustainable Energy Week.

In a context where Europe’s ambitions are heavily challenged, this EUSEW session will positively contribute to the deployment and acceleration of a tangible industrial policy in the next legislative term, against the threat of further European deindustrialization and supply insecurities. Europe should not fall behind of competitors in the world’s clean technology race.

This session is echoing current political proposals that advocate for “an Industrial Deal alongside the Green Deal” to keep investments strong in Europe, fostering the economy, and added social value to it (development of skills, fostering employment…). In fact, the debate will underline, through open exchanges and concrete examples from key European clean tech sectors, the commitment of the European industry to the industrialisation challenge and its openness to discuss with the European Institutions and Member States on how to make the industrial policy a real leverage with adequate financing, faster permitting procedures, competitive energy prices, international level playing field and market incentives.
