Live Talk

Hydrogen economy

In conversation with Wiebke Lüke

25 May 2022
3:00 to 3:30 p.m.

Wiebke Lüke is founder and managing director of WEW GmbH. She was responsible for the development of water electrolysis technologies at the Research Center Jülich and led the largest sustainability project at a major international corporation.

In the last two years, climate targets have been tightened worldwide. Within this context, hydrogen has emerged as a promising climate-neutral energy carrier. For example, more than 25 countries have published hydrogen roadmaps in the last one and a half years. In addition, various studies have been published by different institutions to support the development of a hydrogen economy.

In this live talk, we asked Wiebke Lüke how much hydrogen will be needed worldwide to achieve climate neutrality, how hydrogen can be produced in a climate-neutral way, which areas of the hydrogen value chain must develop as quickly as possible, and how much time we have left for this to happen.
