Hydrogen “An Ideal Solution” for the Energy Crisis, Experts at Zappeion Conference Claim

November 7, 2022

ATHENS – Hydrogen is emerging as an ideal solution for dealing with the energy crisis, but also for energy autonomy in the near future, according to speakers at a conference organised at the Zappeion Mansion by Hydrogen Europe.

They noted that it can render Greece a central hub and protagonist in this sector – as long as there are the required investments and institutional interventions.

The debate on hydrogen was in the foreground as a response to the energy crisis and climate neutrality, Deputy Minister of Infrastructure and Transport Michalis Papadopoulos stated in his opening speech, while he also highlighted the contribution of the state as essential for the construction of the required infrastructure for the effective development of the market.

As he explained, transport bears a large share of responsibility for air pollution, but at the same time it is particularly burdened by energy costs. “Hydrogen can be a decisive factor for the energy transition, while it can create a significant number of new jobs,” he stressed.


ATHENS - A memorandum of understanding (MoU) for the electric grid networks of Greece and Egypt, known as the Greece-Africa Power Interconnector (GAP), was signed in Athens by Houston-based McDermott International and Athens-based Eunice Energy Group.
