COP26 – Hydrogen related events

November 1st, 2021

See below for a list of hydrogen related events hosted by various countries at COP26, in case you are interested in attending.

This list was compiled by Mission Innovation – Clean Hydrogen Mission, an international initiative which CSIRO is contributing to, in close collaboration with the Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources.

Note the CSIRO/Australian led event on 9 November.


November 1, 10.00-12.00 BST, Korean Pavilion – Seminar on Clean Hydrogen Trade Initiative

Introducing Korea led efforts for cross-border supply chain initiative to promote global clean hydrogen trade and inviting key countries for participation, in alignment with the CEM Hydrogen Initiative’s working group on clean hydrogen supply chains and trade

The event will be held as a sideline to the Korea Exhibition Hall at the COP26, and it will be both physical and virtual (YouTube) through the following link:


November 3, 17.00-18.30 BST, Japan Pavilion – The role of hydrogen in the transition to net-zero

The event will discuss the role of hydrogen on the path towards net-zero emissions with representatives of IEA and its Hydrogen Technology Collaboration Programme (TCP), governments, Hydrogen Council, IPHE, CEM Initiative and others. A scene-setting presentation will introduce the key findings of the IEA Global Hydrogen Review, followed by an interactive roundtable discussion. The event will provide an opportunity to exchange diverse perspectives and explore the best options to promote hydrogen technologies to deliver net-zero emissions and clean energy transition.

This event will also be both physical and virtual (YouTube) through the following link:
