22nd World Hydrogen Energy Conference


  • Rio de Janiero Brazil (map)

The hydrogen world is coming to Rio de Janeiro

Why Rio?
In 1992 world leaders met in Rio de Janeiro for the United Nations Conference on environment and Development to create the vision of sustainable development as guideline for the 21st century. 26 years later world leading researchers and stakeholders will come to Rio de Janeiro for the main world conference about hydrogen energy, to discuss the most promising technologies towards sustainability.

Why Brazil?
Brazil is one of the leading countries worldwide in the use of regenerative energy in large scale. In 2016, 82,8 % of electricity was produced from renewable sources, offering a wide range of sources for a clean and sustainable hydrogen production.

Why WHEC?
The WORLD HYDROGEN ENERGY CONFERENCE is the opportunity for international and Brazilian communities to strengthen their global efforts on the path to sustainability. The dissemination of knowledge on hydrogen energy will foster the interest for the new scientific and technological activities. The size and characteristics of the Brazilian industry and its big markets offer excellent opportunities for global partnerships that can support the introduction of new technologies in commercial scale.
