Poland looks at hydrogen as a solution to its energy problems

 Poland is rapidly approaching the energy revolution. No wonder then that it is the energy sector that will be one of the key topics raised by experts during the upcoming economic event in northern Poland - the 4th Development Vision Forum. A crucial element of this year's talks will be, among others the enormous potential of hydrogen.

Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki announced the creation of a 'hydrogen valley' in Silesia - a place where fuel cells and hydrogen buses will be produced, and low-emission hydrogen will be used on a large scale. There are to be at least five such valleys and there is no doubt that - considering the extensive program of offshore wind energy development - at least one of them will be in Pomerania.

- Hydrogen may be the future of our economy, the future for Silesia, which will slowly say goodbye to coal as a mineral, which we treat as a product for combustion and energy. But also, for Pomerania in connection with the planned development of wind energy - says Adam Gawęda, member of the Polish Parliament.

We are talking about switching entire industries to hydrogen. Experts will talk about the potential of hydrogen, among others during the Water - Hydrogen - Coal Convention carried out jointly with BGK Bank. The fourth edition of the Development Vision Forum will be held on August 26-27 at the Naval Academy in Gdynia.
