Leuphana Energy Forum 2021 - "Industry on the way to climate neutrality".

Leuphana Energy Forum 2021 - "Industry on the way to climate neutrality".

Under the title "Industry on the way to climate neutrality", Leuphana University Lüneburg together with the Climate Protection and Energy Agency of Lower Saxony (KEAN) invites you to the ninth Energy Forum on 08.09.2021.

Germany and the other member states of the European Union have set themselves the goal of becoming climate neutral by 2050. Major efforts are needed in industry to achieve this. Pressure is also coming from financing banks and other financial market players. It is clear what is technically necessary, including the expansion of renewable energies, electrification and higher energy efficiency, the use of (green) hydrogen and the strengthening of the circular economy and material efficiency.

The event provides a forum to discuss the legal, economic, technical and social issues associated with the transformation of industry towards climate neutrality with academia and practitioners.

Hydrogen lighthouse projects in Lower Saxony

In the afternoon from 14:00, the Lower Saxony Hydrogen Network will present and discuss lighthouse projects with representatives from industry and demonstrate the importance of green hydrogen for Lower Saxony. As an energy state, Lower Saxony has the best prerequisites to become a leader in the production and supply of green hydrogen. Two current large-scale projects from the steel industry and wastewater treatment illustrate the importance of hydrogen for the region and the transformation of the economy.

The event is supported by the cooperation partners Deutscher Gewerkschaftsbund (DGB), the Unternehmerverbände Niedersachsen (UVN) and the ECOLOG Institute for Social-Ecological Research and Education.

Participation is free of charge. Registration takes place directly via Leuphana University.
