TÜV SÜD Polska as the Content Partner of the 1st Central European Hydrogen Technology Forum H2POLAND


H2POLAND is the first such a large event in Poland entirely devoted to hydrogen technologies. On 17 and 18 May 2022, Poznań will turn into the hydrogen capital of Poland. Representatives of the government, local government units, entrepreneurs, innovators, the scientific community and entities open to modern, environmentally friendly technologies will meet to discuss the most important topics for building the hydrogen economy.

TÜV SÜD is a global service provider in the field of quality, safety and sustainable development. For over 150 years, specialists from TÜV SÜD have marked their contribution to further technological transformations. After the time of steam, electricity and computers, TÜV SÜD is a trusted business partner focused on new technologies and innovative solutions of the fourth industrial revolution, increasingly powered by hydrogen.

TÜV SÜD Polska is involved in projects related to fuel transformation and the use of hydrogen as fuel in private and public transport. Experts from TÜV SÜD Polska prepared many analyses, expert opinions and feasibility studies, they also worked on a sectoral agreement for the development of the hydrogen economy in Poland. The document was signed in October 2021 and is an executive element of the Polish Hydrogen Strategy. At the end of 2021, TÜV SÜD Polska signed a letter of intent regarding the establishment of the first Agricultural Hydrogen Valley in Europe. − It is true that Poland is one of the main producers of hydrogen today, but let us not forget that in order for hydrogen to be widely used, it is necessary to prepare an appropriate infrastructure for it and, above all, to introduce appropriate legal changes. I believe that events such as H2POLAND will be milestones for all entities involved in the production and use of hydrogen − says Paweł Piotrowicz, TÜV SÜD Polska’s expert on energy and hydrogen technologies. The company offers comprehensive services addressed to the entire value chain of the hydrogen economy and all supporting sectors related to security, administration and expert services. − Although 2050 may seem like a distant perspective, with the amount of changes that await us on the way to a modern and climate-neutral economy, time is really short. I am convinced that thanks to Partners such as TÜV SÜD Polska, the H2POLAND Forum will be not only a substantively valuable event, but a real catalyst for change − says Joanna Kucharska, Product Group Director at Grupa MTP.

The subject of H2POLAND is part of the concept of the European Green Deal, which will be largely based on the development of hydrogen technologies. Sessions devoted to the safety of using hydrogen, certification and certificates of origin will be conducted by experts from TÜV SÜD Polska.

The 1st Central European Hydrogen Technology Forum H2POLAND will be held on 17-18 May 2022 on MTP Poznań Expo fairgrounds.
