Abstract

The EU and its member states have placed their bet on hydrogen to play a key role in decarbonising sectors where other alternative energy source seem less feasible regarding their fight against climate change. While state and private actors in Europe have engaged in various efforts to develop the infrastructure, technology, and political setting for hydrogen as alternative energy source, research has equally embarked on the topic recently. However, the internal and external dimensions and relations of the EU’s and its member states’ hydrogen strategies have been examined to a lesser extent. This panel seeks to bring together scholars who work on the topic of hydrogen in the abovementioned context. It aims to encourage research on its internal and external dimensions in terms of energy alliances with other states and regions, the potential of hydrogen import and export, governance and regulations, as well as the relations of Europe´s approach to hydrogen more generally.
