World’s largest exhibition and conference supporting the gas, liquefied natural gas (LNG), hydrogen, and energy industry, Gastech will be held in Dubai from September 21 to 23, 2021.

The event is organized by the leading international exhibitions and publishing company, dmg events, and it is supported by the Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure in the UAE.

According to the statement, Gastech will have its own dedicated Hydrogen event, which will promote hydrogen as a clean energy solution. Gastech Hydrogen will bring together policymakers, producers, consumers, and suppliers to help the hydrogen sector flourish.

Further, Gastech Hydrogen will act as a global forum for industry experts to connect and discuss their efforts toward low- and zero-carbon fuels, which will play a key part in the transition to a new energy landscape.

Hydrogen is an increasingly popular kind of sustainable energy with enormous growth potential, having been identified as a major solution to climate change and the urgency of decarbonization. Gastech Hydrogen will offer a spotlight on this fast-emerging fuel source and enable firms from across the hydrogen value chain to exhibit the latest products, services, and solutions.

Mr. Lorenzo Simonelli, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of energy technology company Baker Hughes, sponsors of Gastech Hydrogen, will participate in an exclusive Gastech LIVE Session.

“We know that natural gas can both be a transition fuel and a destination fuel towards a lower carbon future. To decarbonize the energy sector, we must introduce more efficient and lower emissions technologies today for natural gas, while at the same time accelerate the adoption of carbon capture, utilization, and storage (CCUS), hydrogen, and energy storage. Only with scale can these technologies make a meaningful impact in the energy transition. It is encouraging to see such a strong focus on hydrogen at this year’s Gastech conference. The time for industry, governments, and partners to tap into the potential of hydrogen is now. Baker Hughes’ decades-long advancements in hydrogen technology position us as a key player in the energy transition and a collaborator to drive success.”

Gastech 2021 will take place at the Dubai World Trade Centre. It is expected to attract 20,000 people, including senior decision-makers and energy sector thought leaders, as well as more than 300 exhibitors, who will set the agenda for the global gas, LNG, hydrogen, and energy industries.
