As a first step, together with the HLDE secretariat, Denmark, the Netherlands, Chile and Germany facilitated a workshop where stakeholders with a strong focus on green hydrogen were introduced to the concept of Energy Compacts. At the workshops experts from IRENA, World Economic Forum, Rocky Mountain Institute and the team of the COP High Level Champions for Global Climate Action:
- provided an overview of the ‘state of play’ of the green hydrogen agenda and ecosystem,
- led a discussion on required commitments and implementation measures,
- helped to develop specific examples for Energy Compacts that materially advance progress toward the 2026 and 2030 breakthrough outcomes
In this way, the workshop was an opportunity for stakeholders from different countries and sectors to begin to ideate and test specific Compacts that help align stakeholders on addressing critical gaps, challenges and opportunities in the policy and market environment. These Compacts are intended to be measurable and actionable bases for individual or collaborative action on key leverage points to accelerate development of end-to-end value chains beginning in 2022.
