We caught up with Sabet ahead of the event, set to be held on March 15, to find out more about what we can expect to hear from his presentation, and what he thinks we need to see to make hydrogen happen.

We’re looking forward to hearing you talk at H2 View’s Virtual Hydrogen Summit Europe 2022. Can you give us a teaser of what we can expect from your presentation?

Michelin and like-minded organisations are involved in projects all over the world that show what a huge opportunity hydrogen mobility offers. We will share four concrete initiatives that we hope will inspire end encourage.

Our summit theme is A Climate for Action and Investment: Making Hydrogen Happen. As we move towards scale, now is the time to double down on the action and investment required – widely seen as the last piece of the puzzle for the hydrogen economy. What does this action and investment need to look like in your opinion?

Economic growth is directly linked to dealing with the climate emergency, but action and investment also need to target a just transition to zero. We have to take the opportunity to improve social and economic mobility as well as physical mobility.

Where do you think the opportunities are for hydrogen? And conversely, where do you think the challenges are?

Hydrogen can help decarbonise industry and transport, but there are no silver bullets. Different technologies can solve different challenges – and working together they can be doubly effective.

What’s one thing you think we need to see to make hydrogen happen?

Genuine co-operation and co-ordination. Co-operation and co-ordination between governments, across government departments, across international boundaries and across every sector of business.
