2nd Hydrogen Summit for the Caribbean (H2-Caribbean 2024)

The launch of a H2-Caribbean in 2023 saw a sell-out crowd and a packed house. H2-Caribbean 2024 will again gather upstream and downstream players to explore the viability and potential of green hydrogen to bolster and transform regional economies.

The big question on the table: can we look to regionally-produced green hydrogen to ensure energy security in the Caribbean and move away from the import of fossil fuels?

What are the Caribbean’s competitive advantages? How will we produce H2 and at what cost? Is there a regional market for Caribbean H2 and what infrastructure do we need to store and distribute it? What is the price tag and who will pick it up?

Ultimately: can we build a decarbonizing, economy-lifting, competitiveness-driving industry for the region?

Participants will include Caribbean policy-makers, utility CEOs, development banks, and leading H2 industry experts and investors.
