The webinar proposed a debate on the strategies and actions that financial institutions can take to accelerate the transition process towards a low carbon economy. The following topics were presented:

• Analysis of green hydrogen projects currently underway in different geographies, their characteristics and advantages. Main risks and/or challenges for their financing and how they can be addressed / mitigated.
• Assessment of the differences between financing these types of projects versus other energy generation projects. Types of viable/available financing structures and their sources of finance.
• Importance of accurate and agreed diagnoses of energy market needs.
• Analysis of renewable energy alternatives and in particular the potential of green hydrogen. Measurement of potential impacts.
• The role of regulators and government agents: the need for appropriate regulatory frameworks according to the projects.
