Wikborg Rein has the pleasure of inviting you to a seminar on hydrogen.

Hydrogen is the new buzz-word. Both the EU and the Norwegian government have presented their respective hydrogen strategies. The EU is busy developing a new regulatory framework adjusted to facilitate production, transport, trade and use of hydrogen. The Norwegian government has presented a road map focusing on pilot projects, technology development and the gradual development of a domestic hydrogen market. A broad range of projects are in the pipeline or already up and running. Our seminar focuses on the practical and legal issues that have to be kept in mind when successfully developing hydrogen projects – and a functioning hydrogen market, drawing on our experience and expertise from related sectors along the hydrogen value chain.
