Between the Rhine and Ruhr rivers - Hydrogen for the green transformation. Where do we stand?”


OGE's Energiepolitischer Dialog is returning to the Ruhr region and to a historic location that stands for the successful transformation of the Ruhr region like no other - the Zollverein Coal Mine Industrial Complex. Today, it is a future campus that provides the link to the new energy world.

Together with high-calibre guests from policy making, society and industry, we want to get into a conversation: about the current status of the green transformation with a focus on the hydrogen ramp-up on the Rhine and Ruhr rivers. Specifically, the main focus will be on the implementation status of the H2 core grid and the next steps that need to be taken. In particular, we would like to discuss the question of how the necessary imports of hydrogen can reach us via Belgium, the Netherlands and other European partners and be used by North Rhine-Westphalian industry.

The panelists will be:
  • Mona Neubaur Minister for Economic Affairs, Industry, Climate Action and Energy and Deputy Primier of North Rhine-Westphalia
  • Dr. Sopna Sury Member of the Executive Board of RWE Generation SEl
  • Yvonne Ruf Senior Partner in Regulated & Infrastructure division, Roland Berger
  • Professor Marc Bettzüge Director of the Institute of Energy Economics at the University of Cologne (EWI)
  • Dr. Jörg Bergmann Chairman of the Management Board, OGE
  • Moderation: Ina Böttcher Freelance Journalist

Please note that the Energiepolitische Dialog will be held in German only.

If you would like to participate nonetheless, we would be pleased to receive your registration here.
