CLOSING CEREMONY

19h45 - 22h00 Hôtel de Paris, Monte-Carlo

GALA DINNER

Gala Dinner for the participants of the Monaco Hydrogen Forum - hosted by the Monaco Chamber of Shipping.

CMS

L’ère de l’hydrogène commence. L’élément le plus abondant de l’univers compte désormais parmi les vecteurs énergétiques les plus prometteurs pour une planète plus propre et plus durable. De vastes pans de l’activité humaine, de la production d’acier à la construction automobile en passant par le chauffage urbain et le stockage de l’énergie, sont en voie d’être décarbonisés grâce à l’utilisation croissante de l’hydrogène dans le monde.

Mais c’est sur le marché mondial des transports que l’utilisation de l’hydrogène – et plus particulièrement de l’hydrogène renouvelable ou vert – peut avoir le plus d’impact. Les voitures, les trains, les camions, les avions et les navires sont responsables de plus de 25 % de toutes les émissions de gaz à effet de serre dans le monde.  Même si l’industrie automobile abandonne les énergies fossiles pour des solutions plus propres, l’aviation et le transport maritime, par exemple, s’engagent à peine dans cette nouvelle mutation. La quasi-totalité du transport maritime utilise encore du diesel et des combustibles de soute qui polluent l’air et endommagent l’environnement marin.

Telle est la mission du Monaco Hydrogen Alliance : contribuer à développer et accélérer l’adoption de l’hydrogène renouvelable tout au long de la chaîne de valeur de la mobilité.  Cette mission est d’une importance capitale si nos sociétés et nos économies veulent vraiment atteindre les objectifs ambitieux de réduction des émissions de CO2 fixés par l’accord de Paris sur le climat. Grâce à une action concertée et un dialogue entre les principaux acteurs de la mobilité et des transports – tant publics que privés – l’Alliance vise à faire progresser et généraliser l’utilisation de l’hydrogène vert et de ses dérivés dans les transports.

La Principauté de Monaco et son chef d’État visionnaire, Son Altesse Sérénissime le Prince Albert II, ont toujours été leaders dans la lutte pour le développement durable de la planète et la préservation des océans.  L’engagement du Prince souverain qui place la Principauté au cœur de nombreux projets internationaux en faveur du développement durable, combiné à la position de Monaco au cœur de l’Europe et au centre de la Méditerranée, font de la Principauté l’hôte et le partenaire idéal pour le Monaco Hydrogen Alliance et le Monaco Hydrogen Forum.

Président, Monaco Hydrogen Alliance

The Age of Hydrogen is upon us. The most abundant element in the universe now holds out the tantalizing promise of being one of the most important keys to a cleaner and more sustainable planet. Vast swaths of human activity, from steel production and car-making to district heating and energy storage, will be decarbonized in the future by the increasing use of hydrogen around the world.

But it is in the global transportation sector where the use of hydrogen — and specifically renewable or green hydrogen — can have the most impact and the greatest promise. Cars, trains, trucks, planes, and ships account for well over 25% of all greenhouse emissions in the world. True, the global automotive industry is now finally shifting away from fossil fuels – but aviation and shipping, for example, have hardly started to move. Almost all maritime transportation still uses diesel and bunker fuel which pollute the air and damage the marine environment.

This is the mission of the Monaco Hydrogen Alliance: to help scale and accelerate the adoption of renewable hydrogen throughout the value-chain of mobility. This is critically important if our societies and economies are truly serious about reaching the robust targets of CO2 reduction set by the Paris Climate Agreement. Through common action and dialogue among leading stakeholders in mobility and transportation — both public and private — the Alliance aims to advance the adoption of green hydrogen and green hydrogen derivatives in transportation.

The Principality of Monaco and its visionary head of state, His Serene Highness Prince Albert II, have Iong been leaders in the fight for a more sustainable planet and strengthening the health and biodiversity of global oceans. This strong commitment, combined with Monaco’s position in the heart of Europe and in the center of the Mediterranean, makes the Principality the idea host and partner for the Monaco Hydrogen Alliance and the Monaco Hydrogen Forum.
