In the instance, the challenges that have the projects that are being located in the country and what is the national and international outlook for the production of green hydrogen were presented.

Asunción Borrás, Vice President of the Chilean Hydrogen Association, H2 Chile, noted the significant attendance and growing interest in the green hydrogen industry. In the panel, she stressed that “we are all clear and we know the challenges that the development of the industry has. We need to generate domestic demand as an initial trigger and as an incentive for investment, otherwise it is very difficult to achieve competitiveness. In particular, he referred to the logistical challenges and the need to orchestrate shared infrastructure. We want to grow with the region, but obviously we want to do it in a meaningful way, not replicating each one a port or a transmission line. It must be something optimizable for the territory”. In this sense, Borrás showed a positive vision of the future of the industry: “We have a commitment to develop it. It requires hard work and we are willing to do it. I believe that the entire sector and companies have reaffirmed our commitment to the country to make this happen”. For his part, Juan Pablo Fiedler, Colbun’s green hydrogen manager, stressed that to achieve growth “it is important the collaboration between the different developers in all the companies that are driving this industry. The same with the collaboration with the State, and this instance of convening the entire industry for three days is very important to move forward in this collaboration and to continue promoting this challenge. The day continued with Panel 5: “New uses and applications of green hydrogen in mining, transportation, logistics and other industries”, with speakers Andrés Palomino, Country Manager Energy Industries Division Chile, ABB; Denis Girault, CEO, Alstom; Ignacio Pérez, Director Business Development at First Mode; Diego Fernández, General Manager ULOG Chile and director ULOG LATAM; and Dr. Stefan Kaufmann, Hydrogen Executive Adviser, Thyssenkrupp. Also during the conference, the possibilities were analyzed according to international advances, both in terms of technology and public policies. After the presentation, Denis Girault, CEO of Alstom, commented: “We discussed the use of green hydrogen in various industries, such as mining, logistics industry, robotics, and there are several potential applications for vehicles in the country. This shows that Chile is made to be the supplier of green hydrogen worldwide and we want to see how we can have a local application that also leverages the global situation,” he concluded.
