At the Hydrogen & Green Gases Forum organized by Energypress, Dr. Panagiotis Zervas, Director of Research and Development at MES ENERGY S.A., described the integration of hydrogen into the energy market and the transportation sector as an ‘inevitable path.’
In his statement, following the conference, he noted:
“It’s a great event. It is quite touching for those of us who have been involved in the hydrogen sector for at least 25 years, to see that all these people have gathered here and there is a significant investment interest. During our academic years, someone said that ‘hydrogen was, is, and will be the future.’ Finally, the time has come, and it is here.
As a company, we take immense pride in being the ones who constructed the first Hydrogen Refuelling Station (HRS) in Greece, at the facilities of EKEFE Demokritos. Therefore, we are additionally delighted with the progress and the growing interest in this field.
According to the national hydrogen strategy’s plans and the willingness of the political leadership, we believe that moving towards the hydrogen sector and integrating it into transportation is an unavoidable path. Hydrogen is not only beneficial for the environment but also contributes to the country’s energy security.
We hope to see more Hydrogen Refuelling Stations. The European target for our country is to have 26 by 2025. Although it presents challenges, having Hydrogen Refuelling Stations every 150-200 kilometers along the national roads is crucial. I believe it is a one-way road, and we will witness it.”
