World Hydrogen Energy Conference
The 22nd edition of the WORLD HYDROGEN ENERGY CONFERENCE (WHEC) will take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from June 17 to 22, 2018, in the Windsor Convention & Expo Center at Barra da Tijuca. In 1992 world leaders met in Rio de Janeiro for the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development to create the vision of sustainable development as guideline for the 21st century. 26 years later, world leading researchers and stakeholders will come to Rio de Janeiro for the main world conference about hydrogen energy, to discuss the most promising technologies towards sustainability.
The WORLD HYDROGEN ENERGY CONFERENCE is the opportunity for international and Brazilian communities to strengthen their global efforts on the path to sustainability. The dissemination of knowledge on hydrogen energy will foster the interest for the new scientific and technological activities.
The size and characteristics of the Brazilian industry and its big markets offer excellent opportunities for global partnerships that can support the introduction of new technologies in commercial scale.
Conference participants will have the opportunity to visit the accompanying trade fair, where the Brazilian and world leaders in science, economy and industry will show their latest ideas and products. In addition to the conference and trade fair, several events will take place, such as: welcome reception, Brazilian Night, poster session, ride & drive, workshops, technical tours and touristic tours.
