The role of hydrogen
The event closes with an increase in the number of events (120 in attendance) compared to the 2018 edition (the last in attendance before the stop for the pandemic).
From the numerous discussion tables, the central role that hydrogen will have in the coming years in the process of decarbonization and in achieving energy independence emerged.
Unanimous belief that research and development of technologies based on this solution is essential in order to diversify the mix of energy sources. From Mite to Aeneas, hydrogen is considered a powerful solution in the energy system of the future, because it is a “stabilizer” of renewables and an “enabler” of other solutions that are being implemented.
“This edition of MCE – Mostra Convegno Expocomfort 2022 https://mcexpocomfort.it/ was perhaps the most engaging. It has taken on the value of being that of restarting and of the enthusiasm of returning to presence in events of this magnitude. It saw the involvement of speakers, institutions and all the operators alongside the companies, who actively participated, testifying how it was necessary to create culture and business around the domestic and work spheres, now more than ever at the center of attention of all of us – said Massimiliano Pierini, managing director of Reed Exhibitions Italia -. As never before, the protagonists of this edition have been the exhibitors, who believed in the project, in its strategic role as a hub for the entire sector and for the relaunch of companies, confirming their presence and increasing the moments of discussion. and comparison “.
