ESTONIAN HYDROGEN DAYS 2021
Make a Difference Today
The Estonian Hydrogen Days 2021 have been successfully implemented by now. The event was held for the first time and was very successful. We had over 700 visits. We would like to thank all the speakers and guests who contributed to the Estonian Hydrogen Days 2021. We would like to especially thank the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Estonia.
During the two intensive days, the developments in the field of hydrogen in Europe and Estonia were introduced, the activities related to hydrogen in the scientific world were discussed and the focus was on the use of hydrogen in aviation.
Video broadcasts of both days can be watched here:

ESTONIAN HYDROGEN DAYS 2021 AT A GLANCE
Seminar, Expo and Science Days: 5-6 of July
Location: Tartu, Estonia
In the beginning of July and in the Culture Capital of Europe 2024, we will all come together to hold the first Hydrogen Days of the region.
The event will focus on an essential part of the climate neutrality goals - hydrogen and the part that European institutions, governments, municipalities, industry stakeholders, energy cooperatives and the people themselves will play in achieving our ambitious goals.
The event is an opportunity to walk through the entire value chain and learn about the technologies and plans that will contribute towards giving us all cleaner air, generating new opportunities, but also challenges. However, these can only be solved by bringing everyone together.
We aim to do all this in two activity-packed days:
5th of July: Seminar and Expo Day – Including presentations, announcements, technology showcases and thought-provoking panel discussions from Estonia and Europe. Walking through the entire ecosystem from the transport and energy sectors to rail, maritime and aviation.
A world’s first – Hydrogen Self-driving bus
High level Keynotes
6th of July: Science Day – The University of Tartu will cover all R&D topics, latest developments and share a sneak peek into what is yet to come.
Open mic “Ask us Anything” to a high-level scientific panel.
Tour of the hydrogen demo centre – from green electricity to green hydrogen and everything in-between
Expo: 5th of July and running activities
Toyota Mirai 2021 Presentation
A hydrogen car running taxi services all week in a special category (Bolt)
Hydrogen self-driving bus
Mobile hydrogen refuelling station
Hydrogen workshop & technologies
Additional demo and tech area to be announced.
