Shearman & Sterling was delighted to sponsor the 2nd Annual World Hydrogen Congress, which took place October 4-6, 2021. This event was a platform for more than 200 thought leaders and 800 attendees to discuss the future of hydrogen.

Partner Dan Feldman spoke on a panel alongside FCH Europe, Ernst & Young, European Investment Bank, AP Ventures and Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets discussing “Making hydrogen bankable – is it really a winning proposition?”

Themes of the session included:

  • Where is financing coming from? Funding streams and rules
  • How much is actually being invested? Is it public or private investment?
  • What will it take for investors to broaden their horizon to H2?
  • What factors make for a proper commercial rate of return? Steps to ensure a hydrogen revenue model
  • Creating the right legal framework and business model to guarantee certainty in investment
  • What are the advantages of first movers?
