World Hydrogen North America doubles in size to keep pace with exponential growth of hydrogen industry

  • Houston, Texas plays host to World Hydrogen North America conference and exhibition May 21st-23rd
  • Exceptional speaker program to include hydrogen trailblazers
  • Tailored program dedicated to addressing US and Canadian hydrogen challenges, exploring solutions, and seizing opportunities.

London, UK – April 15, 2024: World Hydrogen Leaders announce that the “World Hydrogen North America 2024” congress and exhibition will be taking place in Houston, Texas from May 21st- 23rd. Mirroring the rapidly accelerating progress across the North American hydrogen landscape, the program has doubled in size from 2023 and will see key players across the hydrogen value chain gather to align on solutions to current challenges.

A report from the Deloitte Center for Sustainable Progress identified the potential for hydrogen growing from USD 642 billion by 2030, to USD 980 billion by 2040, and USD 1.4 trillion by 2050. But with such opportunity come challenges that need to be urgently addressed.

The 3-day event is one of the largest and most influential in the industry and will host over 1,200 attendees from organisations across the US and Canada. Representing the top hydrogen minds, over 200 renowned industry speakers will oversee panel discussions and round tables on dozens of critical hydrogen topics - and back by popular demand, a full day of masterclasses which will deeply dive into priority issues including the IRA, derivatives, electrolyzers, safety and more. Additionally, the conference will address whether the current policy levels for the US and Canada are adequate to instigate the rapid scale-up needed, as well as enlightening case studies from Texas and California.

“As the energy capital of the world, Houston sits at the epicenter of the global hydrogen landscape,” said Nadim Chaudhry, Chief Executive Officer, World Hydrogen Leaders. “The city brims with leading hydrogen experts and innovation ecosystems, so is the perfect venue for this influential gathering of industry leaders. And with 80 percent of speakers and attendees at VP, director or C-level roles, World Hydrogen North America has demonstrated that it not only attracts seasoned experts within the industry, but those with the capacity for real decision-making.”

The keynote speakers are well recognised hydrogen trailblazers and include Katrina Fritz, President & CEO, California Hydrogen Business Council; Frank Wolak, President and Chief Executive Officer, Fuel Cell and Hydrogen Energy Association and Daniel Dus, CEO, United States, ACME, among many others.

The hydrogen and clean energy sectors in North America have experienced an unprecedented surge over the last year, marked by significant policy shifts including the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law and Inflation Reduction Act in the U.S., and the Clean Hydrogen Investment Tax Credit in Canada,” said Katrina Fritz President & CEO, California Hydrogen Business Council. “However, to address evolving regulations and required development of the supply chain, collaboration between industry leaders is imperative.”

Southern Manufacturing & Electronics: Industrial innovation at its best

Merging the worlds of mechanical engineering and electronics every year at the Farnborough International Exhibition Centre, Southern Manufacturing & Electronics is the UK's most comprehensive annual industrial exhibition. Next year’s event, which will take place from 6th to 8th February, will play a pivotal role as a pan-European showcase for cutting-edge technology.

From early beginnings in 1997, the show has progressed to become a truly international event and next year there will be more participation by overseas firms than ever before. As stand space was filling up so rapidly with several months to go, the organisers expanded the footprint to accommodate the demand.

Visitors will find many hundreds of stands packed with the latest machine tools, tooling, workholding equipment, automation, inspection and testing solutions, PCB design, business and engineering software, and myriad electromechanical, electrical, electronic, hydraulic and pneumatic components and equipment, plus subcontract manufacturing offerings of all types.

Other no less essential products and services on offer will encompass oil and coolant supply, workshop equipment, dust and fume extraction, humidity control, workplace storage systems, bespoke case and foam manufacture, plastic packaging, injection moulding, hand tools, adhesives, waste removal and recycling, training, freight services and both financial and legal consultancy. The show is likewise a great destination for researching production and planning aids. The incredibly diverse array of exhibitors allows attendees to tackle a multitude of sourcing issues in one visit.

In a world grappling with challenges such as skills shortage, supply chain disruptions, soaring energy costs and higher taxation, the exhibition will spotlight mitigating themes such as automation, Industry 4.0, reshoring of production, green energy, and power-saving machinery. Additive manufacturing, a technology evolving towards mainstream production, will also feature prominently.

As a complement to the exhibition, an extensive technical seminar programme will run over the three days. Presentations will cover a wide array of topics, one of which will feature Tim Harrison from The CE Marking Association, who will give a brief introduction to product compliance and the six steps necessary to fulfil the requirements. The talk will look at a some of the more common legislation as well as various nuances and pitfalls before focusing on Brexit and its impact on UK and European manufacturers, importers and distributors.

Anna Lothsson, who is sustainability director of NCAB, a leading producer of printed circuit boards, will review the steps the group is taking to create a more sustainable industry, while maintaining growth and profitability. She will explain how the company continuously works to optimise resource usage, minimise waste and decrease pollution. Her message to all manufacturers, particularly those in the electronics sector, is that adopting sustainable practices can lead to cost savings, increased efficiency and improved brand reputation, making it an economically viable choice.

Recognised for independent UKAS-accredited EMC (electromagnetic compatibility) and electrical safety testing, as well as offering IP (ingress protection) testing for products, Kiwa Electrical Compliance’s laboratory in Blackwood, South Wales has expanded its test services by uniting with RN Electronics. The company will be present to promote its merged and expanded offering, which means that EMC, radio and electrical safety testing can now be carried out under one roof, helping customers to meet the relevant EU directives and regulations for UKCA and CE marking.

Southern Manufacturing & Electronics 2024 will co-locate with AutoAero, a specialised theme within the exhibition dedicated to aerospace and automotive engineering. Free admission and parking make this event easily accessible to all and a complimentary bus service runs between Farnborough’s railway stations and the showground.
