Commissioner for Energy Kadri Simson will be in Muscat on 13-15 December to participate in high-level conferences on hydrogen and build cooperation with Oman in this field.

On Wednesday 13 December, the Commissioner will open the EU-Oman Energy Forum dedicated to ‘Shaping the Future of Renewable Hydrogen Cooperation’ on the margins of the Green Hydrogen Summit Oman (GHSO), where she will discuss ‘EU-Oman Green Hydrogen Political Engagement and ways forward’, alongside the Undersecretary for Energy and Minerals of Oman, Mohnsin Al Hadhrami. On Thursday 14 December, the Commissioner will join the opening session of the Summit, and visit the hydrogen center of the German University of Oman, Gutech.
While in Oman, Commissioner Simson will also hold a bilateral meeting with the Chairman of the Public Authority for Special Economic Zones and Free Zones, Ali bin Masoud Al Sunaidy, and chair roundtable meetings with Omani and European energy companies.
