This workshop’s objective is to discuss and collect feedback on these two types of auctions and their possible design aspects.
The workshops will take place on November 21st, 2022, in a hybrid format. Please find here a preliminary agenda for the day.
There will be an introductory session, followed by two 3h-workshops on CfDs for hydrogen production and CCfDs for hydrogen uptake for industry decarbonisation, respectively.
