Europe seeks to lead on green hydrogen

2019-10-21

The European Commission (EC) has unveiled a new initiative, in partnership with the industry association Hydrogen Europe, to promote production of green hydrogen across the European Union. The aim is to generate hydrogen via renewable-energy-powered water electrolysis for use as a carbon-free fuel and chemical raw material.

The initiative will feature at least eight substantial green hydrogen projects to be implemented in the next 5–10 years. They will require a combined investment of more than $67 billion, according to Hydrogen Europe. A substantial part of the investment would go toward increasing solar and wind energy capacity to provide the needed electricity. Some of the money is set to come from the European Commission and national governments, with the rest from companies.
