One of the key research focuses for 2022 will be on water electrolysis systems and optimising the technology to ensure that sufficient quantities of hydrogen yields can support the growing market.
The partnership has said that funding will increase cost reduction and efficiency for a variety of renewable hydrogen production routes, with water electrolysis being the main technology supported.
Furthermore, an EU-wide logistical infrastructure will be developed to transport hydrogen from areas with large renewable potential to demand centres across Europe.
This could be a crucial development for Europe as hydrogen hotspots begin to be interconnected creating a backbone that supplies steady flows of hydrogen to its end users.
With the EU providing funding until 2027 it is clear that further research and innovations will be explored in the coming years as the hydrogen sector continues to expand.
North American Hydrogen Summit
H2 View is taking its events platform to America’s original clean hydrogen hub of California. Together with the California Fuel Cell Partnership (CaFCP), we will stage our North American Hydrogen Summit in San Francisco on July 14-15.
As our summit theme Building Bridges: Hydrogen hubs and investment suggests, the event will explore the $8bn of funding announced to create at least four regional hydrogen hubs in the US. These hubs will turbo-charge the nation’s progress toward heavy trucking and industrial sectors that run without producing carbon pollution – and they may just provide the path forward to a hydrogen-fuelled future.
With California and Texas vying to be America’s hydrogen capital today, where are the hubs of tomorrow? Further still, what can other states, and countries, learn from California’s success story? And how can we build bridges to a successful flow of international investment?
