The multinational electric utility firm on Wednesday (April 13) confirmed such ambitions with the release of its Hydrogen Plan that outlines its goal of being one of Europe’s hydrogen production leaders.

In order to achieve its goals, EDF said it will take full advantage of the expertise of its R&D, which has involved hydrogen for many years.

Jean-Bernard Levy, Chairman and CEO of EDF, said, “The EDF Group is announcing today the launch of its Hydrogen Plan, a new and essential step towards the objective of carbon neutrality.

“Low-carbon hydrogen is an essential lever for reducing our dependence on fossil fuels alongside the direct electrification of end uses. With this ambitious plan and by capitalising on its expertise and know-how, the EDF Group intends to contribute to the emergence of a strong and innovative European hydrogen industry.”
