The European Commission announces the Clean Hydrogen Alliance
Brussels, 10 March 2020 - The Commission presented today, 10 March 2020, a new European Industrial Strategy to help Europe's industry lead the transition towards climate neutrality and digital leadership.
The Strategy sets out the key drivers of Europe's industrial transformation and proposes a comprehensive set of future actions, including a Clean Hydrogen Alliance to accelerate the decarbonisation of industry and maintain industrial leadership.
Smart sector integration is a key part of the new strategy, as it aims to use all carriers of energy more effectively, by linking different sectors. Clean Hydrogen is a prime example of where this can have a real benefit. It is disruptive in nature and requires stronger coordination across the value chain.
The Alliance will bring investors together with governmental, institutional and industrial partners, building on the successful template of existing industrial alliances, and on the work done within the framework of the FCH JU.
“We welcome the proposal of a Clean Hydrogen Alliance, which can exploit all benefits that hydrogen can bring to the EU economy and jobs. This initiative is a clear evidence of the success of our public private partnership and we will actively support it ” said Bart Biebuyck, FCH JU Executive Director.
