The Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking Forum called for speeding up the deployment of hydrogen and fuel cells technologies for a green future.
The Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking is a public-private partnership designed to boost the collaboration between Industry and SMEs in Europe, and drive research and commercialisation of fuel cells and hydrogen technologies. Its annual stakeholder Forum is a time of renewed collaboration and commitment from its partners.
A green future
“Hydrogen is a key technology for achieving Europe’s climate and energy goals. Its potential benefits for the environment, consumers and European economy can power the transition of Europe’s energy sector towards a green future.” said Maroš Šefčovič, Vice-President of the European Commission for Energy Union.
Valerie Bouillon-Delporte, Chair of the FCH JU Board, added: “As hydrogen becomes increasingly important in the energy transition, the European industry is committed to investing in green hydrogen technologies and keeping its worldwide leadership.”
European fuel cell and hydrogen technologies
The FCH JU Executive Director Bart Biebuyck, who recently spoke to us about European fuel cell and hydrogen technologies, said: “Europe is now ready to accelerate the deployment of hydrogen and fuel cells technology and build on its strong leadership position in this field. Our industry-lead partnership is delivering innovative solutions, while creating 1000s of hydrogen-related jobs. ”
More information on fuel cell and hydrogen technologies from Bart BieBuyck will be available in our upcoming SciTech Europa Quarterly publication.
The Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking commented that the 400 participants at the forum in Brussels “[Took stock of the latest achievements of the sector while addressing the challenges of building the hydrogen infrastructure across the EU. Using hydrogen for renewables integration and sector coupling, and the economic potential of hydrogen in the global context are among the main topics discussed. Stakeholders agree that the partnership is delivering and must continue its work, building on the successes of the past ten years.”
