On Tuesday 21 April 2020, the Hydrogen Fuel Cell Joint Undertaking (FCH-JU) launched the Hydrogen Valley Platform which can be found at http://www.h2v.eu. The platform is described as a Global Information Platform and results from the FCH-JU involvement in the Mission Innovation initiative.
The Renewable and Clean Hydrogen Programme under Mission Initiative was launched in May 2018 and a workshop on Hydrogen Valleys was held in Antwerp in March 2019. It attracted 80 representatives from governments, industry and the research community. As well as the FCH-JU and the European Commission, countries involved in Mission Innovation include Austria, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Chile, China, India, Japan, Norway and the USA.
The Hydrogen Valley concept is a way of developing an integrated regional economy based on hydrogen which combines the increased production of large amounts of clean hydrogen with a variety of uses such as transport, heating and cooling and the production of feedstuffs etc.
The Platform’s objective is to promote the emergence and implementation of hydrogen flagship projects and raise awareness among policy makers. The Platform will offer up-to-date information about Hydrogen Valley projects. On the Platform, its Mission ” is to create a global collaboration and go-to-platform for all information on large-scale hydrogen flagship projects (Hydrogen Valleys – H2Vs). By promoting the emergence and implementation of value chain integrating hydrogen projects, as well as raising awareness among policy makers we aim to facilitate the clean energy transition.”
The Platform states that it “is dedicated to all current and future hydrogen project developers. It will help you to gather meaningful information from experienced peers and will promote collaboration among one another. On top of that we strive to underline the core value added of hydrogen as an energy vector to inform all relevant stakeholders who support the development of hydrogen projects.”
The Platform has sectors which are currently being developed:
