Co-ordination Action to Establish a Hydrogen and Fuel Cell ERA-Net, Hydrogen Coordination

Objective

The aim of the Co-ordination Action "HY-CO" is to establish an ERA-Net to cover the most important aspects of research, development and demonstration in the comprehensive fields of hydrogen and fuel cells (H2/FC) and to set the basis to establish mutual opening up of national funding programmes in hydrogen and fuel cells at EU level. Hydrogen and fuel cells are considered an important long term technology contribution to a sustainable energy economy. The importance is based on scenarios of primary energy consumption growth for the period 2000 - 2030, concerns about diminishing reserves of conventional energy resources, and on the environmental impacts of CO2 emissions which are associated with fossil fuels. Worldwide, there are major efforts to advance H2/FC technology through R&D programmes, and to develop market and deployment strategies at the same time. In order to overcome the fragmentation of European R&D programmes and activities in the area of hydrogen and fuel cells and in the context of a coherent strategy towards a sustainable hydrogen economy in the long term, a coalition of European partners, responsible for national and regional H2/FC programmes, will establish mutual exchange of information, analysis of existing programmes and activities, leading to joint programmatic activities. HY-CO is closely linked to the European Hydrogen and Fuel Cells Technology Platform and will, in addition to providing an interface with the Member States Mirror Group, closely interact with the Advisory Council. The partners of the HY-CO consortium are represented by senior policy makers and programme managers. The consortium consists of 21 participants from 16 countries and one region and is open to additional participants representing substantial national programmes or activities on hydrogen or fuel cells.
