Integration of renewable hydrogen into the hydrogen economy - target action i (RENEWABLE-H2)

Objective

In the long-term hydrogen (H2) is expected to become an important energy carrier. In combination with fuel cells it offers the opportunity of an intrinsically clean energy supply. Substantial effort is put into the introduction of hydrogen in the energy supply including e.g. production, safety, regulation/legislation, social acceptance, storage, transport, applications etc. It should be noted, however, that these developments are based on hydrogen produced by conventional methods or from fossil fuels. At present, hydrogen produced from renewable sources of energy("Renewable-H2") plays a minor role at best. The main objective of this proposal is to realise the integration of Renewable-H2 into existing activities aimed at the development of the H2-economy. The project will result in a comprehensive overview of European activities on Renewable-H2, identification of the role thatRenewable-H2 can play, and a plan of action to realise the integration.
