Feasibility study for export of hydrogen from iceland to the european continent (EURO-HYPORT)

Objective

A consortium of leading European corporations within the area of hydrogen production and fuel distribution, and hydrogen engine developers join forces to perform a full scale feasibility study of exporting renewably produced hydrogen from Iceland to the European continent. The EURO-HYPORT project examines the hydrogen production (cost, methods, efficiency, etc.), storage (cost/technical solutions - liquefied or compressed), transport possibilities (containers/tankers, pipeline), infrastructure both for a full scale implementation (Iceland, case study) and for a depot distribution at the European end. In addition the feasibility study will address the option of a electric sea cable connection from Iceland to Europe. Part of this Accompanying measure will also be on increasing public awareness of hydrogen, use and emissions. This is a key dissemination part of the project to strengthen this and other hydrogen activities in Europe.
