Will Renewable Hydrogen Help Unite Europe?

(Access Spanish language version)

If European countries want to be a leader in the emerging market for green hydrogen, they would be better served to work together as opposed to working alone.

After enduring months of a global health pandemic that has unleashed a profound economic crisis, Europe should not lose the opportunity to leverage its recovery plans to kick-start a clean hydrogen society.

Success is possible, but this transformational effort will require close coordination between policy, technology, capital, and society – to avoid falling into the traps and inefficiencies of the past. Only by working together, can the European Union become a global leader in clean hydrogen innovation, and simultaneously contribute to the EU’s climate and energy security goals, a stronger economy, and a more integrated union.
