REPowerEU: How to Deliver on the Hydrogen Accelerator? Ifri Green Deal Virtual Lunch Series
The first REPowerEU proposals aimed at reducing Russian gas demand, boosting resilience and decarbonization, call for a hydrogen accelerator with 10 Mt of additional hydrogen imports by 2030 and 5 Mt of additional domestic production, compared to 10 Mt of domestic production planned in the Fit for 55 package.
As plans are being fine-tuned, this webinar aims to discuss prospects for meeting such very ambitious goals: what type of imports could be considered, from where and through what mechanism? What value chain organization in Europe – local, cluster, cross-regional – can ensure the most cost efficient and rapid ramp up of competitive hydrogen and byproducts? Can industrial developments around electrolysers live up the challenge?
