SolarPower Europe has launched a new workstream on Renewable Hydrogen.
The workstream will strive to develop market and business intelligence on solar-to-hydrogen and renewable hydrogen, identifying the most promising business models and the means of accelerating the cost-reduction of electrolysis-based production. It will develop recommendations from the solar industry, to promote renewable hydrogen in key European policy files such as the upcoming revision of the Renewable Energy Directive (RED II) and revision of the EU State Aid Guidelines for Energy and Environment (EEAG).
“On the road to achieving climate neutrality in the EU, renewable hydrogen is the missing puzzle piece, a key enabler of Green Deal ambition and for the decarbonization of hard-to-electrify sectors. Building on a flourishing European renewable industry, a clear prioritization of renewable hydrogen solutions in the EU Hydrogen Strategy will multiply job and growth opportunities, establishing Europe as a world leader in renewable and electrolysis-based solutions. Our workstream will strive to promote the right framework and business conditions needed for the success of this endeavor, in close collaboration with our partners from the Renewable Hydrogen Coalition”.Aurélie Beauvais, deputy CEO and policy director of SolarPower Europe.
