The Clean Hydrogen Partnership has launched its first call for proposals with over €300 million available for supporting projects, in an unprecedented drive to boost the development of cutting-edge hydrogen and fuel cell technologies. A total of 41 topics make up this call for proposals, including 10 for renewable hydrogen production, 11 for hydrogen storage and distribution, 8 for transport and 4 for heat and power. In addition, 5 projects will support cross-cutting issues. This call will also support 2 hydrogen valleys and 1 strategic research challenge.

Through its first call for proposals the Clean Hydrogen Partnership will provide €300.5 million to support projects that boost renewable hydrogen production, reduce its costs, develop its storage and distribution solutions, and stimulate the use of low carbon hydrogen in hard to abate sectors, such as energy intensive industries, aviation or heavy duty transport. The call will also continue to help stimulating the deployment of “hydrogen valleys” across Europe, complex projects that cover the entire hydrogen value chain in a specific region, scaling-up hydrogen deployment and creating interconnected hydrogen ecosystems across Europe. Click here for more information including how to submit your proposal.

Clean Hydrogen Partnership Info Day 2022: Following the launch of the Call for proposals, the Clean Hydrogen Partnership has organised an Information Day on 15 March 2022. The Clean Hydrogen Partnership Programme Office will introduce the various call topics and present the Clean Hydrogen JU rules and procedures to submit proposals.
