Podle údajů Gas Infrastructure Europe (GIE) bylo do výběru projektů společného zájmu (PCI) a projektů společného zájmu (PMI) předloženo 147 projektů vodíkové infrastruktury. Tento počet ilustruje vůli průmyslu podpořit rozvoj evropského vodíkového hospodářství a také splnit cíle programu REPowerEU.

The public was invited to provide feedback to the individual projects until mid-March, in accordance with the revised Trans-European Network for Energy (TEN-E) Regulation. The list underlines the potential of hydrogen transmission, storage and terminal projects in decarbonising the overall energy system and connecting different regions and corridors across the EU.

“The development of an interconnected pan-European hydrogen system – building on a large extent on the repurposing and retrofitting of existing gas infrastructure, but also on new assets – is a cornerstone of the EU’s goal to achieve climate neutrality by 2050,” said GIE Secretary General, Boyana Achovski. “GIE is fully committed to supporting its members to deliver on this objective.”

A regulatory framework at the European level must facilitate the development of these projects. Appropriate and tailor-made rules will enable them to be developed in a quick and cost-efficient way to the benefit of society. As a complementary framework, the discussions on the Hydrogen and Decarbonised Gas Market Package need to be concluded as soon as possible.
