Fuel Cells Works, As Part of the Hydrogen IPCEI, the Elogen Project Will Benefit From the Support of the French State to the Amount of 86 Million Euros

Following the selection by the European Commission of its “gigafactory” project and the strengthening of its R&D within the framework of the Hydrogen IPCEI1, Elogen announces that its project will benefit from the support of the French State of an amount up to 86 million Euros. This aid will soon be formalized by an agreement signed with Bpifrance.

1 Important Project of Common European Interest.

For the record, on July 15, 2022, the European Commission authorized the 15 Member States concerned by the “Hy2Tech” IPCEI to provide public funding of up to 5.4 billion euros. Elogen is one of the 41 projects selected as part of the Hy2Tech IPCEI, in the “Hydrogen production technology” category.

Elogen’s project consists, on the one hand, in increasing the intensity of its R&D to develop innovative stacks of Proton Exchange Membranes (PEM) electrolysers2 as well as their components, and, on the other hand, in the construction and start up, in Vendôme (Loir-et -Cher), of a factory for the mass production of these stacks.

Jean-Baptiste Choimet, Managing Director of Elogen, declares: “The Elogen and GTT group teams are proud to be able to contribute to the development of hydrogen, supported by the proactive and ambitious strategies of the European Commission and its member states. The support provided by the French government to our project within the framework of the IPCEI is decisive and confirms the relevance of our positioning on innovation and the industrial ramp-up to develop the efficient, high-performance and competitive PEM electrolysers that the major hydrogen projects of tomorrow will require.”
