BDEW Joins ECHA

The European Commission now has the Federal Association of Energy and Wasserwirtschaft (BDEW) as a member of the European Clean Hydrogen

With the alliance established in July, the EU aims to support the development of a clean and globally competitive hydrogen industry in Europe and contribute to achieving carbon neutrality by 2050. The alliance acts as a platform that enables close cooperation and coordination along the hydrogen value chain. One of the goals is to build an investment pipeline with economically viable, large-scale projects.

The focus is on six areas: hydrogen production, transport of hydrogen, energy sector, industrial applications, applications in residential buildings and mobility.

Kerstin Andreae, CEO of BDEW: “The decarbonization necessary for the climate goals will not be possible without hydrogen as an energy source. This is where the European energy industry plays a central role: it will supply the green electricity with which a significant proportion of the climate-neutral hydrogen required can be produced. It is therefore important that the funds announced in the EU recovery plan flow quickly into specific European projects”
