The Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region launches its hydrogen club
Due to the Coronavirus, the club was officially launched in the form of a webinar on March 26. The webinar featured presentations by AFHYPAC, ADEME, the Bourgogne-Franche Comté region, the economic agency (AER), the Vehicle of the Future competitiveness cluster, the Belfort FCLAB platform. Montbéliard, and representatives of companies such as the bus manufacturer Safra, the Colruyt distribution group, without forgetting the National Institute for the Industrial Environment and Risks (INERIS)
Hydrogen in the regions: achieving a successful energy transition
Zero-carbon hydrogen is a key vector in the energy transition, indeed it can respond to major environmental challenges by its use in multiple applications. Used as a fluid in industrial processes, transformed into clean fuel for zero-emission vehicles, or used as a storage and flexibility vector for electricity and gas networks; zero-carbon hydrogen contributes to the decarbonization of all sectors of the economy and to the emergence of a more carbon-neutral society model.
At a time when the need for action against climate change is becoming more and more urgent, it is through the mesh of territories that projects can be pushed which will make it possible to decarbonize all sectors of activity. Like many regions in France, Europe and around the world, the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region affirms its desire to make hydrogen a strategic zero-carbon energy for the development of the territory.
The Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region is committed
In this context and faced with the exponential growth of the hydrogen market, the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté region is committed to the energy transition by taking initiatives to ensure the development of the hydrogen sector.
The Vehicle of the Future Pole is organizing a webinar for the launch of the Bourgogne-Franche-Comté hydrogen club on March 26, 2020.
This club will bring together industrial and research actors working around the hydrogen sector. The objective is to give greater visibility to H 2 projects and applications deployed on the territory.
