The Tartu city government is exploring options for joining the European Commission’s European Clean Hydrogen Alliance for the purpose of introducing hydrogen technologies more rapidly and extensively, informed LETA/BNS.
The European Clean Hydrogen Alliance aims at an ambitious deployment of hydrogen technologies by 2030, bringing together renewable and low-carbon hydrogen
production, demand in industry, mobility and other sectors, and hydrogen transmission and distribution, spokespeople for the Tartu city government said on Wednesday. With the alliance, the EU wants to build its global leadership in this domain, to support the EU’s commitment to reach carbon neutrality by 2050.
“Hydrogen technologies are today regarded one of the most promising solutions for achieving carbon neutrality, which is why the new energy and climate plan of the city of Tartu also pays attention to the use of hydrogen technologies,” Deputy Mayor of Tartu Raimond Tamm said.
Low-carbon technologies hold a key role in preventing climate change and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. With a view to staying informed about developments in hydrogen technologies, the City of Tartu has joined an observer network in a project on hydrogen regions launched by the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH 2 JU).
The network’s opening meeting is scheduled for Sept. 3.
