Conexus has joined the European Clean Hydrogen Alliance! It aims to deploy hydrogen technologies by 2030, bringing together renewable and low-carbon hydrogen production, demand in industry, mobility and other sectors, and hydrogen transmission and distribution.
In line with the European Green Course to make Europe climate-neutral by 2050, JSC Conexus Baltic Grid (Conexus) has joined the European Clean Hydrogen Alliance, which aims to expand hydrogen technologies by 2030 and create a viable investment program with concrete projects aimed at also to the decarbonisation of various sectors.
Given the European green course, the demand for fossil gas in the form of chemically bound energy carriers could decrease after 2030, so it is important to re-profile elements of Europe’s existing gas infrastructure, providing infrastructure for large-scale cross-border hydrogen transport and expanding efficient and sustainable renewable energy. use in the economy.
To do this, the technical suitability of the infrastructure, the current framework, as well as infrastructure planning need to be assessed in order to make investment decisions based on it.
Conexus is already working purposefully on long-term energy conversion projects. In accordance with the Latvian National Energy and Climate Plan 2021–2030. year , has done research on the gas network decarbonisation, analyzing the possibilities of natural gas transmission system to adjust RES hydrogen and other gaseous fuels input, as well as an action plan for the establishment of a hydrogen infrastructure.
Jānis Eisaks, Chairman of the Board of Conexus, continues: “Joining the European Clean Hydrogen Alliance is natural given Europe’s progress towards decarbonisation and the challenges of building hydrogen infrastructure. For us, this is a way of helping to create a climate-neutral, integrated energy system, the core of which is renewable electricity, circulation, and renewable and low-carbon fuels. This is a complex and complex job that will be a high-level priority for the next 10 years. ”
