This summer, McPhy joined the “European Clean Hydrogen Alliance” ECH2A (the European Clean Hydrogen Alliance) to contribute to the development of zero-carbon hydrogen and fully invest in the achievement of European carbon neutrality objectives.
The signing of our entry into the Alliance confirms McPhy’s desire to deploy zero-carbon hydrogen on a large scale in the service of the fight against air pollution and climate change.
We will work there alongside our peers to accelerate the deployment of zero-carbon hydrogen solutions at the heart of industries, energy systems or in favor of the emergence of new forms of clean mobility.
In line with this commitment, McPhy also contributed to sharing its expertise and knowledge of hydrogen during the European Hydrogen Week which took place from 23 to 27 November 2020.
By 2030, European industry will be a global leader that responsibly delivers value to society, the environment and the economy. By 2030, the EU will successfully become an innovative, sustainable, competitive and people-centered collaborative economy (…). We will invest massively in cutting-edge and disruptive technologies, respect planetary limits and biodiversity (…) ”.

ECHA: a professional alliance to support the deployment of Europe’s industrial strategy
The Clean Hydrogen Alliance aims to deploy green hydrogen by 2030 and thus participate in achieving carbon neutrality by 2050 in the European Union. Since July 2020, the alliance has been an integral part of Europe’s new industrial strategy, at the heart of which the development of carbon-free hydrogen holds a central place.
As a reminder, the alliance is open to various players in industry, mobility, production and distribution of hydrogen, public and private alike, whose wish is to want to contribute to the development of renewable or low hydrogen. -carbon in Europe.
Towards a dynamic hydrogen ecosystem in the EU
To achieve this, ECH2A has set itself an investment program to facilitate the implementation of hydrogen development actions and the deployment of technologies across Europe. The Alliance will build on EU leadership in hydrogen technologies, including electrolysers, hydrogen stations and megawatt-scale fuel cells.
The alliance should support increased production and demand for renewable and low-carbon hydrogen, coordinate action to engage civil society.
