Commissioner Kadri Simson welcomes EHB analysis – Webinar recording now available


The European Commissioner for Energy, Ms Kadri Simson, welcomed the European Hydrogen Backbone initiative, noting that its phased approach matches well with that of the EU Hydrogen Strategy, moving towards larger scale use of hydrogen post-2030, with supply further from the demand centres. She also noted a shared view on combining Europe’s own significant supply potential, highlighting co-operation with Morocco and Ukraine on developing projects and promoting cross-border trade.

Ms Simson praised the new study as a welcome contribution to the debate on an EU hydrogen economy and as useful input for the legislative proposals that the Commission is preparing.

Only through developing a shared vision and goals for an EU hydrogen ecosystem, we can make sure that the EU will lead in building the hydrogen economy for a global clean energy transition” Ms Simson concluded.

The recording of the webinar is now available! The slides that were presented can be found here.
