HyER’s TEN T proposal for a H2 corridor study and pilot, that HyER prepared with the Dutch government, with the support of the French, German, Swedish and Danish governments, has been approved by the EU Member States today.
HyER is participating as an applicant in this proposal to support three of the five main activities of the proposal:
1. Collection of the preparatory activities and experiences with regards to corridor development of the five national hydrogen infrastructure initiatives APHYPAC, Hydrogen Sweden, Danish Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Platform, Dutch Hydrogen Strategy Plan and NOW with a link to the UK H2Mobility activities through the London Hydrogen Partnership.
2. Development of a Synchronised Implementation Plan based on the input of the national initiatives for policymakers and infrastructure managers along a more than 1.100 km corridor from Sweden, via Denmark and Germany to the Netherlands with links to France and the UK;
3. Dissemination and engagement activities to involve other regional and national stakeholders as well as the EU institutions.
The proposal will include three pilot stations in the Netherlands and Denmark.
HyER has also been invited to be present with a stand at the TEN T Agency Infoday on November 21, 2012.
These developments further show the importance of our engagement with the EU Commission to further develop effective EU support programs.
