II.1.4)Short description:

The interest of governments in hydrogen technologies is driven by hydrogen’s versatility, cross-sectorial usages, and potential for enabling deep decarbonisation. Although many demonstration projects have successfully shown the maturity and benefits of individual hydrogen technologies, typically either in isolation or in limited size, the viability of hydrogen as a ‘systemic solution’ has yet to be showcased at scale. Considering the resource constraints of MI Members, and the limitations imposed by the timeline of Mission Innovation, it is deemed crucial to identify actions that will generate maximum impact in the short term. In this context, the European Commission (through its public-private partnership, FCH 2 JU) proposes to set-up a global Information Sharing Platform within MI-IC8, to facilitate the emergence and implementation of large-scale hydrogen projects and leveraging the knowledge where IPR issues are less sensitive.
