Nine countries lined up in favour of hydrogen from nuclear sources
Brussels, 6 February
This week, ministers from 8 European countries (Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovenia, Croatia, Slovakia, Romania, Hungary and Bulgaria) joined France in sending a letter to the European Commission urging it to equate hydrogen produced from green hydrogen nuclear energy, i.e. made from renewable electricity.
According to the underwriters, limiting the targets to renewable energy would slow the growth of the hydrogen economy.
At least as many EU nations, including Germany, Denmark and Austria, oppose this proposal arguing that EU goals should focus only on renewable energy sources in order not to slow down the energy transition towards such sources.
