The sixth Mission Innovation Ministerial meeting took place in Chile on Wednesday (June 2) to discuss its goal of reducing the costs of clean hydrogen to the end user to $2/kg by 2030.
In addition to this, the coalition also discussed its goal of establishing 100 large-scale integrated hydrogen valleys worldwide.
The members of this coalition include the European Commission, Australia, Austria, Canada, Chile, China, Germany, India, Italy, Morocco, Norway, Saudi Arabia, Republic of Korea, the UK and the US.
The mission will build a dynamic and ambitious alliance between countries, businesses, investors and research institutes to accelerate innovation on clean hydrogen.
This will include international collaboration on research, development and innovation to further develop hydrogen valleys and accelerate building a global clean hydrogen economy in line with the European Green Deal objectives.
One of the tasks of the Clean Hydrogen joint undertaking will be to ensure synergies with the Clean Hydrogen Mission and work closely to increase cooperation on hydrogen technologies innovation.
The Clean Hydrogen Mission has been launched for an initial period of five years, and depending on progress achieved, may be extended for a further five years to support the delivery of its key objectives by 2030.
Mariya Gabriel, European Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, said, “The European Commission, together with the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking and EU Member States, will further develop the hydrogen valleys in Europe and abroad.
“Creating a strong network and decreasing the cost of clean hydrogen is a significant step towards achieving our ambitious EU climate goals by 2030.”
