Latvian gas transmission and storage operator Conexus Baltic Grid has joined the European Clean Hydrogen Alliance.
The Alliance wants to expand hydrogen technologies by 2030 and create a viable investment programme with concrete projects aimed at the decarbonisation of various sectors.
Conexus has been researching gas network decarbonisation, in accordance with the Latvian National Energy and Climate Plan 2021-2030, analysing the possibilities of injecting hydrogen into the natural gas transmission system.
The company has also been working on an action plan for the establishment of hydrogen infrastructure.
Jānis Eisaks, Chairman of the Board of Conexus, commented, “Joining the European Clean Hydrogen Alliance is natural given Europe’s progress towards decarbonisation and the challenges of building hydrogen infrastructure.”
“For us, this is a way of helping to create a climate-neutral, integrated energy system, the core of which is renewable electricity, circulation, and renewable and low-carbon fuels. This is a complex and complex job that will be a high-level priority for the next 10 years.”
