A world-leading hydrogen ecosystem must be created in Finland if the country is to reach its ambitious target of climate neutrality by 2035, says a new report released today (Sep 15).
Hydrogen has not played a central role in Finnish industry or the country’s economic landscape to date.
However, Finland has a clean, smart and robust power system, cost-effective renewable electricity resources, comprehensive and solid energy infrastructure and world-leading technology companies which are all key requirements for success in the construction of a hydrogen economy, the new report by Hydrogen Cluster Finland (HCF) says.
A Finnish hydrogen economy could create a brand-new export industry with tens of thousands of jobs, in addition to supporting other nations around the world as they look to decarbonise.
But to get there, a common and shared Finnish hydrogen integration and acceleration plan based on a shared systemic vision must be defined and implemented with pragmatic, predictable and long-term policies that create the desirable and stable investment environment Finland has today.
The report by HCF presents decision makers with a system-level vision as well as concrete actions to kick-start and build a prosperous hydrogen economy in Finland.
