Hydrogen from renewable energy will be produced in Ukraine and stored for seasonal demand in Central Europe in the future.
The focus of the H2EU+Store project is ramping up and accelerating production of green hydrogen for use in Europe, as part of the climate-neutral energy future. Against this backdrop, the project will involve creating the required capacity for renewable energy and hydrogen production in Ukraine, as well as expanding storage capacity in Austria and Germany and making adaptations to gas transmission to Central Europe to allow for imports of significant volumes of hydrogen.
The initiative is being implemented by an international industrial consortium, comprising Eco-Optima LLC, Bayerngas GmbH, bayernets GmbH, Gas Connect Austria GmbH, eustream, a.s, Nafta a.s., Open Grid Europe GmbH and RAG Austria AG.
"This infrastructure project is indispensable for the future security of energy supply in Austria and Germany; only in this way sufficient green energy will be available for electricity, heat, industry and mobility throughout the year."
