European Partnership for Hydrogen Technologies
The Clean Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (JU) is a unique public private partnership supporting research and innovation (R&I) activities in hydrogen technologies in Europe.
The Clean Hydrogen Partnership's main objective is to contribute to EU Green Deal and Hydrogen Strategy through optimised funding of R&I activities. The Clean Hydrogen Partnership is the successor of the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen 2 Joint Undertaking (FCH 2 JU) and has taken over its legacy portfolio as of 30 November 2021.
The Clean Hydrogen JU will contribute to the European climate neutrality goal by producing noticeable, quantifiable results towards the development and scaling up of hydrogen applications.
Ministero dell'Ambiente e della Sicurezza Energetica
Since many years the Italian Italian Ministry of Environment and Energy Security is engaged in initiatives aimed at promoting and disseminating models of sustainable production and consumption, in line with the actions envisaged by the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations Agenda 2030 at a global level, with the “Fit for 55” package at European Union level and with the “Plan for the Ecological Transition” and the “New Strategy for the Circular Economy” at national level.
The goal is to guide the country towards a low-carbon economy in which are guaranteed, at the same time, the protection and enhancement of the territory and of the communities and the rational management, sustainable and circular use of resources. The concept of sustainability, which integrates the economic, environmental, social and cultural dimensions, the possibility of measuring and improving it through multi-criteria indicators, the accessibility to information concerning the commitments undertaken by companies and the results achieved are all elements that are increasingly rooted in the economic system and in the territorial management, representing an added value for businesses, consumers, administrations and citizens.
The Italian Ministry of Environment and Energy Security ensures rigor, uniformity and transparency of the contents of the communication activities within the sustainability programs through internationally recognized standardized procedure
Hydrogen Europe Research
Hydrogen Europe Research is an international, non–profit association composed of more than 140 Universities and Research & Technology Organisations (RTO) from 29 countries all over Europe and beyond.
Its members are active within the European hydrogen and fuel cells sector. HER is a dynamic organisation in great expansion: in 13 years membership basis and geographic coverage have doubled. They welcome new members interested in joining the European research and innovation ecosystem focused on hydrogen and participating in the underlying discussions surrounding the development of its sector!
Their vision is to enable the development of mature hydrogen technologies in order to achieve a sustainable and decarbonised fully-integrated energy system. Their mission is based on 4 pillars:
-Supporting the excellence of European research on hydrogen and fuel cells
-Promoting the development of research & technology infrastructures to scale up and speed up innovation
-Ensuring sustainable development standards for a clean hydrogen ecosystem
-Fostering education and trainings to provide the European hydrogen economy with a skilled workforce
Hydronews was born as an independent editorial initiative with the aim of providing the hydrogen industry with specialized, accurate and punctual information, thus contributing to the development of the economic community that is emerging in Italy around this sector.
The goal of Hydronews is to tell the evolution of the supply chain from the point of view of production, use as an energy source and transport of hydrogen, without neglecting the aspects relating to the legislative and regulatory framework.
Hydronews is founded and directed by Francesco Bottino, a professional journalist with over 10 years of experience in b2b information in the shipping, transport, oil & gas and energy sectors.
