Rapport Guidehouse "Facilitating hydrogen imports from non-EU countries"
This paper provides insights on the existing challenges of imports (10Mt) and how they can be overcome.
The European Commission recently published its REPowerEU plan which aims to rapidly reduce dependence on Russian fossil fuels and accelerate the green transition. Hydrogen plays a key role in this plan. A total of 20 Mt of hydrogen is targeted by 2030 – 10 Mt via domestic production and up to 10 Mt via imports. To meet the hydrogen import target, infrastructure, regulation, and support mechanisms must be fit for purpose. However, this is currently not the case. This paper provides insights on the existing challenges of imports and how they can be overcome.
