Scope

Green hydrogen will be an important part of integrating renewables in the energy system and above all, to decarbonise industry.

Kickstart
the creation

The EGHAC will initiate and support large scale industrial green hydrogen projects which will have massive CO2 reduction impact, kickstart the creation of an green hydrogen economy and create jobs. These projects are always considered from a value chain perspective and explicitly include the “off-takers” (end customers).

The industrial projects will span a large variety of value chains with energy intensive applications.

Heavy industries

such as steel and cement

Heavy industries

eg., maritime (inland shipping) and heavy duty

Feedstock

for chemical process and fertilisers

Support for start-ups and innovation projects

Next to large scale industrial projects the EGHAC support further
developments of green hydrogen related technology. Start-ups and innovation projects can get support via the regular EIT InnoEnergy processes and support programmes.

Start-ups

Can apply for the EIT InnoEnergy highway program

Innovation projects
and consortia

Can get support via the EIT InnoEnergy Investment Round.
The next cut-off date for that will be the 15th of March 2021.
