The EGHAC focuses purely on accelerating the uptake of green hydrogen in Europe – generated only with renewable sources such as wind or solar – as a key pillar for decarbonising our heavy industry, energy and transport sectors.

The EGHAC focuses purely on accelerating the uptake of green hydrogen in Europe – generated only with renewable sources such as wind or solar – as a key pillar for decarbonising our heavy industry, energy and transport sectors.

By 2025:

  • The actions of the EGHAC could create half a million direct and indirect jobs across the green hydrogen value chain by 2025.
  • Building a EUR 100 billion a year green hydrogen economy 

The EGHAC will manage several workstreams, including (1) promotion and co-creation of industrial projects across the value chain, (2) building connections with other industrial and energy value chains, (3) acceleration of technology development, (4) stimulation of market growth, (5) societal acceptance, and (6) addressing the skills gaps. 

Breakthrough Energy is a network of entities and initiatives – including investment funds, nonprofit and philanthropic programs, and policy efforts – committed to scaling the technologies we need to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by. Breakthrough believes that EGHAC is well-positioned to help Europe transition from a MW-size project-by-project approach to a portfolio of GW-scale projects that are key to closing the price gap between carbon-emitting technologies and green hydrogen. EGHAC is designed to accelerate the speed of delivery from mega- to gigawatts by creating a pipeline of pioneering large-scale projects and launching a new generation of public-private partnerships.

We collaborate with those who serve a common goal – which is to meet Europe’s net-zero greenhouse gas emissions goal by 2050. EGHAC will collaborate with other initiatives wherever meaningful to accelerate the development of a green hydrogen value chain in Europe.

  • EGHAC is an initiative driven by the industry, for the industry and backed by Breakthrough Energy with its large global network of associated investment funds and other programs.
  • EGHAC focuses purely on accelerating the uptake of green hydrogen in Europe – generated only with renewable sources such as wind or solar – as a key pillar for decarbonising our heavy industry, energy and transport sectors.
