Stargate joins European Clean Hydrogen Alliance
Stargate Hydrogen joins the European Clean Hydrogen Alliance, an organization that promotes the ambitious deployment of green hydrogen technologies by 2030 as a means to reduce carbon emissions and help reach European carbon neutrality by 2050.
The use of green hydrogen has been identified as crucial for achieving the clean energy transition for Europe and the objectives of the European Green Deal. Green hydrogen has a wide range of uses, from storing renewable energy to fueling heavy transport. Already today, hydrogen is used in large quantities in energy-intensive industries, such as in steel and chemical sectors, and renewable hydrogen is the key to decreasing the carbon footprint of these sectors.
“Stargate Hydrogen is developing hydrogen-fuelled shunting and mainline locomotives for zero-emission rail applications, as well as green hydrogen solutions based on advanced alkaline technology. Our technology has great potential to address some of the central challenges of the energy transition,” says Erik Kuus, the CEO of Stargate Hydrogen.
The European Clean Hydrogen Alliance is a platform established by the European Commission bringing together industry, national and local public authorities, civil society and other stakeholders, aiming to establish an investment agenda and support the scaling up of the hydrogen value chain across Europe. The alliance promotes the use of green hydrogen as a viable and competitive fuel for Europe.
In order to join, an organization must sign the declaration committing itself to the shared vision of the alliance and to contributing to its operational work. Among other things, the members as a whole commit to a program of investments and projects. They will also mobilize resources and participants to install at least 6 GW of hydrogen electrolyzers by 2024—the most profitable process to produce clean hydrogen through renewable energy— and 40 GW before 2030.
“We are proud to be joining and look forward to contributing to the alliance,” concludes Kuus.
