Coalition eyes 100% green hydrogen at €1.5/kg by 2030


A group of 30 European energy players have launched the HyDeal Ambition, aiming to deliver 100% green hydrogen across Europe at €1.5/kg before 2030.

Under the HyDeal Ambition, unveiled on 11 February, the production of green hydrogen will be generated by solar-driven electrolysis from the Iberian Peninsula from 2022. The goal is to achieve 95GW of solar and 67GW of electrolysis capacity by 2030, delivering 3.6mn tonnes of green hydrogen per year in the energy, industry and mobility sectors through the gas transmission and storage network.

It will proceed via a phased approach. First deliveries will take place in Spain and the Southwest of France before extending into the East of France and Germany.

Projects and partnerships are currently being launched involving several of the participants, which include DH2/Dhamma Energy, Falck Renewables and McPhy Energy. A first initiative is expected within a year in Spain, based on a portfolio of solar sites that have a capacity of close to 10GW.
