The EHB aims to accelerate Europe’s decarbonisation journey by defining the critical role of hydrogen infrastructure – based on existing and new pipelines – in enabling the development of a competitive, liquid, pan-European renewable and low-carbon hydrogen market. By 2040 this could include a majority 60% repurposed pipelines and 40% new. The initiative seeks to foster market competition, security of supply, and cross-border collaboration between European countries and their neighbours.
Earlier this year, the EHB initiative announced eight new members: Amber Grid (Lithuania), Bulgartransgaz (Bulgaria), Conexus Baltic Grid (Latvia), Gassco (Norway), Plinacro (Croatia), REN (Portugal), Fluxswiss (Switzerland) and Transgaz (Romania).
Shared vision of climate-neutral Europe
With this expansion, the initiative now comprises 31 energy infrastructure operators covering 29 European countries. All members are united through a shared vision of a climate-neutral Europe enabled by a thriving renewable and low-carbon hydrogen market.
