Funding authorised for Air Liquide hydrogen scheme


The European Commission authorised the €67.6m funding granted at the end of 2007 by OSEO (French agency for innovation support) for the Horizon Hydrogen Energy (H2E) innovation programme on 8th October, a scheme coordinated by the Air Liquide Group.

Hydrogen, used as an energy carrier, is seen as one of the solutions to meet the challenge of a greener, environmentally energy future, a solution which the project aims to research and develop further.

The H2E programme, which represents an overall investment in research and technology of almost €200m over seven years, aims at building sustainable and competitive hydrogen-energy solutions. The research and development will cover the full hydrogen energy value chain.

In particular, it will investigate the development of innovative technologies for hydrogen production using renewable energy, hydrogen storage and industrialisation of fuel cells. H2E will also contribute to the setting up of a suitable regulatory framework.
