EU outlines new hydrogen transport targets

Targets on fuel use and refuelling network laid out in latest package of measures

The European Commission has announced more measures to support the development of green hydrogen as part of a wider package of reforms aimed at reducing emissions by 55pc below 1990 levels by 2030. The EU already has a hydrogen strategy aiming for 40GW of installed electrolyser capacity by 2030. The impact assessment for the new package of measures estimates this will cost €22bn/yr ($26bn/yr) in the 2021-2030 period. But among the revisions to the EU legal framework proposed by the Commission—which it says are consistent with the goals of the hydrogen strategy—are targets that hydrogen and synthetic fuels form at least 2.6pc of transport fuel use by 2030. The Commission has also proposed
