Macron says France can be green hydrogen leader by 2030

President also targets promotion of small nuclear reactors and 35pc cut in industry’s emissions as part of €30bn roadmap

France aims to become the leader in green hydrogen with at least two electrolyser gigafactories by 2030, says President Emmanuel Macron. France will invest in hydrogen production and consumption technologies as part of a €30bn ($34.6bn) green technology roadmap called ‘France 30’, he adds. Macron, who faces presidential elections next year, says a second objective will be to spend €1bn on promoting small nuclear reactors with improved waste management systems. A third objective set out in the plan is to decarbonise industry to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 35pc compared with 2015 levels. “More than €8bn will be invested to achieve these first three objectives,” the government says.
