The European Commission presented today its proposal to set-up 10 new European Partnerships and invest nearly €10 billion for the green and digital transition.
Among these, the Clean Hydrogen Partnership will be building on the work of the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking, to accelerate the development and deployment of a European value chain for clean hydrogen technologies. It will focus on producing, distributing and storing clean hydrogen and, on supplying sectors that... Read more
The FCH JU organised on 18 November 2020 an internal workshop on “Safety of Electrolysis” with the support of the European Safety Panel (EHSP).
The workshop focused on the safety aspects of electrolysis technology and had three main objectives:
1- To summarize the state-of-the-art and standardization with regards to electrolyser safety;
2- To review the available experience with regard to safe design and operations, and the lessons learned from past accidents; and
3- To... Read more
