Norway’s H2 Roadmap focuses on Hubs and Research

June 14 (Renewables Now) – The Norwegian government on Friday unveiled a hydrogen roadmap that sees an established market for hydrogen production and use in the country by 2050.

In a shorter time horizon, the government will look to set up hydrogen hubs and bolster hydrogen research. In partnership with the private sector, it will aim to facilitate the creation of five hydrogen hubs for maritime transport by 2025, as well as one or two industrial projects with associated production facilities. It will also pursue the establishment of five to ten pilot projects for the development and demonstration of new, more cost-effective hydrogen solutions and technologies.

By 2030, the government hopes that hydrogen will become a realistic alternative in the maritime sector. It also expects that there will be a prospect of market-based development.

The roadmap will also call for coordination of funding agencies as, the government says, considerable funding schemes exist already to support hydrogen development.

The Research Council of Norway and government enterprise Enova on Friday launched a partnership called HEILO – hydrogen as an energy carrier for low emissions and transition. It is intended to make it easier to find the right support scheme for hydrogen projects.

The roadmap is part of the government’s Putting Energy to Work white paper and a follow-up of its hydrogen strategy launched in June 2020.
