The Clean Hydrogen JU, hereafter named “the JU”, is a public private partnership supporting research and innovation activities on clean hydrogen in Europe. Its aim is to strengthen and integrate EU scientific capacity, in order to accelerate the development and improvement of advanced clean hydrogen applications, combining it with strengthening competitiveness of the Union clean hydrogen value chain. The three members of the JU are the European Commission on behalf of the Union, the Industry Grouping represented by Hydrogen Europe AISBL and the Research Grouping represented by Hydrogen Europe Research AISBL.

The EU will support the JU with €1 billion euro for the period 2021-2027, complemented by at least an equivalent amount of private investment (from the two private members of the partnership), raising the total budget to above €2 billion euro.

The research and innovation activities of the JU are guided to a large extent by the EU’s Hydrogen Strategy and the policy developments in this context, including REPowerEU Action Plan, contributing to its implementation. Its main focus is on renewable hydrogen production, as well as hydrogen transmission, distribution and storage, alongside selected fuel cell end-use technologies in transport, buildings and industry.
