What is hydrogen and why this project?

Green hydrogen is considered by the EU and other global players as a key technology in the transition to CO2 neutral societies and industries. For the Ostrobothnia region, a holistic mapping and update of the H2 knowledge and activities is needed and close cooperation between a broad base of actors (universities, large companies, small and medium sized enterprises, development organizations, municipalities) is to be started. This network will together create the vision for how the Ostrobothnian actors can build successful ecosystems around green hydrogen, which in turn contributes to the region's specialization and innovation activities.

This project aims to build the regional network of actors with an interest in green hydrogen, create a knowledge base for the role of green hydrogen technology as part of system level energy solutions, support the development of new business opportunities related to green hydrogen, and promote the regional transition to CO2 neutral society.
