Report from our Powerfuels Brief on how the “Fit for 55” package will impact the development of green hydrogen and other powerfuels

To put the EU on track to reach its 2030 goal, the European Commission released its long-awaited “Fit for 55” package in July 2021. The package includes some 13 legislative proposals that will shape the regulatory framework for climate and energy across the EU substantially. As such, the package will also have a considerable impact on the development of hydrogen and other powerfuels in the EU and beyond.

In order to discuss the content of the package, its implications for powerfuels project development, and identify critical points to be addressed in the policy-making processes of the upcoming years, the Global Alliance Powerfuels gathered policy and industry experts in a digital event as part of its “Powerfuels Brief” series on 2 August 2021.

During the event, the Alliance’s in-house experts (Johanna Friese, Expert International Energy Policy; Friederike Altgelt, Expert Sustainable Mobility and PtX Technologies) and four guest speakers (Christian Pho Duc, CTO & Managing Director H2 Projects, and Joana Santos Vaz, EU Public Affairs & Business Development Manager, Smartenergy; François Paquet, Impact Director, Renewable Hydrogen Coalition; Stefan Gielis, EU Public Affairs Manager, Air Liquide) presented their preliminary analysis of the package. The presentations were followed by a moderated discussion as well as a Q&A session with contributions from the audience.
