"The first will be spread across the North Adriatic area comprising Croatia, the autonomous region of Friuli Venezia Giulia in Italy, and Slovenia, and the second aims to build a hydrogen corridor across Baltic Sea countries, including Estonia and South Finland,” the Clean Hydrogen Partnership said.
The projects will now start negotiations for their grant agreements, which are expected to be concluded before the summer.
The North Adriatic Hydrogen Valley is an initiative supported by the governments of Croatia, Slovenia and the local authorities of Friuli Venezia Giulia, to accelerate the deployment of hydrogen technologies. Hydrogen valleys are regional ecosystems that link hydrogen production, transportation, and various end uses such as mobility or industrial feedstock.
