Hydrogen Europe signs MoU with Waterborne TP
In line with the European Commission’s 2050 long term decarbonisation strategy, the waterborne sector is determined to reduce its environmental impact and is fully committed to transform itself into a zero-emission mode of transport by 2050 latest. In this transition process, hydrogen is a decarbonised energy carrier and a zero-emission fuel, making it a key enabler of a zero-emission European society.
In view of this, Hydrogen Europe and the Waterborne Technology Platform signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on 13 May 2019. This MoU will help both parties to identify opportunities for hydrogen-related technologies in order to reduce the significant emissions of waterborne transport. Furthermore, the MoU will help them both to explore the contribution of the waterborne sector in scaling up the development of hydrogen technologies in ports and industrial zones, in synergy with other sectors (e.g. energy intensive industries) and other modes of transport.
