This part of the Hydrogen Public Funding Compass provides information on EU programmes and funds that can help stakeholders finance their renewable or low-carbon hydrogen activities.
The EU budget supports the large-scale deployment of renewable and low-carbon hydrogen along the EU value chain – for the EU to meet the increased climate ambition of 55% reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 in comparison to 1990 levels, and climate neutrality by 2050.
The large number of EU funding instruments that can support hydrogen projects means that EU financing is available for a wide variety of hydrogen activities, ranging from the production of renewable and low-carbon hydrogen to its transmission and distribution, and application in industry and for mobility purposes, among others. Individual projects can obtain funding from several EU funding instruments in combination, provided that there is no double funding of the same costs.
For each EU programme or fund, the EU funding compass highlights objectives and key features, and provides links under which additional information can be consulted (background documents, legal framework, funding portal, national contact points etc.). EU programmes and funds are evolving. This guide will therefore be updated regularly.
