Horizon Europe project BalticSeaH2

IWEN is part of a project application accepted by the EU. The aim of the "BalticSeaH2" project is to establish a large-scale, international hydrogen valley in the Baltic Sea region.
On 01.06.2023 the five-year project started. The project consortium consists of 44 partners from nine countries in the Baltic Sea region: Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Germany, Denmark, Norway and Sweden. CLIC Innovation Oy and Gasgrid Finland Oy are jointly coordinating the project. The total value of the proposal is 33 million euros, with an estimated EU grant of 25 million. BalticSeaH2 intends to establish the first, large scale interregional hydrogen valley in Europe. The objective is to create an integrated hydrogen economy in the region to enable decarbonization of different industry sectors and provide energy security in the entire region and further for central Europe. The region between Finland and Estonia is an ideal location for developing the first cross-border hydrogen market because of the already existing infrastructure that is shared between the two countries: natural gas pipelines, electricity grid connections and maritime connections for transportation. The project also aims to decarbonize the Baltic Sea region marine transportation.
