This year all EU Member States will have to submit their poilicy framework to support the acceleration of an alternative fuels’ infrastructure in Europe. The increasing number of public calls for ending the fossil fuel area from G7 to the Mission Innovation Initiaitve  launched at the COP21, could provide a change of pace as well of focus in the deployment of alternative fuels. The ambitious EU’s 2030 Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emission target of 40%  has now become mandatory after the positive COP21 decision. As pointed out by the Dutch presidency at a recent ACEA workshop, reaching the 2050 target of 60% GHG reduction in transport and the fleet renewal timeframes, zero emission vehicles will need to cover all new car sales in EU 28 by 2035, based on car sales over the last 3 years. This will require  13 -17 mln zero emission cars by 2035 plus refuelling and recharging infrastructure according to estimates published in the Synchronized Implementation Plan of the EU HIT project, the first hydrogen station project along TEN T corridors that EHA facilitated in cooperationwith HyER and that was finalized last year.

A step change in coordination with industry is therefor needed to align perspectives on roll out and to ensure sufficient political and public awareness of the role of hydrogen as an alternative fuel and fuel cells as efficient power systems (photo: happy FC customers @EnBW/Vaillant).  The EHA therefor called its national association members to Brussels in the first weeks of the New Year to discuss a proposal for increased cooperation with Hydrogen Europe, the new name for the Industry Grouping of FCH JU. National associations represent many different stakeholders and are in close contact with key national and local decision makers. As mentioend by Ian Williamson, EHA’s chairman, the societal dimension of the introduction of hydrogen and fuel cells and the transition toward a fossil free future, will need to include the voices of all stakeholders: the EHA is committed to continue to support the H2 and FC choir and signal new waves and channels. So stay tuned for more updates  and  tweets on @h2euro!
