The EHA used the quiet August month in Brussels to visit EU officials to inquire about the Commission’s plans for energy and transport infrastructure. As this autumn a communication on EU energy infrastructure development is expected as well as on a European Energy Strategy till 2030, the EHA last month has submitted a positon paper to facilitate  more concrete reflections on how a hydrogen infrastructure can best be integrated in national and local energy systems. We are also working on a short paper for the TEN T consultation to keep the hydorgen topic visible in these developments as well..  In view of the European Roadmap 2020 for Hydrogen Transport that is currently being prepared and the increasing inquiries of car companies on how and where to develop the first  local refuelling infrastructures in Europe, EU, national and local authorities will need to start to reflect on what the use of hydrogen will mean for their energy production and distribution as well as for industrial development .
