Poland: A letter of intent was signed to establish a partnership for the construction of a hydrogen economy

Yesterday, July 7, 2020, conference, titled the "Hydrogen Poland Strategy until 2030", took place with participation of climate minister Michał Kurtyka and deputy minister Ireneusz Zysa.

During the meeting, representatives of the climate ministry together with energy and transport sector companies signed a letter of intent to establish a partnership for the construction of a hydrogen economy.

The Minister of Climate announced the start of work on the Polish hydrogen strategy, whose main objectives are based on:

  • Creating a value chain for low carbon hydrogen technologies; 
  • Strengthening the role of hydrogen in building Polish energy security; 
  • Implementation of hydrogen as a transport fuel; 
  • Preparation of new regulations for the hydrogen market.

According to the estimates of the Ministry of Climate, the development of the hydrogen sector in the next decade may significantly contribute to Poland's reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants into the atmosphere, in particular from the transport sector. The Ministry of Climate also expects an increase in hydrogen consumption in heating, thanks to the development of power-to-gas / liquid technology.

The industrial and scientific potential in Poland allows the construction of a fuel cell factory. The Ministry of Climate will try to create the best conditions for investing in this technology in Poland. The construction of distribution and refueling infrastructure will be another element of the hydrogen strategy.

The Polish hydrogen strategy is currently under works in the Ministry of Climate. In autumn this year, it will be sent for public consultation, and by the end of the year it will be forwarded to the Council of Ministers for consideration.
