WaterstofNet to support 2 regions in the Benelux from the FCH JU’s Project Development Assistance Initiative
WaterstofNet has been selected to provide project development assistance to hydrogen and fuel cell projects in Texel and Flemish Limburg. These two regions are among the 11 EU regions and cities that have successfully applied to the Expression of Interest for project development assistance launched by the FCH JU earlier this year. WaterstofNet will assist Texel and Flemish Limburg to developing concepts for regional hydrogen and fuel cell projects into detailed work plans.
The FCH JU Project Development Assistance Initiative has attracted 35 EU regions and cities to apply for project development support. The 11 EU regions and cities that have been selected are spread across 10 EU Member States and will receive support from a consortium consisting of WaterstofNet, Spilett, Element Energy, Trezors and WiseEuropa. WaterstofNet is supporting the successful applicants in the Benelux region.
Adwin Martens, director of WaterstofNet: “WaterstofNet has developed a track record of more than 10 years in supporting regional stakeholders in developing local initiatives into concrete projects. Together with other renowned European hydrogen consultancy providers, WaterstofNet is using its expertise to assist ambitious EU regions and cities in the frame of the FCH JU Project Development Assistance Initiative. Together we are able to develop local hydrogen ecosystems as a breeding ground for projects and strengthen the position of Europe and the Benelux in the development of hydrogen initiatives."
