The Federal government is investing 30 million euros in the production of green hydrogen

The federal government has decided to allocate 30 million euros to six Belgian projects for the production of green hydrogen.

Last year, the executive launched a call for projects for the production, transport, and use of hydrogen, all financed by a budget of 50 million euros from the EU recovery plan.

The first phase of this project call covers an amount of 30 million euros, with a ceiling of 15 million per project.

Among the winners is the engineering company John Cockerill, based in Seraing (Liège). The company aims to develop a complete ecosystem around the Belgian hydrogen strategy, including production capacity and a supply chain.

At the end of 2021, the federal government decided to make Belgium a hub for green hydrogen, considered as one of the vectors of the energy transition.

This green hydrogen would be produced using wind and solar energy, as well as solar energy that the government wants to import from countries such as Namibia or Oman.
