Poland is EU's third-biggest hydrogen producer, official tells MPs

01.12.2021 20:00
Poland is working to create a clean hydrogen sector and is already the European Union's third-largest producer of the fuel, a deputy climate and environment minister said on Wednesday. 
The Polish government is pursuing a national hydrogen strategy that calls for the creation of five hydrogen valleys and growing investment in eco-friendly buses, among other objectives.

Echoing an earlier statement by the country's prime minister, Ireneusz Zyska told parliament that Poland was the fifth-biggest hydrogen producer worldwide and that clean hydrogen technology would help it "achieve climate neutrality and make the economy more competitive."

The Polish government last month adopted a national hydrogen strategy that calls for the establishment of five "hydrogen valleys" in the country by 2030, among other objectives.

Zyska told lawmakers on Wednesday that under that strategic document Poland was aiming to "build 32 hydrogen loading-and-bunkering stations by 2030."

Moreover, the government is drawing up "a huge legislative package" to create "an enabling regulatory framework for the growth of the hydrogen industry," Zyska said.

Poland's hydrogen strategy to 2030 includes objectives such as developing modern hydrogen technology in the energy and heating sectors, and making hydrogen an alternative fuel in transport, public broadcaster Polish Radio's IAR news agency reported last month.

Other objectives include supporting the decarbonisation of manufacturing processes; developing a safe and well-performing system for the transmission, distribution and storage of hydrogen; and creating a stable regulatory framework for the sector, the Polish climate and environment ministry said in a statement in November.

Poland's Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki in October told a business conference that his country was the world's fifth-largest producer of hydrogen and predicted that the fuel "will play a gigantic role in the technological transformation of the world" during the next few decades.
