Which Italian companies are involved in European hydrogen projects

16 Oct 2023

Across Europe, several companies are joining projects aimed at investing in the use of hydrogen as a sustainable alternative to fossil fuels. Following this perspective and the European Green Deal that envisages the decarbonisation of our continent with zero emissions by 2050, Italy too is increasingly committed to developing the various hydrogen-related technologies. In fact, there are numerous Italian companies involved in European projects that aim to develop innovative technologies and promote the adoption of hydrogen as a clean energy resource. Let us see together.

The main European hydrogen projects

In recent years, several companies in Italy have recognised the potential of hydrogen. As a result, the need to think about new strategies for energy supply, sustainability and autonomy is becoming increasingly evident.

In general, there are a number of important international projects on the European scene: these are funding for Italian and European companies that can play a key role in the development and implementation of hydrogen-related technologies.

Let’s take a brief look at the main European calls for proposals:

  • IPCEIs (important projects of common European interest) are projects financed at European level where member states agree on the type of project and select the participating companies. For a project to be funded as an IPCEI it must at least contribute to the achievement of EU objectives.
  • LIFE Programme 2021-2027 is the European Union’s financial instrument supporting environmental and climate action projects that aims to make Europe the first climate-neutral continent.
    • Horizon Europe is the European Union’s main funding programme for research and innovation in the world of hydrogen: from research and innovation projects, through market deployment, to technology testing in industry.
  • Hydrogen Europe Research, is one of the three components of the Clean Hydrogen Partnership. It is the European Commission’s point of reference for research and innovation and the development of the hydrogen supply chain.

Italian companies participating in European hydrogen tenders

There are numerous projects throughout Europe and these opportunities can play a key role in the development and implementation of hydrogen-related technologies. In Italy, several large companies have signed up:

Simplifhy: the Italian company for the decarbonisation of industry through hydrogen

At Simplifhy, we work with many years of experience to propose innovative solutions for the production, distribution and use of hydrogen. As the first Italian solution provider, we are able to offer strategies and systems for the decarbonisation of industry. In particular, we also support companies in participating in regional, national and European calls for tenders for the funding and implementation of innovative projects for decarbonisation with hydrogen-based technologies.
Specifically, we offer a consultancy service by helping several companies to draw up the technical report and supporting them in all the phases necessary for the realisation of the hydrogen plant project:
  • From the design and feasibility study phases
  • Engineering and project execution (including authorisations and paperwork)
  • Construction
  • Plant installation and maintenance
Discover our applications based on hydrogen technology and contact us for more information.

In Simplifhy we offer strategies and systems for the decarbonisation of industry, through deployment of Hydrogen-based technologies as an alternative fuel.

Our plants are tailoredaccording to the necessities of each specific project.
