To the attention of President von der Leyen - Industry letter Clean Hydrogen 20200624.pdf
Dear President von der Leyen,
On behalf of a wide coalition comprising EU manufacturing industry, the gas industry,
trade unions, energy technology producers and other sectors, we call on the EU to adopt
in its upcoming Hydrogen Strategy a technology-neutral approach to hydrogen, so that
all clean hydrogen technologies can be used to unlock the nascent hydrogen market
while developing EU hydrogen ecosystems to ensure the competitiveness of EU industry
and secure high-quality jobs for Europeans.
Please find enclosed our position in the attached letter.
Thank you for considering our requests, which we deem crucial for Europe to create
opportunities and remain in the lead, not only in the deployment, but also in the
manufacturing of clean technologies such as hydrogen, in the short-, mid-, and long-term
both for economic growth, public acceptance and decarbonization.
We are available to discuss any of this further at your earliest convenience.
