There is a noticeable increase in momentum in fuel cells and hydrogen, with European companies and researchers playing a key role. But where will the sector go in the future? And how can European players best be supported in this growth phase?
E4tech is leading a project to map and analyse the fuel cells and hydrogen supply chain in Europe, for the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH 2 JU), working with Ecorys and Strategic Analysis Inc. We will conduct an in-depth analysis of the European FCH sector, its role in global value chains, and future opportunities and threats. We will produce a comprehensive overview of the sector in Europe, and recommend actions to support the successful growth of a European supply chain. The work will also show the contribution that the FCH sector can make to green growth in Europe, in addition to climate and energy goals.
We would like your help to give the most comprehensive picture possible to the FCH 2 JU – so they can best allocate funding and inform their discussions with policy-makers – by providing important information about your organisation and its role in FCH value chains. You can do this through:
• Helping us build an overview of players in European FCH value chains, through completing a short online questionnaire. The questionnaire asks for basic information about your organisation, its role in the supply chain, and current activities. It should take about 15 minutes to complete.
• Letting us know your views on Europe’s competitiveness, through completing our competitiveness survey. Here you can express your views on Europe’s capabilities and prospects compared with other leading world regions and players.
If you are in any way part of the European FCH supply chain then please fill the questionnaire and the survey. The answers will help the FCH 2 JU to know where and how to support the sector, so do ensure your voice is heard!
