IEA’s Hydrogen TCP* undergoes a major renovation to reinforce the global implementation of hydrogen and international collaboration.
This renovation is based on the following three pillars:
– The new Strategic Work Plan (2020-2025) sets very ambitious goals to make the most of current international hydrogen momentum, focusing on hydrogen as a facilitator for a smart, sustainable and decarbonized energy system based on renewables and low-carbon technologies for transport, industry, building, power and energy network applications. The Strategic Work Plan will position the Hydrogen TCP as a hub for international collaboration on hydrogen R&D&D within the IEA Secretariat, the IEA Technology Network and the greater energy community, while closely cooperating with the new IEA hydrogen initiative.
– A newly elected leadership team: Chairman, Paul Lucchese (CEA, Commissariat à l’Energie Atomique et aux Energies Alternatives) and the Vice-chairmen, Eiji Ohira (NEDO, New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization) and Marcel Weeda (TNO, the Netherlands Organization for Applied Scientific Research) will count with greater participation of the Executive Committee members to help with the implementation of different areas for the Plan.
– A new Technical Secretariat with extensive experience in hydrogen technologies and managing of sectorial associations. ARIEMA** Energía y Medioambiente S.L. will support the IEA Hydrogen TCP future developments.
