New CEE members join the European Hydrogen Backbone initiative

The European Hydrogen Backbone (EHB) initiative has welcomed six additional members: Amber Grid (Lithuania), Bulgartransgaz (Bulgaria), Conexus Baltic Grid (Latvia), Gassco (Norway), Plinacro (Croatia) and REN (Portugal).

By broadening its base, this initiative has now reached 29 energy infrastructure operators covering 27 European countries. All members are united through a shared vision of a climate-neutral Europe enabled by a thriving renewable and low-carbon hydrogen market.

Since its inception in 2020, the EHB has contributed to the development of a European hydrogen market through the publications of its flagship EHB maps, with a vision of a pan-European hydrogen transport infrastructure.

In 2022, the EHB initiative will focus its efforts on developing techno-economic assessments of frequently mentioned hydrogen supply corridors and the potential role of regional cooperation by infrastructure operators in carrying them out. In parallel, the group will be updating, expanding and digitising its network maps while revamping the EHB website to provide stakeholders easier access to key insights.

Through these activities, the EHB aims to accelerate Europe’s decarbonisation journey by defining the critical role of hydrogen infrastructure – based on existing and new pipelines – in enabling the development of a competitive, liquid, pan-European renewable and low-carbon hydrogen market. The initiative seeks to foster market competition, security of supply, security of demand and cross-border collaboration between European countries and their neighbours.
