Will Georgia and Ukraine enter the green hydrogen market?

Green Hydrogen is having a moment around the world with the EU setting up ambitious targets. In July, the European Commission published its 2030 hydrogen strategy. Against a current installed base of 0.1 gigawatts (GW) the European Union is targeting 6 GW by 2024, 40 GW by 2030 and 500 GW by 2050.

Can the EU meet some of its green hydrogen future supply from neighbouring countries such as Ukraine and Georgia?

The Georgian government has recently asked the EBRD to explore the country’s potential for generating green hydrogen which could then be blended and transported to end-users through existing gas pipelines.

Ukraine has the potential for substantial hydrogen production: it is estimated that approximately 505,133 million cubic metres of green hydrogen could be produced in Ukraine annually and various hydrogen-related projects are starting to be unveiled in the country. 

The UK-based Invest In Network is holding the Energy Talk for all the interested parties to discuss the opportunities the emerging markets present and to hear from experts representing Hydrogen Europe, EBRD, Ukrainian Hydrogen Council and USAID Energy Program.
