The Irish Energy Storage Association (IESA) has called upon the government to establish a Hydrogen Task Force to develop a National Green Hydrogen Strategy.
Recently, the European Commission launched its strategy document entitled “A hydrogen strategy for a climate-neutral Europe” in which it states “hydrogen [is] essential to support the EU’s commitment to reach carbon neutrality by 2050 and for the global effort to implement the Paris Agreement while working towards zero pollution”. Additionally, similar hydrogen strategies have been formulated by the Netherlands, Germany and Portugal as well as China, Japan and Australia.
The Irish Energy Storage Association believes that immediate action is required from the Irish Government if we are not to be left behind by our fellow EU-Members and the wider global economy in this rapidly developing green hydrogen economy.
