Three hydrogen projects in which RWE is involved have been shortlisted for funding from the Important Project of Common European Interest (IPCEI) programme: a joint project with partners from the GET H2 initiative as well as the AquaPrimus 2 and HyTechHafen-Rostock projects. This was announced today by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi) and the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI). These ministries are coordinating the pre-selection of projects at the German national level.
According to the German government, a total of 8 billion euros in funding is available for German projects, with which the BMWi, the BMVI and the German federal states intend to drive forward the development of the hydrogen economy in Germany and Europe. 230 project applications were submitted. After technical examination and evaluation, 62 projects have now been shortlisted to take part in a selection process at the European level. In this so-called matchmaking process, the projects proposed by the EU states and Norway will be linked up with each other and evaluated.
Nominated projects with RWE participation
The European matchmaking process will start on 8 June. The first funding decisions are expected to be released in spring 2022.
