Croatia’s first hydrogen production facility is expected to be built by 2025, and the government has already initiated a procedure to adopt a national strategy in this field.

In February this year, the Croatian government initiated a procedure to adopt the country’s hydrogen strategy for the 2021-2025 period, and the drafting of the document is already under way, it was said at a round table on hydrogen as a fuel of the future.

Croatia is already drafting a hydrogen strategy until 2050

Talking about the role of hydrogen in Croatia’s energy transition, participants in the round table noted that hydrogen helps increase the application and integration of renewable energy sources, store energy, and decarbonize transportation and industry, as a fuel or raw material.

Oil company INA is preparing to introduce hydrogen in transportation

Croatian oil company INA is already working on preparations to introduce hydrogen in the transportation sector. INA’s Tomo Galić noted that environmental protection efforts will certainly lead to a drop in demand for diesel fuels, and that the company will have to offer an alternative, renewable fuel, namely hydrogen.

Iva Ridjan Skov, a Croatian lecturer at Copengahen’s Aalborgu university, said that hydrogen has a role in the decarbonization of transportation in Denmark, and that the country is working on technologies for the conversion of hydrogen into liquid and gaseous fuels.

The EU’s strategy envisages 40 GW of electrolyzers by 2030

The European Union (EU) adopted its hydrogen strategy last year, envisaging investment until 2030 into the construction of 40 GW of electrolyzers, as well as additional solar and wind capacities to supply renewable electricity to these facilities for the production of hydrogen. The EU will also invest in the transportation, storage, and distribution of hydrogen, including in filling stations.
