Hydrogen Europe Research Feedback: Net-Zero Industry Act
- Policy Working Group
The Net-Zero Industry Act (NZIA) has set important targets to ensure that the fuel cells and hydrogen sector will be developed for the benefit of the European economy. In a context of exacerbated world competition, ensuring that the manufacturing capacity of strategic net-zero technologies reaches at least 40% of the Union’s annual deployment needs by 2030 is a clear commitment for a European strategic independence. For this, public procurements will be instrumental in promoting European technologies respecting certain sustainability and resilience criteria. Hydrogen Europe Research fully supports the objectives of the Net Zero Industry Act, and recommends that additional aspects should be pursued to ensure a comprehensive approach for the hydrogen ecosystem.
