European TSOs advance Nordic-Baltic Hydrogen Corridor

Hydrogen

Europe – Gas transmission systems operators (TSOs) from six EU countries, including Gasgrid Finland, Elering, Conexus Baltic Grid, Amber Grid, Gaz-System and Ontras, united under the banner of the Nordic-Baltic Hydrogen Corridor, signing a cooperation agreement to advance hydrogen infrastructure development.

The Nordic-Baltic Hydrogen Corridor envisions a transformative path, enhancing regional energy security, curbing dependence on imported fossil energy, and playing a pivotal role in decarbonizing societies and energy-intensive industries along the corridor. Aligned with the REPowerEU 2030 targets, this corridor aims to contribute significantly to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions by replacing fossil-based production and consumption with green hydrogen.

Advancing infrastructure

The project strategically supports the diversification of energy supplies, facilitating the rapid deployment of renewable energy. With a keen eye on achieving the EU target of 10 million tonnes of domestic renewable hydrogen production by 2030, the corridor serves as a conduit for transporting green hydrogen produced in the Baltic Sea area. This green hydrogen can be channeled to supply consumption points, industrial clusters along the corridor, and even central Europe, fostering a robust market for hydrogen and leveraging abundant renewable energy resources.
