Question for written answer E-002609-19
to the Commission
Rule 138
David McAllister (PPE)

 Subject:  The EU's hydrogen strategy
 Answer in writing 

The climate goals set by the Paris Agreement require global warming to be kept below two degrees Celsius. To achieve this, greenhouse gas emissions must be permanently reduced and an energy transition carried out across all sectors of the economy.

Hydrogen technologies can play a significant role in this. Research and development have been extensively pursued in recent years. However, hydrogen technologies are used only occasionally on a large industrial scale.

1. How does the Commission view the importance of hydrogen technologies for the Union-wide energy transition in the near future and in the long term?

2. What measures is the Commission taking to ensure that Europe’s research lead in the field of hydrogen technologies can be used as a global competitive advantage?
