The hydrogen project of the Ukrainian Regional Gas Company (RGK) has become one of 750 projects that were selected by the European Alliance for Pure Hydrogen and included in the portfolio of investment projects.
The European Alliance, created under the auspices of the European Commission, presented a complex of hydrogen projects, which includes the RGK hydrogen project. The aim of this portfolio is to integrate all parts of the hydrogen market and specific projects with investors and funding.
“RGK is represented in this portfolio by a hydrogen project, which is aimed at studying the impact of hydrogen and gas-hydrogen mixtures on gas distribution networks. Now, thanks to this research and development, Ukraine occupies a good position on the European hydrogen map and can realize its powerful potential for the development of the market for hydrogen and other synthetic gases, "said Stanislav Kazda, Development Strategy Director and Head of the RGC's hydrogen project.
The RGK Hydrogen Project is a program for the preparation of gas distribution systems in Ukraine for the delivery of hydrogen and other "green" synthetic gases to consumers. The project has been operating since 2020, when 5 special test sites for hydrogen testing of gas networks and equipment were created. The scientific partners of the project are eight scientific institutions, including the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine.
“Pure hydrogen is playing a key role in our European industry's greener transition. Our recipe for supporting the large-scale deployment of clean hydrogen technologies by 2030 consists of investments, supporting regulatory frameworks and developing partnerships between industry, governments and civil society, ”said European Union Commissioner for the Internal Market Thierry Breton.
