Sammen med en række teknologimedlemmer har Brintbranchen i denne uge sendt et åbent brev til DG Clima om behovet for at fremrykke tidslinjen for projektimplementeringen af storskala projekter under EU Innovation Fund. Sammen med Ballard, Blue World Technologies, Green Hydrogen Systems, Nel, Siemens Gamesa og Topsoe udtrykte Brintbranchen bekymring for timingen af implementeringen af det tredje call for storskala projekter:
“We fear that timing of the call may make it impossible to deliver on REPowerEU and live up to the commitments of the Joint Declaration. The call is planned to close in March 2023 and, given the time required for application reviews, award decisions, and negotiations, FID would come (expectedly) during Q4 2023. The approx. 2-year construction period for a next-generation, large-scale generation plant, e.g. manufacturing of electrolyser components could only start thereafter. This leaves manufacturers with a very tight schedule to implement the projects by the 2025 commitment agreed with the Commission in the Joint Declaration. Similarly, for projects that could be ready by 2025, this could also represent nearly a 1-year delay, as well as for the achievement of the REPowerEU goals.”
