KSSENA organized the partners’ kick-off meeting of the H2MA project – Green hydrogen mobility for transport in the Alpine region on Wednesday, February 22nd, 2023, in Celje. The meeting was attended by 11 partner organizations. The project is approved under the program priority “Carbon-neutral and resource-sensitive Alpine region” and will last until the end of October in 2025.
The lead partner of the project, the Institute Energy Agency for Savinja, Šaleška and Carinthia Regions, KSSENA, organized the kick-off meeting of the H2MA (Green Hydrogen Mobility for Alpine Region Transportation) project at its business premises in Celje, on the 22nd of February 2023.The project was approved in the framework of the first call of the Interreg Alpine Space program, in the financial period 2021-2027. The meeting was attended by 19 partners from 11 partner organizations and 5 regions of the Alps: Slovenia, Italy, Germany, France and Austria.
“The H2MA project works towards the transnational development of green hydrogen transport infrastructure and increasing the share of sustainable and green hydrogen mobility in the Alps.By jointly developing a collaboration mechanism, strategies, tools and resource pooling, the project will improve the awareness and capacity of local decision-makers, relevant stakeholders and other interested entities (including energy and transport agencies, hydrogen infrastructure providers and RES producers), for joint planning and pilot testing the first zero-emission hydrogen routes in the Alpine regions,” they wrote on the web portal of the KSENNA institute.
The initial partnership meeting was organized in three sections.
The first section was intended to present the operation of the KSSENA institute and the visit of the mayor of Celje. The second part of the partners’ meeting was devoted to discussing the content of the project and the implementation timeframe, while the third part of the meeting was devoted to a tour of the old part of the city center of Celje.
The first activities of the project will be identifying existing capacities for the production of green hydrogen and potential locations for setting up the production and charging infrastructure for green hydrogen, as well as the exchange of knowledge through a study visit to the partner region.
