Tight schedule and requirements to prepare the Clean Hydrogen funding applications

Director Timo Ropponen leads the Energy and Manufacturing team at Spinverse. Timo and his team support and facilitate a wide variety of customer projects in the sector, including those related to clean hydrogen. Timo reminds: “As we anticipated, the schedules are quite tight for the submittance of the funding applications, so the work for the project proposals should be well underway for these very competitive funding calls. Crystallising the project strategy, scope and resources, and identifying the partners takes time."

Focus on research and demonstration projects

Project Manager Sonja Auvinen has been following the development of the Clean Hydrogen Partnership programme with a keen eye. According to Sonja, the first Clean Hydrogen calls are directed to research projects in five main sectors, namely: Hydrogen production, Hydrogen storage and distribution, Transport applications, Clean heat and power and Cross-cutting themes. In addition, funding will be released for flagship Hydrogen Valley projects, where a cluster of operators in the hydrogen economy form a tight network also geographically.

Sonja says: “In the future, not only basic R&D projects are supported, but funding will also be allocated to large demonstrations and flagships of industrial applications with budgets in the range of 10-20 M€. This will broaden the opportunities for companies to implement hydrogen technologies.”
