Critical raw materials for hydrogen

Critical raw materials for hydrogen

H2 Talk webinar series: “Critical raw materials for hydrogen - Building a resilient and sustainable supply chain ”. 

This H2Talk has provided participants with an enriching discussion on the role of critical raw materials (CRMs) for the development of a resilient and sustainable hydrogen supply chain. CRMs are essential for the ramping up of the hydrogen economy, yielding key materials for electrolysers and fuel cells, as well as for renewables and electric motors.  

During the webinar, industry experts and policymakers discussed the EU regulatory and policy framework related to CRMs, such as the Critical Raw Materials Act, the eco-design and circularity initiatives, and how those impact the European hydrogen industry. Experts  also focused on Europe’s energy diplomacy and how it will help supply agreements with third countries, fostering ties with existing partners while finding new ones. This paradigm will repower EU’s ambitions, untapping access to CRMs for industrial players and overcoming scarcities of components deemed essential for the deployment of the hydrogen economy.
