Finland adopts hydrogen resolution – Finland could produce 10% of EU’s green hydrogen in 2030

12 February 2023

Finland’s government has adopted a resolution on hydrogen in which it describes the countries’ objectives regarding hydrogen and the measures to promote them.

According to the government, Finland’s goal is to become the European leader in the hydrogen economy in the entire value chain, and it has the capacity to produce at least 10% of the EU’s emissions-free hydrogen in 2030.

The government said Finland’s competitive advantages include predictability of the operating environment, seamless permit procedures, and land use planning. It also emphasised that the promotion of the hydrogen economy requires a sufficient amount of skilled labour and that ensuring safety is an integral part of the development and use of new hydrogen technologies.

The resolution is based on a government policy adopted in the government budget session in autumn 2021, according to which a national hydrogen strategy and a subsequent government resolution will be prepared as part of the climate and energy strategy, and it supports the ongoing strategy work of the hydrogen cluster consisting of companies.
