where is the eu energy going
Where is the EU’ energy going?

Energy infrastructure priorities for 2020 and beyond - A Blueprint for an integrated European energy network - COM(2010)677: Defines EU priority corridors for the transport of electricity, gas and oil. Identifies the energy infrastructure map which will be needed to meet our 2020 energy objectives: hydrogen is mentioned 4 times in this dossier!

Energy 2020, A strategy for competitive, sustainable and secure energy - COM(2010) 639 : defines energy priorities and action-plan for the next ten years; hydrogen is mentioned.

Smart Cities : DG Energy is coordinating this initiative as a joint effort with DG Enterprise and Industry and DG Research, that will select around 30 cities, based on their Sustainable Energy Action Plans: consultation deadline May 13, 2011

Europe 2020 flagships: An Industrial Policy for the Globalisation Era - COM (2010)614 and Innovation Union : could provide a stepping stone for implementation of FCEVs.

eha tracks eu dossiers
EHA tracks EU Dossiers

EU Clean and Energy Efficient vehicles strategy - COM (2010)186 : sets out a comprehensive strategy for clean and energy efficient vehicles aiming at maximizing the decarbonisation potential in transport particular focus on public procurement vehicles: EHA is part of three Working Groups.

Communication on roadmap for low-carbon economy by 2050, also with a view to determining the necessary scenarios for 2030 : will set out framework of policies and actions in a variety of policy areas, required for shift towards a resource efficient and low-carbon economy.

White paper on Sustainable Transport for Europe : lays out the transport strategy for the next 10 years: came out March 28, 2011 conventionally fuelled cars will be banned from EU cities by 2050.

TEN-T : The Trans European Network for Transport (TEN T) is a multi-billion program to restructure the EU’s road, maritime, rail and aviation infrastructure.

Innovation Union - COM(2010) 546: will use public sector intervention to stimulate the private sector and to remove bottlenecks which stop ideas reaching the market.


CHIC Background

  • CUTE/ECTOS: 2001 – 2005
  • - Demonstration of a fleet of 30 fuel cell buses in regular public transport
  • HyFLEET:CUTE: 2006-2009
  • - 47 hydrogen powered buses in public transport
  • - 2.600.000 km* in public service, 555 tons* of H2 refuelled
  • - More than 1 million liters of Diesel replaced
  • - Fuel cell buses are suitable for operation
  • in public transport
  • - Development of a new, fuel efficient fuel
    • cell hybrid bus concept

* figures include CUTE and ECTOS fuel cell bus operation

26 fuel cell hybride buses will be put into regular bus service in 5 cities over the next year
26 Fuel cell hybride buses will be put into regular bus service in 5 cities over the next year

Clean hydrogen transport systems as a commerical reality in Europe


Objectives of CHIC

  • The CHIC project will: implement clean urban mobility in 5 major European regions through the deployment of 26 hydrogen FC powered buses in medium sized fleets, and the enlargement of the hydrogen infrastructure systems
  • The CHIC project will: facilitate the development of clean urban public transport systems and mobility action plans into 14 new European regions
  • The CHIC project will: actively collaborate, transfer and secure significant key learning from previous FC projects into the CHIC stakeholders, thereby greatly accelerating the achievement of JTI and EC objectives
  • The CHIC project will: deliver greater community understanding of ‘green’ hydrogen powered FC buses, leading to increased political acceptance and commitment
