Representatives of nine central and eastern European and Baltic states, Hungary among them, signed the cooperation agreement of the 3 Seas Hydrogen Council in Paris on Thursday, aiming to develop the region’s hydrogen sector. Czechia, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia and Ukraine signed the agreement at the sector’s largest conference, Hyvolution, the Hungarian Hydrogen Technology Association said.
The association said the aim was to explore and use opportunities to speed up the transition to hydrogen as an energy resource, aiding the fulfilment of zero-emissions goals. Association head István Lepsényi said signatories would work to ensure fair distribution of EU funding in central and eastern Europe. He said he hoped the agreement would support regional funding, cooperation in the sector and the development of competitive green energy.
