The long trajectory in the research and development of hydrogen technologies and the commitment of the Aragonese Executive to maintain and promote the lines of work have been protagonists this morning of the European Week of Regions in Brussels. The Director General of Industrial Promotion and Innovation of the Government of Aragon, Mar Paños, has intervened in this conference, showing her support to the hydrogen valleys that allow “creating regional ecosystems in which the whole hydrogen value chain is present by grouping initiatives of production, storage and final use of this energy vector”.
In his presentation, Paños highlighted the trajectory of the Aragon Hydrogen Foundation, which brings together more than 90 companies, organizations and research centers in its board of trustees. He highlighted the Foundation full development of the fourth master plan, which ends in 2025 and contains a strategic line on these regional valleys. In addition, the Aragon Hydrogen Foundation is the only entity working in six different valleys funded by the European Union and the Spanish entity that has been awarded more projects of the main European funding program for hydrogen, the Hydrogen Technology Platform (Clean Hydrogen Partnership Joint Undertaking CH2JU).
