Germany and other EU states are allowed to support a European hydrogen project with up to 6.9 billion euros. The project – the so-called infrastructure wave called “Hy2Infra’ – consists of 33 individual projects from 32 companies.

There are 24 projects in Germany, and the federal and state governments want to provide a total of around 3.4 billion euros for this. The hydrogen produced will be available to companies in the steel, cement, chemical and refinery sectors by mid-2027.
