Finland to become the leading hydrogen economy in Europe – H2 Cluster Finland publishes a hydrogen economy strategy


By leveraging its competitive advantages, Finland aims to produce 3 million tons of hydrogen annually by 2035, generating €33 billion in new annual revenue.

"The new government program is based on Finland becoming a powerhouse of clean energy. It is the most important industrial and climate action of the decade, and it is based on hydrogen economy," commented Kai Mykkänen, Minister of the Environment and Climate.

Finland holds a favourable position: the society is stable, infrastructure is well-planned, grid electricity is clean and the price is competitive in Europe, there is a favourable ratio of wind and solar power, and there is immense potential for developing both. By 2030, Finland could produce over 14% of emission-free hydrogen in the EU. Hydrogen economy will contribute to Finland's well-being by reducing dependence on imports in various industrial sectors, thereby strengthening self-sufficiency and energy security. Additionally, hydrogen economy has the potential to create up to 115,000 new jobs by 2035.

The strategy has been developed in collaboration with officials, industry unions, and companies involved in the entire hydrogen value chain. Achieving the set goals requires seamless and agile cooperation across industries. It also defines practical measures to achieve the set objectives. Minister Mykkänen states that the newly formed government also intends to promote hydrogen economy in practise by expediting and streamlining permitting processes, creating incentives for diverse electricity production growth, and aiming for rapid and comprehensive adoption of carbon capture and utilization by the mid-2030s.

"Finland needs to define which opportunities we want to focus on to genuinely leverage the unique opportunity to position Finland as a pioneer in Europe's hydrogen economy," says Olli Sipilä, CEO of Gasgrid and leader of the Hydrogen Cluster's strategy team.

The strategy is accessible at H2 Cluster website after publishing (27 June, 13.00 EEST):

Nopeasti muuttuva pakkausregulaatio haastaa ruokapakkaamisen arvoketjuja koventuvilla kiertotaloustavoitteilla30.1.2024 08:30:00 EET | Tiedote

EU tavoittelee jätteiden määrän vähentämistä ja ilmastonmuutoksen pysäyttämistä, mutta nopeasti muuttuva regulaatio haastaa esimerkiksi ruokapakkaamisen parissa toimivia yrityksiä. Marraskuussa käynnistynyt EU-rahoitteinen Value4Pack-hanke tukee yrityksiä ja muita ruoan pakkaamisessa mukana olevia toimijoita valmistautumaan EU:n pakkausregulaation muutoksiin. Hanketta koordinoi puolalainen NATUREEF-yhdistys, ja suomalainen CLIC Innovation Oy vahvistaa hankkeessa eurooppalaisten ruokapakkaamisen arvoketjujen yhteistyötä ja tukee kehitystä paikallisesti Suomessa.
