Renewable Hydrogen

Given the challenges facing Brittany, the climate emergency of course, but also the regional unbalance related to the concentration of activities, since 2017 the Region has been working on a widescale plan to identify a new territorial project for Brittany: ecological transition, climate transition, economic transition, social transition, but also a transition of methods.
Renewable Hydrogen
To face these challenges, renewable hydrogen has high potential for the future energy transition. It provides solutions against the problems of intermittence of renewable energies. It can be transported and stored as liquid or gas, and is therefore suited to industrial processes, production, storage, mobility (land, sea) and the transport of renewable energy.

Brittany intends to position itself as a leading region on the market of renewable hydrogen applications, both in terms of the expertise of its businesses and in the distribution of technologies and the appropriation by its citizens. The aim is to structure and develop an innovative economic sector, generating jobs both new and/or from reconversions.

This Brittany hydrogen industry will develop around regional particularities: maritime industry, smart grid projects deployed across the territory, renewable marine energies, storage applications (transport and static) and agribusiness logistics.

The Brittany Region’s action plan is organised in three parts:

  • Develop local loops to initiate the use of renewable hydrogen (infrastructures & uses)
  • Position the Brittany hydrogen industry among the fields of excellence (development & innovation)
  • Launch a structuring collaborative investment plan in Brittany
