Our core objectives

1

Give a voice to the renewable hydrogen industry in Europe.

2

Build a high-level and interdisciplinary network of innovators, investors, entrepreneurs, and corporate leaders from the rapidly growing renewable hydrogen community, including industrial off-takers.

3

Position Europe as the global leader in renewable hydrogen.

4

Inform the policy debate with concrete proposals for the scaling up and market uptake of renewable hydrogen – traceability, infrastructure investments, market design, and incentives.

Set-up

Set up by SolarPower Europe, WindEurope and supported by Breakthrough Energy, the Coalition builds up on the success of the Choose Renewable Hydrogen campaign, which ended up having renewable-based hydrogen acknowledged in the EU Hydrogen Strategy as the only sustainable solution. The campaign was led by a core group of utilities and solar and wind technology providers, committed to developing renewable hydrogen.

Renewable hydrogen is produced from electrolysers using renewable electricity to split water. Rapidly scaling renewable hydrogen calls for faster deployment and availability of additional renewable electricity and accelerating the commercialization and scale-up of electrolyser production

Nils Aldag, CEO, Sunfire & Vice-Chair Renewable Hydrogen Coalition

Offshore wind is perfect for producing renewable hydrogen on an industrial scale. However, the production of hydrogen at sea requires substantial investments. The Renewable Hydrogen Coalition’s work to build an enabling framework for renewable hydrogen aims to help speed up the development and deployment of this crucial technology needed to reach European climate goals.

Sven Utermöhlen, CEO Offshore Wind, RWE Renewables

Getting targeted policies in place to support renewable-based hydrogen production will be determinant to enable green hydrogen to achieve its full potential in the decarbonization of Europe. By joining the Renewable Hydrogen Coalition, Smartenergy sends another important signal of commitment towards the energy transition in Europe, ready to join forces with EU partners and policy-makers to accelerate the green hydrogen path into cost competitiveness and by that facilitate investments into green projects across the whole value chain.

Horst H. Mahmoudi, CEO & Executive Chairman, Smartenergy

At Fronius we believe that green hydrogen will be an important part of the future of energy. It is crucial that we think about every sector, such as energy production, mobility and heat recovery, in a holistic way.

Elisabeth Engelbrechtsmüller-Strauß, CEO, Fronius International GmbH

Renewable hydrogen is a critical component to Europe's decarbonisation solution. As a member of the Renewable Hydrogen Coalition, our goal is to support the growth and adoption of green hydrogen across Europe, and beyond. Altenex Energy, an Edison Energy company, is honored to become part of this network of corporate leaders, innovators, and industrial off-takers who are seeking to advance Europe's clean energy transition.

Oded J. Rhone, CEO, Edison Energy

Europe has the potential to become a global leader in green hydrogen generation technologies. The Renewable Hydrogen Coalition is a great facilitator to enable this potential by advocating for the needs of innovative solutions like the AEM technology developed by Enapter.

Philip, Hainbach, Head of Energy Policy and Governmental Affairs, Enapter

Renewable-based hydrogen can enable renewables to contribute even more greatly to decarbonising the European economy. Once the right policies unlock its full value, its versatility to tackle hard-to-electrify sectors will play a key role in the fight against climate change.

Rafel Mateo, CEO Energy, Acciona

By producing and using renewable hydrogen in industrial products such as silicones, WACKER can reduce fossil feedstock in chemical processes and help improve the carbon footprint of our customers and our own products. With the Renewable Hydrogen Coalition we have found the right industrial partners to voice our common demand to put in place the right framework for a competitive renewable hydrogen market by 2030, which first and foremost prerequisites access to more renewable electricity

Dr. Christian Hartel, CEO, Wacker Chemie AG

We are at a critical juncture in the quest for decarbonization. Green hydrogen has huge potential to help meet global net-zero targets but we need to act now. Consensus between industry, policymakers and investors is crucial to move forward and that’s why the Renewable Hydrogen Coalition plays such an important role. We have a global challenge and it will only be solved if we have a unified voice which will help us springboard the development of green hydrogen. We are excited to see what this Coalition is able to achieve.

Juan Gutierrez CEO, Global Services, Siemens Gamesa

With the current cost trend of renewables and hydrogen production equipment, we see that green renewable hydrogen will soon outcompete fossil solutions in the relatively near future. This is key to decarbonize our planet and a must of a robust energy transition. The Renewable Hydrogen Coalition has an important role to play in making this happen and we in Nel are proud to be a part of that. Together, we will create lots of future oriented jobs and at the same time save the planet, what a great combination. The time for renewable hydrogen is now!

Jon André Løkke, CEO, Nel Hydrogen
