"That's our aim: 40 GW of renewable electrolysers in Europe," says EU Commissioner Frans Timmermans

The European Union and collaborating countries are likely to surpass a current target to install a combined 80 gigawatts (GW) of renewable hydrogen electrolysers by 2030, EU Commissioner Frans Timmermans announced on Monday.

He referred to a previous target for installing electrolysers that pass renewable electricity through water to extract hydrogen for use as a fuel, without creating planet-warming emissions.

"That's our aim: 40 GW of renewable electrolysers in Europe and 40 GW in Europe's neighbourhood with export to the EU. I think it's realistic to say we will probably outperform that by 2030," he told an event in Brussels.

Timmermans did not specify which non-EU countries would host the electrolysers, but separately referred to possible partnerships with Africa and Latin America.
