The target set by France in the Multiannual Energy Programme (PPE) for 2028 is to convert up to 40% of industrial hydrogen to decarbonised hydrogen.
In September 2020, the French government announced the National Hydrogen Strategy, one of the most ambitious in the world. It anticipates €7.2 billion of investment in the hydrogen sector by 2030, 54% of which would be for the decarbonisation of industry. By 2023, €3.4 billion will be allocated to the hydrogen sector.
Initiatives have already been launched, including calls for proposals for ADEME. Others are in the pipeline, such as the hydrogen production and consumption support mechanism.
