We will support up to 15 local authorities from regions in EU Cohesion Countries, Outermost Regions and islands of EU member states or associated countries to develop their concepts for regional hydrogen and fuel cell projects into detailed work plans. These projects will accelerate the progress of hydrogen deployment in these regions by providing a blueprint to other regional hydrogen projects, as part of a drive towards carbon neutrality.

Stage 2 of the application progress is now open. All applicant regions have now been contacted to inform them of the Stage 1 evaluation outcome. Shortlisted regions that have been invited to Stage 2 should now submit their response through the “Stage 2 Application” tab by Monday 5th December 2022 at 23:59:59 (CET). Instructions on how to access this were provided in the invitation email. Question-by-question guidance on Stage 2 applications can be found under the “Downloads” tab.

Regions that were unsuccessful in Stage 1, that expressed an interest in the PDA Observer Network, will be contacted about this in due course.
