EHB Infrastructure update – including latest feasibility 

The European Hydrogen Backbone Initiative developed visionary maps for future hydrogen pipeline infrastructure. Our recent maps update from September 2022 included significantly accelerated changes in the pipelines infrastructure of various countries.

Since then we have seen increasingly visionary hydrogen developments in the market. In order to provide an up-to-date overview of the infrastructure vision, we incorporated several updates into our interactive dynamic maps on our website.

Main changes in this iteration:

  • In the Czech Republic, an additional pipeline connecting Germany and the Czech Republic has been created. This pipeline aims to connect high potential hydrogen supply areas in Northern Germany and Baltics with expected high demand cluster in South Germany via the Czech Republic. Planned commissioning is subject to valid contractual obligations.
  • In Portugal, Spain and France, the infrastructure is moving forward to 2030 with a new added stretch following the new offshore H2 interconnection between the Iberian Peninsula and Central Europe, including storage capacities in South West of France.
  • In Belgium, the connection between Zeebrugge and Dunkerke has been accelerated from 2040 to 2030.
  • In Germany, the maps were brought in line both with the recent PCI submissions by German TSOs and the hydrogen projects included in the updated version of the German National Network Development plan 2022-2032.
  • In Denmark, the connection between Bornholm and Lubmin is set to be a separate pipeline in 2030, and the connection going through Jutland has been moved to the west.
  • In Italy, a new segment is included near Rome, and new segment to Switzerland will be built by 2030.
