Amber Grid and the European Hydrogen Backbone

The Lithuanian gas transmission system operator Amber Grid has joined the largest hydrogen initiative in Europe, the European Hydrogen Backbone.

The initiative brings together 29 gas and energy infrastructure operators in 27 European states having a common vision – a single climate-neutral Europe. The initiative aims to make a significant contribution to developing a market for renewable resources and green and low-carbon hydrogen.

In 2022, this initiative is expected to focus on technological and economic assessments of hydrogen supply corridors and to promote regional cooperation between infrastructure operators in conducting this research.

Nemunas Biknius, CEO of Amber Grid, said, “In cooperation with other European operators, we will create a vision of a common European hydrogen network, which also involves Lithuania, taking over best practices and sharing the knowledge we have.”
