EU Framework Programmes have given increasing levels of funding to fuel cell and hydrogen technologies.
In Horizon 2020, the current EU Research and Innovation funding programme (2014 -2020), the fuel cell and hydrogen technologies are considered one of the solutions for enabling the EU to reach its ambitious goals in reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and increase of renewables and energy efficiency.
In May 2014 the European Council has decided for a follow up of the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU), now called FCH2JU, which will run for from 2014 and 2024 as a public-private partnership between the European Commission, European industry and research organisations to facilitate the commercial deployment of fuel cell and hydrogen technologies.
