Grande Region Hydrogen EEIG

The aim of the Grand Region Hydrogen is to develop and support a hydrogen ecosystem in the Greater Region of Saarland (Germany), Lorraine (Grand-Est, France) and the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg. Therefore, on the one hand, it contains producers of hydrogen and, on the other hand, the energy and steel industry as the main consumers of H2. For this Creos and GRTgaz will establish an approximately 100-kilometre-long hydrogen network in the Grande RĂ©gion.
