European Reference Project "EUH2STARS" has started

01/01/2024 | Report


We are pleased to announce that all relevant documents including the consortium agreement have been signed by all project partners and the EUH2STARS project has started.

The project consortium, comprising of natural gas storage operators, technology providers, utility, research- and governmental organisations, is entrusted by the European Commission to demonstrate a competitive, complete and qualified underground hydrogen storage (UHS) in depleted porous natural gas reservoirs at technical readiness level (TRL) 8 by the end of the decade.

Furthermore, EUH2STARS is a European flagship project for the conversion of existing underground natural gas into hydrogen storages and will pave the way for their integration into the future European hydrogen infrastructure. This will be demonstrated via several replication sites which are an integral part of the EUH2STARS project.  

As part of the Horizon Europe Framework Programme (HORIZON) the project was awarded funding of around 20 million euros and is scheduled to run until September 2029.

We are looking forward to a good cooperation and a successful development of the project.
