Researchers: Finland lacks an overall vision on clean hydrogen

Finland aspires to be a pioneer in the production of clean hydrogen. According to the decision principle of the Finnish government, Finland is well placed to produce at least ten per cent of the zero emission hydrogen of the European Union by 2030. Several hydrogen production projects are planned, whereas in some of the projects an investment decision has been taken.

So far, however, Finland has not produced a strategic overall vision on the role of clean hydrogen in the green transition, shows a recent Science Sheet ‘Hydrogen in the Green Transition’ by the Finnish Academy of Science and Letters.

For the benefit of science

For the good of society

The Finnish Academy of Science and Letters is a broad-based learned society founded in 1908 with the principal aim of promoting scientific research and acting as a bond between those engaged in advanced research.

The Academy currently has over 800 full and 180 other members, distinguished academics on whom membership has been conferred in recognition of their achievements. 

We arrange meetings, discussions and educational events. We also produce scientific publications and do issue comments on questions of research and researchers. We make proposals concerning science and those engaged in it, thus taking an active part in the long-term planning of science policy.

The Academy contributes over 2.5 million euros in grants and awards annually.
