FME HyValue

The NORCE-led center HyValue is a Centre for Environment-friendly Energy Research (FME). HyValue will develop knowledge, methodology, and innovative solutions for zero-emission hydrogen-based energy carriers.

Building on Norwegian comparative advantages, HyValue aims to develop knowledge, methodology and innovative solutions for hydrogen energy carriers to build and support a competitive hydrogen energy sector. HyValue addresses five grand challenges related to development of a competitive Norwegian hydrogen energy sector:

1. How can we produce hydrogen and ammonia with minimum energy loss and at a lower cost?
2. How can we create a safe and resilient transport and distribution system for hydrogen-based fuels?
3. How can we develop end-user applications for hydrogen-based energy carriers?
4. How can we stimulate investments and build systems with acceptable risk for all stakeholders?
5. How can we build public trust and confidence in a hydrogen economy?

HyValue facilitates a tightly integrated, focused research program including six scientific Work Packages (WPs). The WPs are showed below.
