The project aims to develop investment and policy reform proposals that can help the Hungarian government reduce the country's dependence on Russian fossil fuels. All this will be summarised in a national action plan in line with the REPowerEU package of proposals, which will function as an extra chapter of the Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF) and RRF Plan.
The main objectives of REPowerEU are energy diversification, clean energy transition and energy savings, along which we will examine Hungary's dependencies and weaknesses and then develop solutions, including reforms and investments.
The priorities of the Hungarian government/departmental ministry (TIM) in the framework of the project are mainly limited to the hydrogen economy and the industrial use of hydrogen, where we will carry out in-depth analysis.
The consultancy is funded by DG Reform (the European Commission's Directory General for Structural Reforms) and implented by an international consortium. Energiaklub is responsible for the activities carried out in Hungary, as a subcontractor of Trinomics.
In addition to experts of Energiaklub, colleagues from the Environmental Planning and Education Network and Wattmanager are involved.
