Hydrogen for transport
in the Scandinavian region
The Nordic Hydrogen Partnership – Showing a multitude of pathways for hydrogen supply using local resources.
The Nordic Hydrogen Partnership (NHP) was established in 2006, when the different Nordic hydrogen organizations joined forces to coordinate the market introduction of hydrogen cars and HRSs to the Nordic market. The Nordic Hydrogen Partnership originally was given the name Scandinavian Hydrogen Highway Partnership (SHHP), but this name was changed by the end of 2020 to accommodate the broadened scope of the organization.
At the same time, NHP has been hosting the recurring conference HFC Nordic, which is held every second year in a Nordic country, last time in 2018 in Iceland. Next time will be in Denmark in the city of Aalborg.
NHP consists of regional clusters involving major and small industries, research institutions, and local, regional and national authorities. The national networking bodies – Norsk Hydrogenforum in Norway, Hydrogen Sweden in Sweden, Icelandic New Energy in Iceland, Brintbranchen in Denmark and VTT in Finland – act as NHP coordinators.
The cooperation focus on maintaining a good dialogue with car, truck and bus manufacturers as well as politicians to ensure continued expansion of the Nordic hydrogen infrastructure.
