Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki and Minister of Climate Michał Kurtyka initiated the creation of the Hydrogen Valley in Lower Silesia during the Economic Forum in Karpacz. “Poland is the world’s fifth largest producer of hydrogen”, said the Prime Minister, calling hydrogen the fuel of the future.
“For many of you who listen to the talks about hydrogen, it may seem like a kind of novelty. But it was also shale gas or shale oil, which turned out to be a revolution”, argued Mateusz Morawiecki. He added that hydrogen, which is the lightest element, will play a gigantic role in transforming technology in the world.
Dolnośląska Dolina Wodorowa is one of five to be built in the country under the Polish Hydrogen Strategy. It is located in one of the special economic zones, which is to facilitate the development of this industry. The hydrogen valley is to be a place where fuel cells and hydrogen buses will be produced, and low-emission hydrogen will be used on a large scale as a source of clean energy,according to the Industrial Development Agency website.
