Research and development projects as well as joint investments for hydrogen economy are the Cluster's key missions. Its members are cooperating in the fields of information exchange, building economic connections, services and technologies. Cluster establishes broad cooperation with domestic and foreign organizations and other cluster networks and conducts educational and promotional activities as well.
The Cluster launched its activities in August 2017. Its mission is to to initiate actions to increase the importance of hydrogen technologies and clean coal technologies, by supporting members of the Cluster and cooperating entities in the development of innovative solutions for energy efficiency and low-carbon economy.
The cluster will operate both the Research and Development Center and the Technology Transfer Platform to support companies' work on technology projects, and at a later stage, to support testing and verifying of new solutions.
Activities related to building the Cluster's potential, allowing to obtain a leader status in the area of the economy related to the use of hydrogen technologies and clean coal technologies, including eco-innovation and development of energy efficiency and energy efficiency management, using modern hydrogen technologies and clean coal.
Promotion and implementation of national solutions in the field of hydrogen technologies, among others as research and implementation works in the National Hydrogen Technology and Pure Coal Technology Program.
Creating a cooperation platform to effectively connect and use the potential of its associated entities for the promotion and development of hydrogen technologies and clean coal technologies.
Promoting, supporting and developing research, products and services for the application of hydrogen technologies and clean coal technologies in the national economy in order to significantly raise the technological level of the Polish economy both inside and outside the European Union.

The Polish Conference for Hydrogen Energy and Technologies (PCHET) has already become a permanent fixture in the landscape of substantive industry events. We are already inviting you to the next edition of the conference, which will take place on October 4-5, 2023, at the Pomeranian Science and Technology Park, in Gdynia.
The main topic of this year's PCHET will be large-scale production of green hydrogen and innovative methods of its production, and the goal is no longer just to popularize this energy carrier, but primarily to seek partnerships for cooperation and project implementation.
The transformation to a hydrogen economy is inevitable. Europe is undertaking investments showing that hydrogen will be the primary energy carrier for the European economy. Currently, a number of investments are being made in the context of storage and conversion of electricity from RES. Hence, when talking about renewable energy, especially from offshore sources, we should have in mind emission-free hydrogen, or so-called green hydrogen.
As part of the paid participation packages, we will invite you to an evening meeting combined with the presentation of awards, for successes in the implementation of hydrogen projects. We would like to recognize and promote Polish hydrogen projects, and make it easier for their developers to enter European markets. For larger companies and investors, we will discuss changes in state aid and new public support systems for hydrogen investments! These mechanisms are new in 2023 and it will be valuable, for you, to talk about them with experts.
On the first day of the event, we will conduct parallel conference panels and workshops for you. These workshops are aimed at popularizing knowledge about the hydrogen economy, strategies adopted by other EU countries, as well as discussing basic technological issues concerning electrolyzers, fuel cells and their application in the economy.
During this year's PCHET 2023 conference, we also anticipate current topics, including a special session on the hydrogen economy and its role in supporting Free Ukraine and rebuilding the economy after the war. We will discuss with Ukrainian representatives the importance of energy stability in peacetime and wartime. We will also learn about the EU commission's plans in this regard.
We are already inviting speakers, exhibitors and sponsors, to co-create this unique event on the map of Polish conferences, the hydrogen technology industry!
Global decarbonization and ongoing war in Ukraine enforce even faster actions for new energy sources. All countries looking into hydrogen are I the same time building partnerships, as no one alone is able to achieve this transition.
If you wish to understand South Korean and EU hydrogen market to find cooperation and investment opportunities it is the best webinar for you.
It is also a chance for EU an Korean investors to see Polish and EU investment incentives and business support schemes for hydrogen technologies development.
Short market overview:
South Korea (Korea) has set itself ambitious goals for its hydrogen economy for 2030 and beyond but is already a global leader in the transition to hydrogen: the country boasts almost half of the world's installed capacity of utility-scale stationary fuel cells and its largest automotive company, Hyundai Motor Company, has suppliedalmost 60% of the world's Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEV) since launching its first
commercial fuel cell vehicle in 2013. Korea is now looking to build on these strong foundations, a strategy that enjoys broad support across both the public and private sectors.
The EU strategy on hydrogen was adopted in 2020 and put forward a vision for the creation of a European hydrogen ecosystem from research and innovation to scale up production and infrastructure to an international dimension. Hydrogen is also an important part of the EU strategy for energy system integration. The strategy explored how producing and using renewable hydrogen can help decarbonise the EU economy in a cost-effective way, in line with the European Green Deal, and contribute to the post-COVID-19 economic recovery.
18 May 2022 - PKN ORLEN has signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Alstom for the supply of zero-emission, eco-friendly trains and hydrogen fuel for public rail transport.
The corporation, which is consistently implementing the hydrogen strategy, announced earlier this year, that it will provide the refuelling infrastructure for trains produced by Alstom. The first hydrogen vehicles are likely to roll out on regional lines within two years.
Under the agreement, Alstom will cooperate with PKN ORLEN in participating in proceedings organised by public rail transport operators. Alstom will be responsible for the supply of zero-emission trains powered by hydrogen fuel cells. In turn, PKN ORLEN will be responsible for the distribution, storage and supply of hydrogen fuel for these trains.
