4 STRATEGIC PRIORITIES
- Decarbonize transportation
- Decarbonize industry
- Produce renewable / low-carbon hydrogen
- Structure the sector to create jobs and economic activity
Projets (R&D, rollout of ecosystems, training, etc.) initiated in fives years
regional hydrogen plan with a €110 million investment in the sector
regional hydrogen club and a network of more than 100 stakeholders
MAJOR PROJECTS & PROGRAMS TO STRUCTURE THE REGIONAL ECOSYSTEM
- The Marseille-Fos hydrogen basin: decarbonizing the industrial-port area
- H2MED or BarMar: Underwater renewable hydrogen pipeline between Barcelona and Marseille, which should transport 10% of European consumption when it is made operational before 2030
- Multiple projects across the territory: Hynovar (83), Cannes Lérins (06), H2 Vaucluse (84), Gap (05)
CARBON chooses Fos-sur-Mer in the South of France for its first photovoltaic gigafactory
"In Fos-sur-Mer, CARBON is joining a region rich in tradition and history, looking to the future, particularly in the field of low-carbon and sovereign energy".
Pierre-Emmanuel MartinPresident and co-founder, CARBON
ITER is a great opportunity to boost skills and economic development in the South of France.
500 companies are already working for this one-of-a-kind research facility, and new companies are setting up in the region. Providing them with a personalized service is at the heart of Agence ITER France's mission, along with the regional and national public players involved.
