4 STRATEGIC PRIORITIES

  • Decarbonize transportation
  • Decarbonize industry
  • Produce renewable / low-carbon hydrogen
  • Structure the sector to create jobs and economic activity
50+

Projets (R&D, rollout of ecosystems, training, etc.) initiated in fives years

1

regional hydrogen plan with a €110 million investment in the sector

1

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)

Sucess stories

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 Martin
President and co-founder, CARBON
Fos-sur-Mer

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.
