Ukraine, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, and Germany positively assess the possibility of launching a joint hydrogen corridor.

Operators of gas transportation systems in Ukraine, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, and Germany have completed a preliminary feasibility study for repurposing gas pipes for hydrogen transportation. The study demonstrated that it is technically possible to transport 120 GWh of hydrogen daily through Central Europe by 2030. Modernizing the gas pipeline from the Ukrainian border to the south of Germany will require an investment of €1-1.5B. The probable transportation cost will be from €0.10 to €0.15 per kg per 1,000 km. According to current plans, work on the project will begin in 2024, and should be completed by 2030. Companies interested in participating may consider applying for IPCEI status – an important project of pan-European interest. This will provide for European investment.
