The European Hydrogen Backbone (EHB) initiative

The European Hydrogen Backbone (EHB) initiative consists of a group of thirty-two energy infrastructure operators, united through a shared vision of a climate-neutral Europe enabled by a thriving renewable and low-carbon hydrogen market.


The EHB initiative aims to accelerate Europe’s decarbonisation journey by defining the critical role of hydrogen infrastructure – based on existing and new pipelines – in enabling the development of a competitive, liquid, pan-European renewable and low-carbon hydrogen market.

The initiative seeks to foster market competition, security of supply, security of demand, and cross-border collaboration between European countries and their neighbours.


Participating companies include Amber Grid, Bulgartransgaz, Conexus, CREOS, DESFA, Elering, Enagás, Energinet, Eustream, FGSZ, FlusSwiss, Fluxys Belgium, Gas Connect Austria, Gasgrid Finland, Gassco, Gasunie, GASCADE, Gas Networks Ireland, GRTgaz, National Gas Transmission, NET4GAS, Nordion Energi, OGE, ONTRAS, Plinacro, Plinovodi, REN, Snam, TAG, Teréga, Transgaz, Transitgas AG and the TSO of UA.
