“Mobilità Idrogeno Italia” (MH2IT). Italy calls for hydrogen mobility, according to the National Plan for Alternative Fuels to be submitted to EU Commission


Mr. Alberto Dossi - President of the Steering Committee of the initiative “Mobilità Idrogeno Italia” (MH2IT) and Chairman of Sapio Group – presented last 8th of July in Catania the scenario of Italy’s National Plan for Hydrogen Mobility.
The National Plan envisages the realisation of 20 hydrogen refuelling stations in Italy at 2020 (10 for light -10 for heavy vehicles), 197 refuelling stations at 2025 (141 for light – 56 for heavy vehicles), mainly in those cities where hydrogen mobility trials are already underway. The 2050 target will be of more than 5.000 hydrogen refuelling stations.
MH2IT brings together the italian stakeholders involved in the industrial chain of hydrogen and fuel cells, and supported Italian National Authorities in drafting the plan that will be sent to the European Commission by november, 2016, according to the EU Directive 94/2014, concerning the deployment of an European distribution network for alternative fuels.

Hydrogen Park hosted "Mobilità Idrogeno Italia"


On 3 March 2016 in Marghera, Hydrogen Park hosted the third plenary meeting of the Working Groups of Mobilità Idrogeno Italia, an initiative promoted by Italy's leading operators in the sector, with the aim of defining the National Plan to build hydrogen-distribution infrastructure at the service of road mobility, and inland waterways.

The Board of Mobilità Idrogeno Italia is chaired by Alberto Dossi, President of Sapio Group, a leading manufacturer of technical gases, that has a large facility in Marghera.

The national hydrogen plan will be presented in the coming months to the Ministries of Economic Development and Infrastructure, in good time for it to be submitted to the European Commission as per the road map provided for by EU Directive 94 of October 2014.

This Directive has defined a common framework of measures that Member States have to implement by 2025 in order to create the infrastructures for distributing such alternative fuels as electricity, hydrogen, biofuels, natural gas and LPG.

The goal of the European Commission, which co-funds investments for infrastructure construction, is to minimize the dependence on oil and to reduce the environmental impact of the transport sector as a whole.

In this context, as known, Hydrogen Park is following, in particular, the HEPIC project - led by the Venetian company Alilaguna SpA - which aims to develop the first passenger lagoon craft run on hydrogen fuel cells and batteries.



On the occasion of the visit to Venice of Ms. Chiyo Ikeda, Senior Staff Member of Tokyo Metropolitan Government, a workshop sponsored by Hydrogen Park and Veneto Innovazione was held in Marghera last 23 November, with the aim to discuss the future of hydrogen technologies. 

Ms. Ikeda provided an overview of Tokyo’s investment plan toward realizing a hydrogen-based society, to be implemented within next five years for the Olympic Games 2020. 

Italian speakers (see the agenda below) described some of the projects currently underway: the initiative “Hydrogen Mobility Italy” (mobilitah2.it), aimed at developing a national plan of hydrogen fuelling infrastructure in Italy; HEPIC project - promoted by Hydrogen Park and managed by Alilaguna – for the realization of the first Fuel Cell boat, suitable for public transport in the Venice lagoon; the innovative solutions for hydrogen mobility developed by McPhy Energy.

15.30 Fusina – Enel Powerplant “A. Palladio” - Visit to the hydrogen powered gas turbine



Following the contacts with Hydrogen Park, a group of 24 representatives of the Japanese Association of Electrical Construction (JECA) visited ENEL’s power plant “A. Palladio” in Fusina (Venice), to get sound information about the advanced zero emissions gas turbine featuring hydrogen combustion cycle. 

A further meeting was held at Vizianello Shipyards, who is running, in cooperation with Alilaguna, a project concerning a new “zero emission” passenger vessel, equipped with a Hydrogen+FuelCell powertrain. JECA people were cruising around the lagoon onboard SCOSSA, the first full electricboat of Alilaguna’s fleet.
