Launch of SEAFUEL: the European project for sustainable integration of renewable fuels in local transportation

Official kick-off meeting of SEAFUEL project was held in Galway on 25 and 26 January 2018

With a total budget of EUR 3,5 million and for 3 years, the SEAFUEL projects aims to use the renewable resources across the Atlantic Area to power the local transport fleet and support the shift towards a low-carbon economy. The project will use the expertise and infrastructure of the partners in renewable energy, namely solar, wind and marine, to demonstrate the viability of hydrogen as a fuel to be used by the local transport authorities.

Among the first activities of the project was the celebration of the first transnational meeting of partners that took place on January 25th and 26th at the facilities of the National University of Ireland (NUI Galway), which leads the project. Since the beginning of the project in December 2017, the kick-off meeting provided the perfect opportunity for all partners to review the project objectives and the work plan, with a short overview on each project activity foreseen in phase 1. Furthermore, on January 26th a session was held with external experts from the Big Hit and GenComm projects, the second one funded by INTERREG NWE, with the intention of establishing communication bridges with other complementary hydrogen projects from the beginning of the project.

The aim of SEAFUEL is to demonstrate the feasibility to power local transportation networks using fuels produced by renewable energies and seawater, with no net carbon footprint as promoted by the resource-efficient flagship initiative COM (2010) 2020. It will cover technical innovation by a demonstration plant, a framework for policy implementation and a sustainability analysis of production, distribution and usage of hydrogen as an alternative fuel in remote Atlantic regions. SEAFUEL proposes a sustainable way to power local transportation in isolated regions using renewable resources such as sun, wind and seawater.

This project is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund through the 2014-2020 INTERREG Atlantic Area Programme.
