The Norwegian Hydrogen Forum, Icelandic New Energy, Hydrogen Denmark, Vätgas Sweden and the VTT Technical Research Center of Finland have already taken a common initiative through the Scandinavian Hydrogen Highway Partnership (SHHP) to highlight hydrogen development projects in small and medium-sized enterprises.
Nordic Innovation has has co-funded the SHHP partnership to facilitate a hydrogen infrastructure for larger vehicles through the establishing of the Next Wave project (Next Nordic Green Transport Wave – Large Vehicles).
The goal of SHHP’s new business venture Next Wave – assisted by Kunnskapsbyen Center of Innovation – is to stimulate the globally leading hydrogen technology companies in the Nordic region to establish the world’s first expansion of hydrogen infrastructure for larger vehicles, in order to accelerate a greater roll-out of hydrogen trucks and buses. The project will create a Nordic corporate collaboration for heavy transport and maritime solutions.
Nordic Innovation is an organization under the Nordic Council of Ministers that works to promote sustainable growth, entrepreneurship, innovation and competitiveness in Nordic business. The Nordic Council of Ministers is the official intergovernmental body for cooperation in the Nordic region. The regional cooperation includes 26 million inhabitants in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Iceland, as well as the autonomous areas of Greenland, the Faroe Islands and Åland.
