OPTHYCS aims to develop a new sensor technology that will lead to an increase in the safety level of H2 applications, as well as minimize potential H2 releases to limit the climate impact of H2 uptake.

This project has received funding from the Clean Hydrogen Partnership under Grant Agreement No 101101415. This Partnership receives support from the European Union’s Horizon Europe Research and Innovation program, Hydrogen Europe and Hydrogen Europe Research.

About the project

One of the key concepts underpinning the Green Deal adopted by the EU in 2019 is the need to combat climate change by limiting global temperature rise to 1.5ºC or less by the end of the century, achieving zero CO2 emissions and neutrality for all other greenhouse gases.

Among the most viable options for achieving these goals, H2 has emerged as a required fuel and commodity needed for the decarbonization of the generation, distribution, storage, and energy consumption.
