HyWays IPHE is a specific support action (SSA) to assess and compare the development efforts for the European Hydrogen Energy Roadmap prepared by HyWays with international roadmapping or comparative activities of IPHE partner countries.

In a first step, it aims at an in-depth assessment and comparison of the individual elements of the national/ regional strategies, modelling approaches and experiences in the EU and the U.S.. This will include infrastructure analysis, stakeholder consultation processes, actor analysis, micro-, meso- and macro-economic modelling, Well-to-Wheels (WtW)- analyses, cashflow analysis, interfaces and interaction between the different types of models used, basis for scenario development, etc.

Modellers from the different nations/world regions shall compare in detail their models and experiences in dedicated workshops in order to foster a better mutual understanding of the models and their contribution to the hydrogen road mapping process, facilitate the exchange of the methodologies and, where applicable, endorse the adoption of individual approaches from each other. This may include tasks and goals of expected results, models used, stakeholders involved, process related issues, communication with stakeholders and dissemination activities, timelines, and progress. Whenever applicable a benchmarking between individual models (e.g. for the EU-US case: E3database and H2A+GREET) may be performed using generic datasets.

In a second step, the project aims at broadening its scope within IPHE by including and involving other IPHE partner countries such as Japan, China, India etc. Workshops will be held, introducing these partners into the EU-U.S. work and getting them engaged in this process.

The deliverables of the project shall be reports presenting the results and presentations of the assessment and comparison activities, for both the bilateral EU-U.S. comparative activities in STEP 1 as well as for the reviews of the different state of maturity of the systems analyses and roadmapping activities achieved by the different IPHE partners participating in STEP 2.

The learning effects for each IPHE partner are expected to be an important outcome from these comparative and benchmarking exercises hence leading to a better alignment of the road mapping activities. Future hydrogen roadmap development and proceeding implementation efforts in these partner countries shall benefit from the results, especially through benchmarked lessons learned for avoiding mistakes, eliminating redundancies, inefficiencies and removing, unfounded frictions and misunderstandings between the different approaches and underlying drivers. The results are also expected to provide broadly proven and consented common elements of approaches on how to implement hydrogen technologies and infrastructures efficiently.

The active participation of all relevant stakeholders/ players, most of them operating in the global scene, will definitely contribute to a better alignment of the activities undertaken.
