The main objective of the project is to establish an excellent TRANSNATIONAL NETWORK to advance the R&D, implementation and commercialisation of HYDROGEN as an energy vector for future power generation in the ATLANTIC AREA, thus providing energy efficient solutions to strategic sectors in the Atlantic region such as transport, marine, ultra-low energy building supply, and/or portable and stationary devices.

An international and interdisciplinary team has been assembled which consists of 6 highly specialised R&D groups and 5 SMEs from all COUNTRIES along the ATLANTIC AREA. Through collaborative research and synergies within the Team, HYLANTIC will address research and innovation for smart and sustainable growth covering sectoral and regional needs.

The project scope includes R&D of new materials and innovative technologies, combined with advanced simulation and optimisation techniques for HYDROGEN GENERATION through renewable energy and local waste streams. Also included in the research programme are the design of safe STORAGE SYSTEMS and EFFICIENT and low cost ENERGY SYSTEMS through innovative fuel cell and H2 combustion engines and their IMPLEMENTATION in prototypes.

Associating research clusters, platforms, public institutions, and regional & national governmental within THE ATLANTIC area will:

  •  Facilitate technology transfer
  •  And will led to integration of scientific developments into energy policies by gaining approval from the public.
