HYDEA is about making green hydrogen technologies a big part of how ports work in the Atlantic Area. Green hydrogen is a clean energy source, and the project wants to use it along with other renewable energies in ports to make things more energy-efficient and reduce carbon emissions.

To make this happen, the project plans to develop tools and approaches that will be like building blocks for changing how ports use energy. They want to address the challenges and problems that come with using hydrogen in ports. Here's how:

  1. Helping everyone understand, making sure that everyone involved knows more about hydrogen and how to use it;

  2. Trying out new technologies, supporting research and development by testing out different technologies in real situations, like pilot projects along the hydrogen supply chain;

  3. Figuring out how to make it work as a business, looking at different ways to make using hydrogen in ports a practical and profitable choice.

  4. Creating plans for ports and policymakers, helping ports and policymakers in the Atlantic Area to play a big role in using hydrogen as a clean energy source.

The main goal of HYDEA is to make ports in the Atlantic Area more energy-efficient and use clean energy like hydrogen, contributing to a cleaner and more sustainable way of running things.
