Elektroprivreda Republike Srpske Targets Hydrogen Production

The Bosnian utility company, Elektroprivreda Republike Srpske (ERS), has set its sights on hydrogen production within the Republika Srpska region. A pivotal step towards this ambition is the issuance of a public call to draft a “Hydrogen Development Roadmap and Strategy” tailored to the company’s needs.

The roadmap is intended to provide a long-term vision that includes an action plan for hydrogen utilisation. This covers the cultivation of a novel economic chain anchored in hydrogen, encompassing hydrogen production, the establishment of supporting infrastructure, workforce development, new technological advancements, and manufacturing facilities based on hydrogen-centric technologies. It also aims to champion and foster awareness about the usage of hydrogen within the public sector and broader business community.

The overarching goal of the roadmap is to align ERS’s sustainable development with the European Green Deal and the EU guidelines for executing the green agenda in the Western Balkans, simultaneously aiming for climate neutrality.

A salient economic dimension of the roadmap is the transition to clean energy sourced from hydrogen. This aligns with EU regulations in this domain, which is expected to bolster ERS’s competitiveness, not only within the regional market but also within the broader EU market.
