Summary Points:

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs presented the Hydrogen Strategy of the Czech Republic as well as specific hydrogen projects at an international hydrogen conference in July 2021 (at the time the strategy was marked as subject to interdepartmental review).

Reports indicate the strategy includes four pillars and is divided into three phases:


  • production of low-carbon hydrogen
  • use of low-carbon hydrogen
  • transport and storage of hydrogen
  • promotion of hydrogen technologies.


Phase 1 – focuses on the use of hydrogen under the clean mobility concept;

Phase 2 – planned from 2026, involves operational industrial testing of the use of hydrogen

Phase 3 – starting next decade when it is assumed that hydrogen can be transported using well-established pipelines without subsidy. It is anticipated the construction and repurposing of hydrogen pipelines will have commenced and that hydrogen will be used in many industries.
