HyBReED support obtained


The National Institute of Chemistry was successful in the ARIS call for proposals to co-fund longer-term large collaborative research and innovation programmes at TRL 3-6 level under the Roadmap for Recovery and Resilience. It has received support for the HyBReED programme to develop resilient chemical energy storage using hydrogen and batteries.

The HyBReED programme brings together the best national partners in hydrogen, batteries and industrial transition and follows the objectives of the European Green Deal, REPowerEU and the Agenda for Recovery and Resilience. It focuses on the development and deployment of sustainable solutions that contribute to the further development of the energy sector.

Through a structured approach that includes project management, research and development, stakeholder engagement, monitoring and evaluation, the programme primarily aims to achieve its objectives and positively influence/improve the energy sector. The main objective of the programme is to develop and implement sustainable solutions in the field of energy supply.

To achieve these objectives, the programme will have the following components and structures:

Developing methods for the efficient production, storage and use of hydrogen; Developing better system components for energy devices that can be integrated into the existing energy grid; Exploring the potential of using hydrogen as an energy carrier in energy-intensive industries; Ensuring the longevity of energy devices by developing hydrogen-resistant materials; Developing a comprehensive understanding of the technical, economic and environmental factors related to the production, storage and use of hydrogen.
The results of the call are published at HERE.

Start date of the programme: 1.1.2024

Duration of the programme: 30M

Value of the programme: EUR 4,769,890.38, of which the Republic of Slovenia, the Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Innovation and the European Union - NextGenerationEU co-finance: EUR 3,731,440.60
