The bid price is the requested unit contribution (fixed premium) per kg of RFNBO hydrogen production which will be paid for a maximum period of up to 10 years.

The following activities can be funded:

Installation of new RFNBO hydrogen capacity (i.e. hydrogen production capacity for which at the time of the grant application the start of works did not yet take place) as well as the verified and certified production of RFNBO hydrogen from those installations (in kg of produced volume) for a period of up to 10 years.

Only projects with a minimum installed capacity of the electrolyser of at least 5 MWe will be eligible.
