The research programme

The Hydrogen research programme is coordinated by the Swiss Federal Office of Energy (SFOE). In close collaboration with various federal, cantonal and municipal authorities, it supports research and development in the area of hydrogen, as well as efforts to bring products using hydrogen technology onto the market.

The long-term priorities of Switzerland's hydrogen research are as follows:

  • Production methods: photo-electrolysis, solar thermal hydrogen production, high-pressure and high-temperature solid matter electrolysis
  • Storage of hydrogen in solid matter for mobility applications
  • Integration of national activities into international co-operation

In addition to research and development activities, the programme also promotes the practical application of hydrogen in pilot and demonstration projects, and thus supports the introduction of the resulting products onto the market.
