Hydrogen Storage in European Subsurface



WP9 Major conclusions and implementation plan in the EU

This GIS showcases the data on potential geological storage opportunities across Europe. The Hystories geological GIS incorporates publicly available data on saline aquifers and depleted oil and gas fields that could potentially be developed for underground hydrogen storage (UHS). This GIS is accompanied by D1.4.
