Inaugural Taiwan-Poland Hydrogen Cooperation Meeting Initiates Bilateral Energy Dialogue
In 2023, Taiwan and Poland signed an MoU on establishing a hydrogen energy cooperation working group, and the Energy Administration of the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Taiwan, and the Ministry of Climate and Environment, Poland, held the inaugural "Taiwan-Poland Hydrogen Cooperation Working Group Meeting" virtually on April 16, 2024. The meeting was jointly hosted by Mr. Wu Chih-wei, Deputy Director-General of the Energy Administration, Ministry of Economic Affairs, Taiwan, and Mr. Marek Popiołek, Deputy Minister of Climate and Environment, Poland, in which the two sides exchanged insights on hydrogen energy policies, technologies, decarbonization applications, and hydrogen refueling stations, aiming to explore substantive collaboration opportunities and deepen bilateral relations for the future.

Poland released its "Polish Hydrogen Strategy until 2030 with an outlook until 2040" in November 2021, planning on using hydrogen for energy, heating supply, transportation, and the industrial sector, ensuring the country's industrial competitiveness while Poland implements decarbonization. In alignment with the global trend, Taiwan has also integrated hydrogen energy as one of the twelve key strategies in its "Taiwan's Pathway to Net-Zero Emissions in 2050" in 2022.

Representatives from Taiwan included members of the Ministry of Economic Affairs' Hydrogen Promotion Taskforce. Deputy Director-General Wu emphasized the pivotal role of this meeting in fostering exchanges and bilateral collaborations in the field of hydrogen energy. The discussion topics focused on hydrogen technology research and development, as well as hydrogen storage. The Energy Administration provided updates on hydrogen energy development in Taiwan, while the Industrial Technology Research Institute shared insights into Taiwan's advancements in hydrogen fuel cell systems for vehicles. Furthermore, the Industrial Technology Research Institute highlighted progress in hydrogen production through water electrolysis. Additionally, CPC Corporation Taiwan introduced the mobile hydrogen refueling station demonstration project and related plans.

Both Poland and Taiwan acknowledged that this meeting has laid a solid foundation for future exchange and cooperation. Regardless of hydrogen energy policies, technologies, or applications, Taiwan and Poland have different application needs and scenarios that can serve as references for each other; moreover, both sides concur on the significant carbon reduction advantages of hydrogen energy in transportation, industry, and power generation. Looking forward, both parties will focus on identifying pivotal areas for ongoing exchange, so to contribute to achieving  net-zero carbon emission target.
