The HyUnder consortium comprises 12 leading organizations from 6 different European countries (Germany, Spain, France, Romania, the Netherlands and the UK), including large companies, small medium enterprises and research institutes. This variety ensures that all the fundamental competencies are available to carry out the project, including: geology of underground formations suitable for gas storage and below ground technology, underground storage engineering along with above ground process technology. Other important competencies with a specific focus on hydrogen are also included, such as electrolysis, hydrogen use for wind energy load balancing, hydrogen rich gas mixtures and hydrogen use in transport.

Supporting Partners will be asked to play an active role in the development of the communication and the dissemination strategy of the project as well. Thanks to their contribution greater knowledge spreadingwill be allowed throughout the study roll-out inside their own organizations and in their existing external communication networks.
