The findings of the work, given in this report, point to a clear need among the stakeholders for access to hydrogen research infrastructure and pilot test facilities, both in terms of increased access to existing infrastructure and for new facilities . Due to limitations in the national demand for testing services and the available funding schemes a national hydrogen test center may not be realizable. However it is foreseen that regional, specialized test centers can be established as a part of a virtual infrastructure network, preferably linked to the major R&D institutions. A national research infrastructure network is a feasible outcome, for better utilization of existing infrastructures and promotion of new collaborations. Due to the limited volume of hydrogen activities in Norway, cooperation across the borders, i.e. towards the Nordic/EU countries is essential and should be promoted and supported by the Research Council of Norway.
