Everfuel and Hy24 JV notified of increased Danish Power-to-X tender award
Everfuel and Hy24 JV notified of increased Danish Power-to-X tender award.
Everfuel Hy24 A/S is pleased to announce that the Joint Venture, as the marginal winner of the Danish Power-to-X tender for green hydrogen production and supply, has been notified of an increase to the support amount offered by Danish Authorities. The increased offer has a value of DKK 211 million (€28,3 million).
The increase comes after another tender participant was unable to meet the tender contract requirements.
The Danish Power-to-X tender’s built-in subsidy is provided as support for operating expenses and is recognised per kilogram of green hydrogen produced. The subsidy will run for ten years and is dependent on the operational performance of the project. The subsidy structure supplements the JV’s strategy to develop hydrogen production capacity. The offer is conditional of Everfuel and Hy24 accepting the contractual conditions and the final agreement with the Danish Energy Authorities. The JV will provide further information if it decides to accept the support offer.
Jacob Krogsgaard, founder and CEO of Everfuel, said:
The PtX tender is a confirmation of the Danish government’s commitment to developing the national hydrogen production and export potential.
“The Everfuel Hy24 JV is well positioned to pursue this opportunity as part of our joint strategy of making green hydrogen commercially available in key European markets,”

The world’s largest clean hydrogen infrastructure fund results from the initiative of Air Liquide, TotalEnergies and VINCI Concessions, combined with the one of Plug Power, Chart Industries and Baker Hughes, which were sharing a common objective to accelerate the development of the hydrogen sector with the launch of the “Clean H2 Infra Fund”. The Clean H2 Infra Fund is managed by Hy24, a 50/50 joint venture between Ardian, a world leading private investment house, and FiveT Hydrogen, a clean hydrogen investment platform which enabled the gathering of the two initiatives. The fund has also attracted additional anchor industrial partners such as LOTTE Chemical, Airbus, and Snam, Enagás, GRTgaz (together as one Anchor partner) and anchor financial investors such as AXA, Crédit Agricole Assurances, CCR, Allianz, CDPQ, JBIC as well as other investors: Border to Coast Pensions Partnership, the CMA CGM Group, ERAFP, Nuveen, Ballard, Schaeffler, Société Générale Assurances, Groupe ADP, EDF, Norinchukin, Caisse des dépôts, DBJ, Itochu, Groupama and BBVA. The fund is now up and running with Euro 2 billion of allocations. Hy24 is an alternative investment fund manager regulated by the Autorité des marchés financiers. With strong industrial and financial expertise at its core, Hy24 will have a unique capacity to accelerate the scaling up of hydrogen solutions along the whole value chain: production, conversion, storage and supply and usage. Hy24 will support large early stage and strategic projects into becoming essential energy infrastructures.
