During talks with Zorana Mihajlović, Serbia’s minister for mining and energy, and Nenad Popović, the minister without portfolio for innovation, Technology and Industry Minister László Palkovics discussed using hydrogen as a source of energy and opportunities for energy cooperation between Hungary and Serbia.
According to MTI, Palkovics said he had discussed energy cooperation with Mihajlović, and concluded that both countries had to rely on renewable energies of their own rather than imports. He said solar, wind, and geothermic energies were a crucial part of both countries’ energy strategies. Palkovics and Mihajlović also signed a memorandum of understanding concerning an exchange of experience in hydrogen storage. Palkovics noted that Hungary had adopted a hydrogen strategy two years ago, while Serbia had just completed a similar document. He said the two countries’ close proximity and their similarities offered opportunities for not only an exchange but physical cooperation in projects concerning hydrogen storage too. At the talks, the Hungarian minister proposed to set up a joint team of scientists to focus on robotics, energy storage, and applications of nuclear energy in future.
