Dutch and German grid operators and market players want to accelerate the creation of a cross-border hydrogen infrastructure to connect Dutch hydrogen production and import with German industry. Several parties, including ENGIE, signed agreements on developing a hydrogen corridor between the Netherlands and Germany for this purpose in Duisburg in the presence of King Willem-Alexander.
The cross-border hydrogen infrastructure between the Netherlands and Germany is crucial for making Northwest European industry more sustainable. For the Netherlands, this offers strategic opportunities to develop as a hydrogen energy hub to Germany. Having transport and storage infrastructure available in the process could form the basis for a future European hydrogen market.
