Right now, green hydrogen only plays a small role in the energy system. To develop the hydrogen economy, completely new value chains will need to be built. The challenge is enormous in terms of production, storage and transport, as well as investments and switching end users over to hydrogen. Existing industries will have to transform their production processes and business models.
We only have thirty years left, which is why the large-scale development of hydrogen production must start now. Accelerating and adopting a large-scale approach helps us cut costs and seize economic opportunities.
The development of a green hydrogen market requires synchronised development of all parts of the value chain, guided and facilitated by targeted government policy. Close cooperation between customers, developers, suppliers and government bodies is essential. The coordinated accelerated development of the hydrogen economy to gigawatt scale by implementing a specific wind-for-hydrogen approach in line with the Dutch Climate Agreement is what NortH2 is all about.
