The Netherlands and Germany are working together on a cross-border green hydrogen chain. The neighboring countries are jointly building capacity for production and import, infrastructure and additional knowledge of green hydrogen. 

This is necessary due to the high demand for green hydrogen from industry in NRW (and in the rest of Germany). All this offers opportunities for Dutch companies and knowledge institutions. North Rhine-Westphalia has a strong manufacturing industry. There is a lot of knowledge about electrolysis and fuel cells. This offers opportunities for the Netherlands as a production, import and transit port. 

Economic mission green hydrogen to Germany (North Rhine-Westphalia) is led by State Secretary for Economic Affairs and Climate, Hans Vijlbrief to focus on various hydrogen projects. The business mission leader is Theo Henrar, chairman of FME. Deputy Director General of Foreign Economic Relations, Yvette van Eechoud, is also travelling.

Date & Location: 14-15 November, Duisburg, Germany
