President Von der Leyen praises Northern Netherlands green hydrogen value chain

“Hydrogen Valleys are the perfect example of the hydrogen economy that Europe wants to build,” President of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen stated during the EU Hydrogen Week in December 2021. We are pleased that Von der Leyen mentioned our Hydrogen Valley at the opening speech of the EU Hydrogen Week.

To use the words of the EU president: “The Northern Netherlands. The region has large quantities of renewable energy from its offshore wind turbines. Two electrolysers will use this renewable energy to produce green hydrogen. This hydrogen will then power up industries, it will fuel public transport, it will heat up homes, and be stored underground. By the end of 2025, the Northern Netherlands will host a complete green hydrogen value chain. And this hydrogen valley will create more than 20,000 jobs in the region. It is a project we are proud to support.”

As first European Hydrogen Valley we cannot agree more, we are proud to receive the support of the European Commission for our integrated project that will enhance our economy, jobs, and broad prosperity. We count on the European Commission to stand by us, as we provide to be an example for many more Hydrogen Valleys to follow. Only together we can expedite the green transition!
