Green Hydrogen Production for the Netherlands

German energy company RWE and their daughter innogy are jointly examining the large-scale production of green hydrogen in the Province of Groningen in the Netherlands.

As a first step, the companies are now starting a feasibility study to build an up to 100 MW hydrogen plant on the site of RWE's Eemshaven power station located close to innogy’s Westereems Wind Farm, which will supply the green electricity, a way of using wind energy to produce considerable volumes of green hydrogen.

“RWE and innogy focus on climate friendly technologies. The CO2 reduction targets in transport, heat supply and industry can only be achieved if the sector coupling is promoted and emission-free energy sources are used. We are convinced that green hydrogen will be an important component of a secured and clean energy supply for these sectors. This is why we start this project in line with similar projects in Germany like GET H2 in Lingen,” explains Roger Miesen, Dutch CEO of RWE Generation SE.

In the coming months, RWE and innogy will first work on the feasibility of the hydrogen plant itself, in collaboration with other partners in the chain and with regional and national authorities. Currently, the processes still require research and development. In addition, the regulatory framework has to be adapted since under current regulation the technology is not competitive yet. The first findings will be expected in the autumn.
