“The Netherlands is on Pole Position with our part of the North Sea, existing infrastructure, wind potential and expertise for setting up and developing offshore hydrogen production. It’s crucial to leverage this advantage effectively, efficiently and smart. By making intelligent use of existing assets, infrastructure and expertise of our people, we can pave the way for the realization of the Esbjerg ambitions. This entails a requirement for both renewable electrons and molecules, emphasizing the importance of collaboration between public and private sectors.”
