Approval Obtained for Green Hydrogen Production Facility in Denmark
H2 Energy Europe has been granted environmental approval for its large-scale green hydrogen production facility in Esbjerg, Denmark. How will this help to drive green hydrogen production in the country?
The approval issued for the facility, which will have a 1 GW electrolysis capacity, is said to be a significant milestone, bringing the project closer to a final investment decision.
H2 Energy Europe has also explained that the planned facility could support the decarbonisation of heavy industries and road transportation while serving as chemical feedstock for the production of sustainable e-fuels like methanol and ammonia.
In addition to creating approximately 60 permanent jobs and up to 700 jobs during the construction phase, the facility will also produce carbon-neutral surplus heat, which has the potential to supply the majority of households in the region with district heating.
