Hydrogen Strategy in Germany: A Look Around the Country
As Germany commits to a hydrogen future, HIL provides the long term policy released by the government.
In the ministerial foreword, The report explained:
“The energy transition – which represents the efforts undertaken and results achieved on renewable energy expansion and energy efficiency – is our basis for a clean, secure and affordable energy supply, which is essential for all our lives.”
“By adopting the 2030 Climate Action Plan, the Federal Government has paved the way for meeting its climate targets for 2030. Its long term goal is to achieve carbon neutrality in line with the targets agreed under the Paris Agreement, which
seeks to keep global warming well below 2 degrees and if possible below 1.5 degrees.”
“In addition, Germany has committed itself, together with the other European Member States, to achieving greenhouse gas (GHG) neutrality by 2050. Apart from phasing out coal-fired power, for which Germany has already taken the relevant decisions, this means preventing emissions that are particularly hard to reduce such as process-related GHG emissions from the industrial sector.”
