Working on green hydrogen in The Netherlands

About GroenvermogenNL

The Netherlands and the rest of the world are facing an immense climate challenge. Our fossil-based society and industry must be transformed. The Netherlands is doing this with green hydrogen as a driving force for that transition. GroenvermogenNL is therefore the investment program for green energy for the Dutch economy. This will enable the Netherlands to build up a new industry and an attractive business climate. To make this transition possible, well-trained people and a strong structure of knowledge sharing are necessary.

That is what GroenvermogenNL does: upscaling & innovating, converting & rebuilding, retraining & training.

The GroenvermogenNL growth fund program will receive an additional 500 million euros to accelerate the realization of a green hydrogen ecosystem in the Netherlands. Jeroen Dijsselbloem, chairman of the National Growth Fund, announced this on 14 April. With this, GroenvermogenNL accelerates the production and use of green hydrogen and related technology in various industrial chains, such as chemistry, kerosene, steel or fertilizer. Besides the fact that this is good for the climate and earning capacity, GroenvermogenNL also strengthens the opportunities for the Dutch manufacturing industry in the field of green hydrogen.
