The Netherlands/Chile – Leading Dutch energy businesses will attend a green H2 trade mission in November that the Netherlands is hosting to look into ways to advance and expand the green hydrogen industry in Chile.
This Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO)-sponsored Green H2 Trade Mission to Chile, which was planned in close collaboration with the Chilean Ministry of Energy and ProChile (charged with promoting Chile abroad), is an excellent chance to forge alliances and develop strategies for the green hydrogen supply chain between Chile and Europe. The agenda includes subjects including accreditation, rules, the influence on the environment, trade, technologies, human capital, and infrastructure development.

The emphasis is on the infrastructure required for hydrogen to secure the green hydrogen supply chain, formulating requirements for establishing an import-export corridor between Chile and Europe, the social and economic impact, as well as exploring opportunities for practical applications for the local energy transition. This also covers geographical considerations. Given Chile’s goal of being one of the biggest and probably most competitive producers of renewable energy worldwide by 2030, interest in this H2 mission is considerable.
Dutch business representatives, including those from the ports of Rotterdam and Amsterdam, as well as consultancies, storage, and transportation businesses, will travel to Chile for one week to engage with key players in the Chilean green hydrogen ecosystem. Plans include for visits to the nation’s major hydrogen centers as well as meetings with businesses and municipal authorities to talk about prospects and difficulties for green hydrogen production, export, and local energy transition.
