Germany and Saudi Arabia in hydrogen cooperation


GermanyGermany and Saudi Arabia have joined forces to enhance hydrogen development.

The countries will cooperate on the production, processing, use and transport of green hydrogen.

German Federal Government has identified a need for 90 110 TWh of climate-neutral hydrogen by 2030, a large part of which will have to be covered by imports. Saudi Arabia has a good chance in the long term of becoming a major green hydrogen exporter. Through their hydrogen cooperation, Germany and Saudi Arabia seek to implement specific hydrogen projects.

Further to this, a road map is to be established for the mutual sharing of expertise in collaboration with the private sector on the issues of technology, business and regulation. Hydrogen is regarded as a key priority for the realization of the energy transition, particularly in some industrial and transport sectors where it is difficult to cut emissions.
