Germany/The Netherlands – The governments of Germany and the Netherlands have agreed to work together more closely in the future to integrate their respective hydrogen pipeline networks.
The countries intend to collaborate on all projects aiming at developing cross-border hydrogen corridors, including the Delta Rhine Corridor, and will outline the actions required to achieve ambitious execution. By 2027, the first two interconnections could be completed.
The governments held a joint session solely dedicated to hydrogen infrastructure, with a follow-up meeting scheduled for the end of 2023.
