Key Ideas
  • German government, led by Chancellor Scholz, is actively creating regulatory frameworks and funding schemes to accelerate hydrogen deployment, emphasizing the need for private sector engagement.
  • Hydrogen Council Co-Chair, Sanjiv Lamba, and CEO of Linde, highlights the crucial role of strong leadership in driving hydrogen adoption for climate, economy, and society benefits.

Germany is positioning itself as a leader in the hydrogen economy by actively engaging in policy development and financial support to rapidly scale up hydrogen deployment. Chancellor Olaf Scholz underlines the importance of immediate action and strong private sector involvement for success. The commitment from leaders like Sanjiv Lamba reinforces the drive to accelerate hydrogen utilization for environmental, economic, and societal advantages. Recent high-level meetings with global executives demonstrate a unified front in prioritizing hydrogen advancement and overcoming investment barriers. The Hydrogen Council's annual meeting in Berlin served as a platform for reviewing project pipelines, discussing investment challenges, and assessing the impacts of governmental interventions in key markets. Ivana Jemelkova's acknowledgment of the Council's role in fostering crucial discussions emphasizes the readiness of industry and policy leaders to collaborate in propelling hydrogen initiatives and facilitating the energy transition towards sustainability.

Our vision is to be the world's leading online platform for advancing the use of hydrogen as a critical piece needed to deliver net-zero initiatives and the promise of a clean H2 energy future.
