CCUS & H2 Delegation to Germany (NRW)

Carbon, Capture, Utilization, and Storage (CCUS) and Hydrogen is gaining growing attention in Germany. With its large share of big CO2 capture sources and a growing demand for emission reductions and need for green hydrogen, Germany is harbouring great potential for CO2 capture technologies, transport, and storage, as well as importer of Danish green hydrogen.

Therefore, Danish Industry, Embassy in Berlin and Danish Energy Export are organising a two-part event focusing on CCUS and green transition cooperation between Germany and Denmark.

Learn more about the first event here.

This second event will take place in Germany’s industrial heartland, North-Rhine Westphalia (NRW) that is responsible for much of Germany’s value creation and a lot of its CO2. To maintain its industrial core and simultaneously become green NRW is focusing on two technologies: CCUS and green hydrogen.

For both technologies, Germany is relying on external partners. Concerning CCUS, Germany plans to export CO2 due to a complicated internal debate about domestic storage. Regarding hydrogen, the sheer amount of German demand makes imports a necessity. Overall, this aligns well with Danish plans to import CO2 and export hydrogen.

Furthermore, the ramp-up phase of both technologies will focus on industrial centres such as NRW making it an ideal destination for promoting Danish-German cooperation.

Why join:

  • Gain knowledge on the German policies on CCUS and green hydrogen.
  • Position your company as leading in the future development of CCUS and green hydrogen.
  • Get the possibility to build partnerships with key public and private stakeholders within the German CCUS and H2 economy.
