Norwegian Hydrogen Network exploring European Opportunities

25 September 2020 - Published by Stig Marthinsen

Last week, a meeting took place including two Periscope partners, South Norway European Office and GCE NODE, and companies and entities interested in the emerging hydrogen market.

Three very different case studies were highlighted South Norway European Office: the Orkney Islands, Scotland, where excess electricity generated from renewable energy sources is turned into hydrogen; Hydrogen Valley in the northern Netherlands, the location of Europe’s largest green hydrogen project; and Germany’s hydrogen strategy which aims for global leadership in the sector.

Four current cases from the Agder region in southern Norway were then presented and mapped to spheres of European interest including potential funding streams.

There was intense interest and the next stage is matching existing projects with transnational partners around the North Sae Region.
