Meet our Partners: H2-Region Emsland

2 minutes

Our current partner is responsible for implementing an H2 platform that brings together stakeholders, supply and demand, projects and technologies. 

About H2-Region Emsland

The H2-Region Emsland is the association of hydrogen players in the Emsland region. It is the point of contact for topics relating to hydrogen technology and an open dialogue platform for regional companies. Local industrial companies, numerous small and medium-sized enterprises in the region, research institutions, initiatives and also representatives of the public sector are organised in the network. Participation in the network is open to all regional players and interested parties. The H2-Region Emsland is supported by the district of Emsland and the town of Lingen.

Our role in the project

We are responsible for the management of the first work package (WP1), which deals with the development of a transnational NSR platform. The aim is to create a platform-marketplace linking H2 relevant stakeholders. We are also involved in the fourth work package (WP4) and support the project 'Hydrogen driven freight train in the cross-border region DE/NL'. As a border region, we are hoping for closer links with other NSR partners, new impetus, knowledge transfer and the development of interregional value chains. We see the platform as a means of achieving this.

Our vision for the hydrogen economy of the future

We can see that the ramp-up of an industrial hydrogen economy is imminent. If this industrial part is supplemented by decentralised projects and regional value chains, not only SMEs but the entire energy system will benefit. Hydrogen can make a massive contribution to an emission-free world by 2045. The EU can and must strive for a leading technological role. The NSR region plays a central part in this.
