Germany and the United Arab Emirates establish new hydrogen task force

Germany aims to be climate neutral by 2045. With its recently announced goal of also achieving climate neutrality by 2050, the UAE is also pursuing a clear sustainability strategy. The Federal Ministry of Economics is convinced that cooperation between countries can help achieve climate goals and further increase ambitions. The UAE had great renewable energy potential and thus excellent conditions for large-scale exports of green hydrogen.

Companies are already working closely together

According to the announcement, German and Emirati companies are now working closely together on several hydrogen projects in the UAE. The first green electrolyser pilot project in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region was inaugurated jointly by Siemens Energy and the Dubai Electricity & Water Authority (DEWA) in Dubai in May of this year. Further projects for green hydrogen and synthetic fuels are currently being planned.

The work of the task force within the scope of the German-Emirati energy partnership is supported by the German-Emirati Chamber of Commerce and Industry (AHK) in Abu Dhabi and Guidehouse. The new hydrogen task force is steered by a high-level steering group. The focus is on the implementation of specific projects and the achievement of a common understanding of the necessary framework conditions for setting up and scaling up green hydrogen production.
