RWE and innogy explore green hydrogen production in the Netherlands - Energy Live News
RWE and innogy have joined forces to explore the large-scale production of green hydrogen in the Netherlands. Westereems consists of 52 turbines and is currently one of the largest onshore wind farms in the Netherlands. Hans Bünting, COO Renewables of innogy said: “With the current Dutch offshore wind ambitions, conversion of large volumes of surplus wind power into a storable commodity like green hydrogen can be a cost effective solution for society, large energy consumers and other industrial users of hydrogen. The 1.6GW coal-fired power station also produces demineralised water that can be used for the conversion and in addition, the companies say electricity from biomass can also contribute to the production of green hydrogen when there is no wind power.
