CIP Foundation has published a comprehensive roadmap for an integrated hydrogen infrastructure, connecting Denmark to key markets in Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands. COWI and Arkitema assisted with in-depth analysis and produced a video showcasing the most important findings of the new report.
Denmark is in a unique position to assist Northern Europe, especially, in reducing CO2 emissions from heavy industry, transportation, and agriculture in the coming decades. The production of green hydrogen and the so-called Power-to-X fuels will be crucial and have the potential to reduce global CO2 emissions by 20 per cent by 2050.
And it could become the next major export adventure for Denmark, on par with the Danish wind turbine industry, if we think long-term and internationally in the development of the market.
These are the key findings in a new report from the CIP Foundation, in which COWI has provided technical analysis and future demand scenarios.
The report presents a comprehensive plan for an integrated hydrogen infrastructure in Denmark with international connections to key markets in Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands. According to the report's findings, this infrastructure is crucial to maintain Denmark's green leadership position and capture a vital market for the green transition.
»Hydrogen can become a cornerstone of the green transition – not only in Denmark but for Europe – and Denmark can take the lead in this new market. CIP Foundation has now presented a very exciting rollout plan for a new green hydrogen infrastructure in Denmark and international connections to Germany, the Netherlands, and Belgium on land and in the North Sea. We at COWI and Arkitema are pleased to have been able to contribute to this important work and project for the CIP Foundation,« says Jan Behrendt Ibsø, Group Senior Market Director in COWI.
