Northern Germany is shaping up to become a hotspot for green hydrogen. The coastal region’s federal states of Bremen, Hamburg, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Niedersachsen and Schleswig-Holstein have joined forces to form the green hydrogen initiative HY-5. The aim is to promote the settlement of new companies on an international scale and to support local companies, opening up ample opportunities in the industry.
The region offers a variety of unique locational advantages, including the highest generation capacities for wind power in Europe, underground formations for hydrogen storage as well as highly efficient seaports. Green hydrogen moreover is increasingly in demand from innovative industrial companies based in the region.

The Energy of the Future
What are the challenges in producing green hydrogen and where is the industry headed? Learn about the opportunities green hydrogen offers and how the Northern German states plan to seize them.
Decarbonization and Sector Coupling
Green hydrogen can play an integral role in the decarbonization of energy-intensive industries such as the metalworking sector and help increase sustainable sector coupling.
The Fuels of the Future
Transportation and traffic are regarded as one of the main sources of emissions. An estimated 95% of it must be converted to alternative drives. Green hydrogen can make a vital contribution towards achieving that goal.
Maritime Industry and Infrastructure: The Supply Chain of the Future
Northern Germany offers ideal conditions for storage and distribution. How can the maritime industry leverage the benefits of green hydrogen? How can existing value chains and infrastructures be used to support a green hydrogen economy?
