Dutch policy for industrial decarbonisation needs a further push on low-carbon and green hydrogen to meet climate targets, says the independent energy expert, DNV.
According to a study conducted by DNV on behalf of the Clean Air Task Force, replacing existing grey hydrogen production with low-carbon or green hydrogen alone could meet 60% of the Dutch industrial emissions target, however, acceleration of policy support IS REQUIRED.
Current Dutch policy requires its domestic industries to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 59% by 2030, ahead of reaching climate neutrality by 2050. In pursuit of the goals, the Dutch Government established a Sustainable Energy Transition subsidy scheme (SDE++), working to compensate the additional costs of adopting low-carbon technologies that are already used or close to deployment, such as carbon capture and storage (CCS).
