Dutch industrial decarbonisation policy needs to push low-carbon and green hydrogen, says DNV

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.
