North Rhine-Westphalia hydrogen roadmap presented by Minister Pinkwart

A new hydrogen roadmap for German state of North Rhine-Westphalia has been released to help accelerate the development of a future hydrogen economy.

Presented this week (9th Nov), the roadmap outlines the state’s goals to have its first large-scale systems in operation, the first 100 kilometres of a hydrogen pipeline network installed, and 400 fuel cell trucks are on the road by 2025.

How all these goals can be achieved were all outlined by Energy and Climate Protection Minister Prof. Dr. Andreas Pinkwart when he unveiled the plans earlier this week.

Minister Pinkwart, said, “The goal of making industrial processes in North Rhine-Westphalia more or less climate-neutral by 2050 can only be achieved through the use of hydrogen.
