The natural conditions in northern Germany and the north of the Netherlands are ideal for generating renewable energy. Both countries see hydrogen as an essential building block for successfully transforming their energy systems and are therefore taking action to promote the development of a hydrogen economy:
The islands of Ameland and Borkum in the Wadden Sea, which initiated programmes to develop a sustainable island community model several years ago, also see a need for action to promote the generation and use of renewable energy:
Ameland's sustainable island community model
The municipality has set itself the goal of becoming self-sufficient in the areas of energy and water by 2035.
Borkum's sustainable island community model
Borkum has set itself the goal of becoming sustainable, climate-neutral and emissions-free by 2030 (Smart Island).
Both islands see the use of hydrogen as a key element in achieving their sustainability models:
