General – Hydrogen
The UAE Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure and the Dutch Ministry for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on hydrogen energy.
The MoU was signed by Suhail bin Mohammed Al Mazrouei, Minister of Energy and Infrastructure, and the Dutch Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation, Liesje Schreinemacher, at the Netherlands Pavilion at Expo 2020 Dubai.
As part of their Joint Economic Committee, the UAE and the Netherlands have been in structured dialogue to identify common interests and create a partnership for decarbonisation of the energy sector and increasing the use of clean hydrogen.
The ministers noted the importance of clean hydrogen, in particular green hydrogen from renewable sources to contribute to the countries’ emission reduction policy. They recognised the benefits of working together in setting up export-import corridors for clean hydrogen between the UAE and the Netherlands as a gateway to Europe.
