The market ramp-up of hydrogen opens up many new opportunities — for old and new industrial sites. The demand is enormous and the new value chains will change our world.
The H2Brasil project supports the growth of green hydrogen in Brazil and aims to improve the technical, institutional and legal conditions for its viability. It is part of the German-Brazilian cooperation for sustainable development and is implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH and the Ministry of Mines and Energy and financed by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). Our speaker had the great honor to conduct an information tour on the Brazilian hydrogen market together with Lars Bobzien (Lower Saxony Ministry of Economic Affairs, Labor, Transport and Digitalization), Inga Soellner (NRW.Energy4Climate), Max Christian Pingen (RWE) and Sibyl Scharrer (Erneuerbare Energien Hamburg — EEHH) as Key Opinion Leaders of the Northern German states.
The first part of the super exciting program of our one-week trip took us to Ceará to visit EDP Brasil, Complexo do Pecém, SENAI Ceará and Sistema FIEC. The potential and opportunities are enormous and the drive and motivation of the players is impressive.
Part two of our delegation trip was the Latam Hydrogen Dialogue. It was overwhelming to meet so many innovative companies and have exciting discussions about opportunities and future collaboration. What great opportunities Brazil has for the global hydrogen, ammonia and biogenic CO2 industry. We are proud to be part of the delegation trip and look forward to future collaboration!
A big thank you to Felipe Bittencourt, Isabela Temístocles Gomes and Ana Carolina Castro from the German-Brazilian Chamber of Commerce São Paulo for the great support!
