Government strategy on hydrogen

legislation type Executive
Passed in 2020
This document aims at showing the government's strategic focus on hydrogen as a key enabler of job creation, air quality improvement, transformation of the energy system and transition to low-carbon development. A corresponding policy agenda is set out around four pillars: legislation and regulation, cost reduction and scaling up green hydrogen, sustainability of final consumption, and supporting and flanking policy.

However, the European Commission notified the Dutch government that specific subsidies dealing with green hydrogen were not compatible with the union's rules.
