Dutch energy company Essent and solar developer Solinoor will collaborate on the development of green hydrogen projects in the Netherlands using ground-based and floating solar PV.

The first collaborative project will have 5MW of electrolysis capacity that will deliver green hydrogen locally.

The project will also have colocated battery storage to “guarantee the continuity of the operation” and the companies are exploring possible use of wind energy to keep production of green hydrogen.

Vahid Kharidar, director of Solinoor, said: “We believe that there is always a solution for our industry to move to 100% green energy, even when we have challenges with limited transport capacity on the grid.

“Essent and Solinoor go one step further and offer an integrated energy solution by using and offering different sources of green energy (solar, wind, batteries and hydrogen). Our capabilities in development, design, installation and investment fit in perfectly with Essent’s role as an energy market leader.”

Last March, the Dutch government extended its SDE++ subsidy scheme budget to US$14.3 billion with green hydrogen projects able to government subsidy.

With hydrogen now a central part of many nations’ decarbonisation plans there remains an elephant in the room; how do we produce truly clean green hydrogen in the volumes needed to support this burgeoning Hydrogen ecosystem, at comparable prices to grey or blue Hydrogen? Without a route to green hydrogen at scale, efforts to transition to hydrogen will not contribute to the 2050 target of net zero. With this in mind, the third annual Green Hydrogen Summit will examine every aspect of achieving cost- competitive green hydrogen at scale. The Summit will provide a comprehensive view of the entire green hydrogen ecosystem, including the regulations and incentives countries are deploying, the business models to deploy electrolysis projects, the infrastructure upgrades needed to transport and store hydrogen at scale, and the industrial applications for the hydrogen being produced. Now into its third year, and with an audience made up of government officials, energy suppliers, project developers, debt providers and investors, utilities, gas grids and off-takers the summit will bring together delegates with leading experts to share the latest case studies, inspire action, and make the connections to realise the potential of green hydrogen.
