The German federal ministry of economy and energy unveiled Germany's national hydrogen strategy, calling for 5 GW of new green hydrogen capacity (hydrogen produced from wind- or solar-powered electrolysis) and dedicating $8 billion toward the development of that capacity. The hydrogen strategy brief recognizes Germany's limited renewable potential to produce green hydrogen, so it has also dedicated a further $2 billion toward international collaboration projects. Notably, the hydrogen strategy identifies an 85 TWh shortfall between green hydrogen supply and economywide hydrogen demand in 2030.
