The Netherlands is currently exploring the possibility of creating a local trading platform for hydrogen which will include guarantees of origin and a hydrogen price index. Today, hydrogen is typically produced and consumed on-site – the lack of infrastructure and mechanisms for hydrogen transport and trading continues to be a key barrier to its widespread adoption. The creation of such a platform is still a long-term endeavor, but it will provide a huge boost to the Dutch hydrogen economy, as it would further incentivize construction of a hydrogen infrastructure as well as optimize hydrogen production costs – clients should closely monitor this development.
