We, the Fraunhofer Society and GHD, one of the world’s leading professional services companies have been commissioned by the Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure (MOEI) to develop the UAE’s National Hydrogen Strategy 2030. The Emirati-German Energy Partnership is supporting the GHD-Fraunhofer collaboration.
In March 2022, a delegation from the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft and the MOEI signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) in the presence of the German Federal Minister of Economic Affairs and Climate Action, Robert Habeck. With the MoU, both sides agreed to cooperate on innovative research projects, including low-carbon hydrogen technologies.
Fraunhofer’s participation in the UAE’s National Hydrogen Strategy is a massive step toward enabling research cooperation and the exchange of knowledge and technology between the UAE and Germany.
Prof. Dr. Christopher Hebling and Prof. Dr. Mario Ragwitz, spokespersons for the Fraunhofer Strategic Research Field Hydrogen Technologies, emphasised:
The UAE hydrogen strategy focuses on decarbonising the nation’s domestic energy system, including its industry, cooling, and mobility sectors.
“It also supports the UAE’s ambition to become an exporter of low-carbon hydrogen. We are pleased to be part of this important phase of the UAE’s energy transformation.”
In CINES we address the cooperation potentials between Europe and the MENA region regarding green hydrogen.
