Naftogaz CEO: Germany eyes Ukrainian green hydrogen

Kiev, July 19 - Neftegaz.RU. Germany is interested in importing green hydrogen from Ukraine, the Head of Ukrainian national gas company Yuriy Vitrenko told local TV on July 17.
The matter was discussed during talks this month between Ukraine and Germany in Berlin

Vitrenko said:
  • In Ukraine there are really huge opportunities for the development of renewable energy including sun, wind and biomass
  • Therefore, they want us to produce renewable energy, which in the form of green hydrogen, produced from green energy, would be transported to Germany, where it would be consumed as energy
Pilot projects were discussed with specific German companies, he noted.
A series of meetings will be held between the 2 sides on how to establish a supply chain for the hydrogen.

Ukraine has significantly expanded its renewables capacity in recent years, with large thanks to support from EU financiers and policy advisors that enabled it to bring in more investment.

The country had 7,331 MW of solar capacity in operation at the end of last year, up from a mere 188 MW in 2011.
Its wind capacity has meanwhile grown to 1,402 MW from 146 MW in 2011.
