German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said it on August 24, 2022.
Olaf Scholz and his deputy Economic Affairs and Climate Action Minister Robert Habeck are on a three-day visit seeking to sign a hydrogen production deal with Canada.
"Hydrogen is the future: we will create a common market with Canada by 2025. I am pleased with the agreement concluded today. It’s about investing and building supply chains,” Scholz posted about it on the social network.
The Associated Press reported that the first deliveries of hydrogen are expected in three years.
Canada plans to build a zero-emission plant for this purpose, which will use wind energy to produce hydrogen and ammonia for export.
The focus of the negotiations with Germany also was on the supply of liquefied natural gas (LNG) and green hydrogen amid Berlin's attempt to lessen its dependence on Russia as a supplier of gas.
