And an interview with Wopke Hoekstra, European Commissioner for Climate Action and former Dutch cabinet minister. Starts on page 12 and its very thorough not only in terms of hydrogen perspectives at the European Union, but also geopolitics.


We also quote Philip Christiani, Partner at Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners, who said in his interview “I don’t think the financial sector is getting to grips with hydrogen: there are probably still more unanswered questions than answers. It will still take time for the industry to mature, maybe 10 years before we have a consistent business model. But that’s not any different from the development of offshore wind or other renewable technologies.”


And from the Manifesto (picture below) "Hydrogen can bring strong industrial development globally ... We are not alone on this path. The United States, China, the Arabian Peninsula, India, Brazil, Australia, Namibia and many more countries all strive to be champions of decarbonisation."
