The Dutch Hydrogen Delta consortium has submitted a plan to MPs Bontenbal, Boucke & Erkens to kickstart the electrolyser manufacturing industry and thus accelerates the hydrogen economy. The plan, De Nederlandse Waterstof Delta, was designed by 12 consortium partners and some € 80Min funding has been applied for from the National Growth Fund for its implementation.The plan ensures that the Netherlands increases its aumetric tonomy and starts making its own plants needed to produce green hydrogen. De Nederlandse Waterstof Deltawill supply 1GW of plants annually from 2026. This allows it to supply half of all the plants the Netherlands needs to meet its interim climate targets by 2030. The plants operate on the basis of a unique Dutch hydrogen battery, the Battolyser. This technology, developed at TU Delft, can store electricity and produce green hydrogen from renewable electricity. The system can produce hydrogen when there is plenty of wind and solar power available and supply electricity to the grid when there is a shortage of electricity due to low wind and solar power.De Nederlandse Waterstof Delta aims to achieve an annual production capacity of 1GW of Battolysers in the Merwe-Vierhaven area M4H by 2026. According to the Port of Rotterdam Authority, the manufacturing industry is the missing link in the Dutch hydrogen economy. Factories making green hydrogen are being built on the Maasvlakte, for example. However, the associated equipment is not currently made in the Netherlands.
