Dutch Climate and Energy minister receives interim report HyDelta
HyDelta, the hydrogen research platform in which Kiwa participates with several other hydrogen pioneers, presented an interim report of the program to Minister Jetten for Climate and Energy on Thursday 6 October 2022 during the Wind Meets Gas symposium in Groningen. The report describes the results of 37 studies into the large-scale application of hydrogen in the transport sector and the distribution of hydrogen gas in existing infrastructure.
The HyDelta research program has now been continued in HyDelta 2, the results of which are expected in mid-2023. It examines in more detail the economic and technical integration of hydrogen gas in the national gas transport and distribution system and its social and environmental aspects. The research attracts interest from the Netherlands and abroad.
The HyDelta consortium was formed in 2020 at the initiative of Gasunie and Netbeheer Nederland. Goal: to accelerate the large-scale application of hydrogen with directly applicable innovations. The HyDelta consortium, which in addition to Kiwa consists of DNV GL, Gasunie, Netbeheer Nederland, New Energy Coalition, TKI Nieuw Gas and TNO, is particularly committed to removing the practical obstacles that hinder innovative hydrogen projects. The results of the program are always published and are publicly available.
