A memorandum of agreement between EIH2, the Port of Cork, and the Port of Amsterdam pave the ground for the establishment of a supply chain for green hydrogen between Ireland and Europe via the Port of Amsterdam.
The MoU highlights both the European ambition to come together as the first net zero continent and the “high degree of engagement” between Ireland and the Netherlands.
The signing of the MoU is a part of an offshore wind mission that the Netherlands Embassy in Ireland is holding in Cork from September 11–14.
The mission’s goal is to improve national-level and business-to-business cooperation on the energy transition between Ireland and The Netherlands.
Key players from the Irish and Dutch wind industries are represented at the event, including the supply chain, developers, researchers, utilities, policy authors, and policy influencers.
Both the Dutch Minister for Climate and Energy Policy, Rob Jetten, and the Irish Minister of State for Public Procurement, eGovernment, and Circular Economy, Ossian Smyth, were present at the MoU’s signing ceremony as recognized witnesses to the agreement.
