Scholz interested in Canadian green hydrogen


German Economics Minister Robert Habeck will accompany Chancellor Olaf Scholz on his planned trip to Canada starting August 21, the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Protection confirmed to Handelsblatt.

The German government wants to deepen its energy partnership with Canada in order to become less dependent on Russian gas supplies.

According to several sources, the trip by the chancellor and vice chancellor will focus primarily on the topic of green hydrogen and possible energy and science ties. Green hydrogen is produced using renewable energies such as wind power.

Green hydrogen was also the topic in May of this year, when Habeck met with Canadian Minister of Business and Innovation Fran├žois-Philippe Champagne.

At the time, Habeck explained that Canada offered many opportunities, especially when it came to combining the supply of liquefied natural gas (LNG) with a switch to emission-free hydrogen in the long term.
