About GroenvermogenNL

What we do

GroenvermogenNL’s aim is to accelerate a fully operational market for the industrial use of green hydrogen. 

GroenvermogenNL is a temporary organisation that has emerged from the programming of three top sectors (HTSM (High Tech Systems and Materials), Chemistry and Energy). The aim is to accelerate the market for green hydrogen (and green chemistry). With this in mind, GroenvermogenNL concentrates primarily on connecting and strengthening existing initiatives in relation to R&D, pilots, demonstrations and human capital.

Our ambitions:

  • Accelerate  – 5 projects, 2024
  • Scale-up – >500 MW
  • Reduce costs – 2-2.5 €/kg
  • Future proof key industries – 4 key industries
  • Innovative ecosystem – >50 companies

GroenvermogenNL explicitly seeks cooperation with the ECCM committee, the Electrolyser Makers Platform, relevant working groups under the National Hydrogen Programme (including SHIPNL), regional industry clusters working on hydrogen, bodies such as ISPT, TNO and NextGen High Tech and others who share our ambitions.

GroenvermogenNL is of relevance to these cooperating partners because, with our resources, we are in the position to initiate and support the right approaches. In addition, we can also assist the network of cooperating parties with new insights and models to help strengthen coherence throughout the chain, from production to (industrial) use of green hydrogen. Green chemistry is based on low-CO2 produced hydrogen.

The value chain 

GroenvermogenNL’s ambitions require a keen focus on where we are able to make a difference. To do this, it is important to have a clear idea of the value chain of (industrial) use of hydrogen and within that, to plot out the accents that help to bring cohesion between different activities. In doing this, we are guided in part by the initiatives and ambitions of third parties and in part by our own analyses of the areas where we can best contribute. As the market conditions relating to green hydrogen are evolving at a rapid pace, it is important to adaptively adjust the path that we follow so that maximum return can be gained from our activities, without losing focus on our ambitions. Returns from GroenvermogenNL manifest as concrete support for the accomplishment of projects and different products.


Network formation

GroenvermogenNL’s aim is to cooperate with a number of initiatives and organisations that contribute to improving the sustainability of the Netherlands and to the role of green hydrogen in particular. GroenvermogenNL’s activities are both for and by those organisations. The National Hydrogen Programme with the working groups arranged under it, and the view to Government ambitions (EU, national, regional), are important to us. Collaboration with NextGen High Tech and the Electrolyser Makers Platform helps us to strengthen the link with the manufacturing industry in the Netherlands. Regional clusters assist with concrete projects and the ambitions of businesses in their regions. Organisations, such as top sectors, ISPT, VoltaChem and TNO, share knowledge and contribute programmes on/to which GroenvermogenNL can build or contribute.

GroenvermogenNL wishes to make relevant contributions to this kind of network by deploying resources, exchanging knowledge and connecting parties with one another, as well as by clarifying the system function of hydrogen within the wider transition.
