Finland as a frontrunner in green hydrogen
Finland is a leader in supporting the energy transition and renewable energy. The national objective is to become carbon neutral by 2035 and to create the first welfare society in the world to entirely renounce fossil fuels. As a central raw material, energy carrier and storage, hydrogen is a key to successfully establishing a renewables-based economy.
To be on the front foot in the hydrogen market and simultaneously achieve the ambitious carbon neutrality and sustainable growth targets, Finnish public and private sector is actively seeking to launch a viable hydrogen-based energy system. The aim is to spearhead sustainable hydrogen development on a European and global level.
With its innovative and dynamic business environment, cutting-edge research and know-how, and a stable political and economic landscape, Finland is well-placed to achieve this goal. The emerging green hydrogen industry is strongly facilitated by active across-the-board collaboration of stakeholders and by opportunities arising from the rapid development of wind power onshore and increasingly also offshore.
