We are therefore committed to the global supply or importing of green hydrogen from countries such as Chile, Oman, Namibia, Egypt or Brazil. There is a surplus of green-generated energy there. Their global spread of these regions ensures that Belgium and Europe are less dependent on a small number of countries for their energy supplies. We expect the first imports of hydrogen in 2026.
To this end, we are joining forces with Deme, Engie, Exmar, Fluxys, and WaterstofNet in the hydrogen import coalition. This focuses on concrete projects that shape the production, transport and storage of hydrogen.
