The President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, announced Green Energy Park project
The President of the European Commission, Ursula von der Leyen, announced Green Energy Park project as one of the biggest hydrogen projects in the world in her keynote speech held at the European Hydrogen Week 2023 on 20th of November, 2023:
"<...> And here at the Hydrogen Week, new and exciting initiatives will see the light and will be discussed. With Kazakhstan, Australia and Oman. And together with President Lula of Brazil, we are announcing the European Union's support to build one of the biggest hydrogen projects in the world, in the Brazilian State of Piaui. It is part of a two billion euro Global Gateway investment in the hydrogen value chain in Brazil.
This new Green Energy Park will be a 10 GW production facility for clean hydrogen and ammonia, which will then be shipped to the island of Krk in Croatia. From there, hydrogen will travel to serve industrial off-takers in South-East Europe. And in parallel, this project will create local jobs and value chains in Brazil.
All of this shows, more than ever, that Europe is not only a clean hydrogen pioneer, but also a partner – to build a worldwide hydrogen market. With these public investments we are helping attract and mobilize massive private capital. <...>"
