Green hydrogen production facility gets key environmental approval

In Denmark, H2 Energy Europe announced that it has received environmental approval for its large-scale green hydrogen production facility in Esbjerg, Denmark. This achievement marks a significant milestone for the project, bringing it closer to a Final Investment Decision (FID), the company said. Jesper Frost Rasmussen, the mayor of Esbjerg municipality, states the importance of the environmental approval for the entire green energy sector in Esbjerg and Europe: “The environmental approval granted to the upcoming hydrogen plant by H2 Energy Europe is of immense significance for Esbjerg, positioning it as a leading green business city in Europe. This development sends a decisive message to Christiansborg and other green energy companies, demonstrating that private investors can receive approvals for their projects and are prepared to commence construction of large-scale hydrogen facilities in the city. Such initiatives promise substantial business prospects for Esbjerg Municipality, Denmark, and Europe at large.” The facility, with a 1 GW electrolysis capacity, will contribute to the local economy by creating approximately 60 permanent jobs and up to 700 jobs during the construction phase.
