What are the possibilities for Denmark and the Netherlands to bridge and cooperate in the fields of green gasses like biogas and hydrogen?
That was the fundamental question in 2021, during a Royal Business Digital Conference between Dutch and Danish governmental leadership and business leaders, guided by Royal attendance.
It was a positive outcome with various synergies. In the field of biogas, The Danish Embassy in the Netherlands, Groen Gas Nederland and Food & Bio Cluster Denmark (part of Biogas Go Global) took further steps resulting in this document.
The document is written as concise high-level input for an executive round table event in April 2022, to discuss the proposed opportunities for cooperation. In this event business leaders and strategic stakeholders discussed and agree where and how to move forward.
Both countries have strong positions and can create various synergies that can pave the way for European Climate ambitions in the field of biomethane. This document is meant as a summary, therefore it contains no summary itself. The proposed opportunities for cooperation are listed and briefly described in Chapter 5. Chapter 2 gives a short factsheet of the general energy system of both countries with entries that are deemed relevant for the topic and with a focus on ‘gas’.
Chapter 3 provides a comparison of relevant information about biogas/biomethane, also structured as factsheet. Based on two short case studies, Chapter 4 describes the lessons that the Netherlands can learn from Denmark, and vice versa, considering biomethane. The views and content represented in this report lay with the authors and do not necessarily represent the views of the interviewees or their organizations.
