IRENA, thyssenKrupp sign green hydrogen solutions acceleration agreement

GRA and IRENA Join Forces to Accelerate Renewable deployment

The International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) has signed a partnership agreement with thyssenKrupp aimed at advancing the green transformation in pursuit of global development and Paris Agreement goals.

Under the agreement, both organisations will work together and share knowledge on the large-scale production and supply of green hydrogen and other green energy carriers and their transport – along the entire hydrogen value chain in demand, supply, and infrastructure.

The agreement was signed by Francesco La Camera, IRENA’s General-Director, and Martina Merz, Chief Executive Officer of thyssenKrupp in a virtual ceremony.

Francesco La Camera said: “Renewables-based hydrogen is a critical pillar to decarbonise our economies, meet climate goals, and secure energy supplies.

“Today’s agreement between IRENA and thyssenkrupp will significantly increase knowledge exchange and enable technological solutions to accelerate the production, delivery, and use of green hydrogen.”

The scope of the collaboration, according to the partners, includes identifying green hydrogen applications based on different industries and potential domestic hydrogen demand and developing the business case for green hydrogen as a major contributor to deep decarbonisation.

ThyssenKrupp is an international group of companies comprising largely independent industrial and technology businesses. Its business activities have been bundled into six segments: Materials Services, Industrial Components, Automotive Technology, Steel Europe, Marine Systems, and Multi Tracks.
