By creating Hydrogen Diplomacy Offices, the project promotes political dialogue on energy with countries exporting fossil fuels.
The dialogue is based on four core issues:
Firstly, the project supports countries exchanging ideas on hydrogen and power-to-X technologies. Secondly, the project provides advice on the risks and opportunities of hydrogen for the countries’ export industry. In addition, the German Federal Foreign Office and German embassies will advise the countries in question regarding topics and communications on foreign policy matters. Finally, it promotes cooperation with the private sector in the exporting countries Nigeria and Angola.
This raises awareness of the rising demand for green hydrogen among decision makers.
The dialogue formats initiate intergovernmental exchange and focus on decarbonisation goals and challenges regarding increasing demand for carbon-neutral products.
In addition, the project is carrying out studies on long-term sources of income and labour market development in the context of energy transition.
