Germany and Denmark will cooperate on the construction of a land-based pipeline that will enable the supply of green hydrogen from the Scandinavian country to Europe's largest economy in 2028.
The energy ministers of the two countries Lars Aagaard and Robert Habeck signed a declaration of intent on Friday in Copenhagen building on the green hydrogen partnership that was inked last May.

As part of the efforts to advance the green hydrogen rollout, the two countries will provide support to potential hydrogen infrastructure operators and users to design and implement their projects; assist potential hydrogen transmission operators when applying for designation as Projects of Common Interest for the Connecting Europe Facility; get involved in discussions on the distribution of generated renewable energy target amounts.
Denmark aims to build an electrolysis capacity of 4 GW - 6 GW by the end of this decade which will enable the country to export the clean fuel to places such as Germany where demand is increasing.
The green hydrogen partnership with Denmark is one of several international alliances that Germany has agreed over the last year in an effort to secure enough imports of green hydrogen to meet domestic demand. The partner countries include Egypt, Norway, the UAE, Canada, Australia.
