The Daxing International Hydrogen Energy Demonstration Zone (Daxing Park) in Beijing and the Green Hydrogen Organisation (GH2) have forged an unprecedented alliance to increase the uptake of green hydrogen and global efforts to rapidly phase out fossil fuels in key economic sectors.

The event featured the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) between GH2 and Daxing Park where both parties agreed to work together to enable a rapid acceleration in green hydrogen production and use through championing innovation, establishing a global green hydrogen standard and connecting Chinese and international companies to improve competition and efficiency. 

GH2’s Chair Malcolm Turnbull said, “At this critical moment in the battle to stop global warming, the stakes could not be higher. Chinese and international companies’ collaboration is key to unlocking green hydrogen’s potential, which is essential to removing fossil fuels from industries such as steel, cement, fertilizers, road haulage, shipping, and aviation. China’s role as a renewable energy leader and green hydrogen technology manufacturer is important to growing the international green hydrogen industry.”

Deputy Director, Department of Energy Conservation and Technological Equipment, National Energy Administration, Yafang Liu said, “China has become the world's largest hydrogen and fuel cell commercial vehicles producer, with Chinese enterprises taking the lead in deepening consultation and cooperation on hydrogen. More than 20 Chinese provinces have already issued 170 guidelines on further development of hydrogen energy."

"Construction of the Daxing International Hydrogen Energy Demonstration Zone played a crucial role in that and I hope that Daxing District will seize the opportunities created by the world energy transformation, further strengthen technological exchanges and international cooperation to achieve carbon neutrality.” added Liu. 

Jonas Moberg, GH2’s Chief Executive Officer said, “Without green hydrogen made from renewable energy the world will not be able to decarbonise the industries that we rely on in our modern way of life like steel and cement. No effort to achieve this goal will succeed without China and international partners from the public and private sectors working together to increase supply, stimulate demand and innovate to make green hydrogen the cost-competitive energy source of choice in these hard-to-abate sectors. Today’s event has only served to underscore the importance of the new partnership between GH2 and Daxing Park and I look forward to building on this foundation in the future.”
