Hydrogen Tech in Aalborg
Hydrogen represents a huge potential in the green transition and in North Denmark the Power-to-x movement has matured over the last 15 years - making the region a front-runner which continues to attract worldwide attention.
Power-to-X has been named an obvious approach in the green transition as it offers a solution to previous energy challenges such as utilization and storage and the fact that it incorporates CO2 usage can be a game changer in relation to climate neutrality.
With the knowledge, research, projects and companies already operating in the field of Hydrogen and power-to-x technologies, Aalborg and North Denmark has become an attractive location for innovative companies looking to tap into the green movement and the collaboration platform.
