From October 14th – 18th 2024, Trade Horizons Limited, on behalf of Germany Trade & Invest (GTAI) and the HY-5 – the green hydrogen initiative set up by the five Northern States of Germany: Bremen, Hamburg, Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Niedersachsen, and Schleswig-Holstein, is organizing a Trade Mission to the above mentioned German States.

Climate protection is key to Germany: the Government is committed to achieve greenhouse gas emissions neutrality by 2050, in this context green hydrogen is set to play a decisive role.

The German energy sector is undergoing structural change and the country aims to become the “world number one” in clean hydrogen energy technology with the government investing €9bn to support the transition.

As a front-runner in renewable energy development, Germany will become the lead market in the energy transition age in the years ahead.

The country actively welcomes international enterprises seeking to participate in the changing energy market landscape.

Germany Trade and Invest (GTAI) has tasked Trade Horizons with the identification and acquisition of a delegation formed by US based businesses, scientific institutions, and networks, operating in the field of Hydrogen and coupling sectors (e.g. on-shore and off-shore wind farming) to take part in a FDI business trip to Germany.

The roadshow is a great opportunity for American businesses to meet all the relevant stakeholders and representatives of the local business ecosystem at once.

The number of participants is capped and the selected applicants will be able to experience first-hand the opportunities presented by the HY-5.
