The Port of Rotterdam, Europe’s largest port and a major energy hub, has been developing a hydrogen masterplan to become the major import hub for hydrogen supply and identify future sources of green hydrogen for Europe.

Landsvirkjun, an Iceland-based energy company, has announced a feasibility-study into developing a hydrogen production facility at the Ljósifoss Hydropower Station, about 70km outside of Reykjavík. The production will be carbon-free, through the electrolysis of water with renewable power. Most of the world’s hydrogen supply currently produced from natural gas with its respective carbon footprint, but Icelandic green renewable energy may be exported to the European mainland to facilitate the broader continental energy transition.
