“To make the energy transition a reality, companies need to be innovative and bold, and to work together across different sectors,” says Arthur van Schayk, Managing Director of Remeha Benelux. “Remeha is firmly committed to MissieH2 and its mission of accelerating the hydrogen economy in the Netherlands.”
Highly promising as a clean, safe and versatile fuel for the future, hydrogen plays a key role in helping Europe transition to climate neutrality. With its ‘Green Deal’, the European Commission has set out the path towards a climate-neutral economy by 2050. BDR Thermea Group is participating in the ambitious EU plans, supporting the European Clean Hydrogen Alliance that aims to develop a clean and globally competitive hydrogen industry in Europe.
BDR Thermea is collaborating with partners in the energy sector – utilities, grid operators, building-owners and end-users – on a range of pilots, to learn more about the widescale production, distribution and practical application of hydrogen in the energy mix.
In 2019, we introduced the world’s first 100% hydrogen boiler in a pilot project in Rozenburg, the Netherlands. Later that year, we became the first company in the Netherlands to receive certification for the use of hydrogen admixture in domestic boilers.
In late 2020, our pioneering work on hydrogen took an important step forward with the go-live of a pilot in the Dutch town of Uithoorn. The existing natural gas network in a test community there has been adapted to carry hydrogen via our 100% hydrogen boiler.
