Draft to be revised by Coordination Center for Climate Issues:
Hamburg’s goal is to reduce emissions 55% by 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality by 2050. The city is committed to cutting 4 million tons of C02 emissions over the next 10 years through various measures. The city is decarbonizing its district heating by banning new oil heating systems in 2022 and requiring solar systems on new buildings by 2023. The city administration will act as a role model, with public buildings constructed and renovated in an exemplary energy-efficient manner.

Hamburg’s Climate Action Plan sets concrete reduction targets across its mobility, industry, commerce and household sectors. Climate protection responsibilities are tasked across the entire administration and coordinated by the Ministry for Environment and Energy. The plan includes a wide range of measures, set as legal requirements, and an investment of nearly 2 billion euros through 2030.

Hydrogen Strategy for North Germany

The Hydrogen Strategy for North Germany is the result of close cooperation of a number of Federal States and of comprehensive and constructive involvement of active players from the areas of business, research and administration. Compared to other regions, North Germany features unparalleled locational advantages for establishing a ‘green’ hydrogen economy.

Hydrogen Strategy for North Germany

North Germany features unparalleled locational advantages for establishing a ‘green’ hydrogen economy, including a great generating capacity for onshore and offshore wind-generated electricity; underground formations for storing hydrogen; seaports whose import terminals are going to play a decisive role as logistics and business hubs; maritime enterprises and scientific expertise; as well as industry sectors with significant experience in handling hydrogen.
