During the closing remarks of the summit Vice Mayor Bonte highlighted the ambition to make Rotterdam Europe’s largest hydrogen hub:
"Hydrogen is one of the building blocks of our sustainable strategy. We want to make the port of Rotterdam the centre for the production, the distribution and also the usage of hydrogen. The hydrogen hub is the key in our energy transition. We need green hydrogen to replace fossil fuels in our industry, in our ships and in our trucks.
Rotterdam is the place to be for hydrogen solutions. So if you want to test, invest or develop anything with hydrogen you are welcome in the city and the port of Rotterdam!"
The City of Rotterdam hopes to welcome everybody at next year's summit in Rotterdam.
