From Sunday (August 21) until next Tuesday (August 23), Scholz’s visit will focus on key areas such as safeguarding energy security and accelerating the global clean energy transition, through securing access to key resources including hydrogen.
Reuters on Thursday (August 18) reported that the German Chancellor will sign a deal to establish hydrogen supply chains with the country during the visit, as Germany looks to rapidly reduce dependence on Russian gas supplied.
H2 View understands the two leaders will visit a hydrogen trade show in Newfoundland where they will speak to experts and view a variety of clean hydrogen projects, technologies and services.
It is hoped the visit will encourage the countries to continue its collaboration on developing a clean economy, with Canadian and German research having already come to the forefront of advancing clean hydrogen technologies.
In a statement, Justin Trudeau, Prime Minister of Canada, commented, “Germany and Canada are close friends on the world stage. We are tied by our shared commitments to democracy, peace and security, including our support for Ukraine, a clean, healthy future, and an economy that works for people.
“I look forward to showing Chancellor Scholz what Canada has to offer, while we further strengthen our relationship, create jobs, and help grow the middle class in both countries.”
