Within the program, several studies are conducted to gain an understanding of the future supply chains of emission-free or “green” Hydrogen. HyChain I, the first study conducted within the program, focusses on the adoption of green Hydrogen in Dutch industry. The question being what the potential demand will be for hydrogen within the Netherlands and more specifically Dutch industry. 

To answer this question, we used our vast knowledge of the Dutch industry and our ability to think conceptually. By translating our practical knowledge to general concepts and trends, we gained insights into the expected demand of hydrogen as well as the demand of possible alternatives. Based on these insights, further studies can be conducted to expand the understanding of the potential of green hydrogen in the Netherlands and Europe with the hope of kickstarting Hydrogen-based initiatives.
