Orsted pledged to link offshore wind to green hydrogen as it joined an already crowded field of heavyweights in a zero-subsidy tender for the Netherlands’ 750MW Hollandse Kust South 3&4 zone.

Green hydrogen produced from renewable power generation has long been seen as a potential option for storing excess output, and spreading its use to other sectors such as heating and transportation. A report this week said its use would be “widespread” by the middle of the century.
