      Vice Chancellor and Federal Economics and Climate Protection Minister Robert Habeck today appointed Dr. Sultan Al Jaber, Minister for Industry and High Technology of the United Arab Emirates, received a talk in the Federal Ministry of Economics in Berlin. Minister Al Jaber's visit to Berlin followed Minister Habeck's visit to Abu Dhabi on 21 March 2022. In bilateral talks, both ministers discussed the issues of intensified energy cooperation, especially on the subject of hydrogen. In a subsequent joint round table discussion with German business representatives, the next steps to expand hydrogen production and hydrogen trading were discussed. The common goal is to accelerate the ramp-up of the hydrogen economy. Robert Habeck on this: “Green hydrogen is an important key to a climate-neutral economy. We must resolutely promote climate protection in order to secure prosperity and freedom. We are therefore working hard to accelerate the ramp-up of green hydrogen and to expand the necessary infrastructure. Because we will soon have a high demand for green hydrogen and will also need imports in addition to production in Germany. The joint hydrogen projects between German industry and partners in the United Arab Emirates make a very important contribution to this.” During Minister Habeck’s most recent visit to the UAE on March 21, 2022, several cooperation agreements for the implementation of a joint hydrogen economy were concluded between the two countries. These projects were discussed today and further deepened. On March 21, 2022, the Emirati oil and gas company ADNOC signed an agreement with the German companies Hydrogenious and Uniper to set up a supply chain for green hydrogen between Abu Dhabi and Wilhelmshaven. As part of the demonstration project, 7-10 thousand tons of hydrogen are to be transported to Germany every year. First deliveries of green hydrogen are expected for 2025. Further agreements were concluded in March 2022 to test a transport chain for blue ammonia, the production of which from natural gas captures the CO2 produced. The first ammonia test cargo from the UAE is expected to arrive in the port of Hamburg in the second half of 2022. The Emirati Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure (MOEI) also wants to work with the German Fraunhofer Society to develop the Emirati hydrogen strategy. The joint projects between German industry and Emirati partners are part of the Emirati-German energy partnership that has existed since 2017 fields of hydrogen and renewable energies. The energy partnership is an initiative of the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Protection and the Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure of the UAE, which is supported by Guidehouse and the German-Emirati Chamber of Industry and Commerce (AHK). The Bilateral Task Force for Hydrogen and Synthetic Fuels was set up under the umbrella of the Energy Partnership, and its working groups met for the first time on March 14, 2022. The Hydrogen Task Force strengthens the cooperation between German and Emirati companies, research institutions and politicians to support joint climate-friendly energy projects and to achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement. German companies are also actively involved in various hydrogen projects in the UAE. In May 2021, Siemens Energy and Dubai Electricity
