    KYIV. Jan 18 (Interfax-Ukraine) - Ukraine has sufficient resources and capabilities to launch the first hydrogen projects and start exporting hydrogen to Germany by 2024.

    President of the Ukrainian Hydrogen Council Oleksandr Repkin said this in a comment to the Green Deal portal, sharing the details of a meeting with German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock.

    "Annalena Baerbock is responsible for the entire German climate dialogue in the foreign arena, so the topic of hydrogen is very important for her. At the meeting, we told her that at this stage Ukraine has enough resources and opportunities to launch the first and start exporting hydrogen to Germany projects by 2024," he said.

    Repkin specified that hydrogen will be transported in a mixture with natural gas through the existing gas transmission system.

    "We are already ready to transport 10% concentration of hydrogen mixed with natural gas via the GTS. By 2024, subject to modernization, the percentage may be higher. The main thing is to choose an entry point, a place where you can connect to the GTS, and then it will be possible to transport the mixture," he said.

    Earlier, Foreign Minister of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba also spoke about the plans to start exporting "green" hydrogen to Germany from 2024, but with a caveat "according to the optimistic scenario."

    At the meeting with the head of German diplomacy on January 17, Kuleba once again spoke about Ukraine's plans to become a key supplier of "green" hydrogen to the EU.

    "Ukraine is actively developing renewable energy, in particular, it plans to become a key supplier of "green" hydrogen to the EU. We are strengthening energy partnership with Germany and developing a number of major projects in the production and transportation of "green" hydrogen," the foreign minister said.
