Smoke billows from the RWE coal-powered generator near the Groningen sea-port.

Smoke billows from the RWE coal-powered generator near the Groningen sea-port next to wind turbines and electricity grid. The coal generator is the cleanest one in the Netherlands but nonetheless produces toxic smoke and contributes to climate change.

Eemshaven is the energy port of the Netherlands, producing around 30% of the country's electricity. At the beginning it was fossil-based, but big steps towards sustainable energy are being taken. In addition to the RWE coal-fired power station pictured here, two inter-connectors from Denmark and Norway are coming in and several offshore wind farms above the Wadden Islands will be connected.
Here, offshore sustainable energy can be converted into green hydrogen on a large scale. The Eemshaven can also fill the hydrogen backbone with the planned hydrogen plants. The Netherlands can thus transform its role as gas traffic circle into hydrogen roundabout.
