Northwest Lower Saxony - Foundation for Supply Security and Transformation

The current political situation and debates on security of supply once again highlight the importance of Northwest Lower Saxony as an energy location for Germany and all of Europe. Lower Saxony creates the foundation for security of supply with sustainable energy and thus for the transformation of the economy. Several large-scale projects, e.g. for the production and import of climate-friendly energy carriers such as green hydrogen and synthetic fuels and gases, as well as their transport and storage, are important building blocks in this context. We would like to present and discuss these large-scale projects, their significance for the EU and how they interact to ensure a secure energy supply, together with the Lower Saxony Minister for the Environment, Energy, Building and Climate Protection, Olaf Lies, and those responsible for the projects. We cordially invite you to attend.
