This year’s 28th UN Climate Change Conference will be held from 30 Nov to 12 Dec 2023, at Dubai Expo City, UAE. Thousands of leaders, diplomats, and international politicians from around the world are expected to attend. As the third-largest oil producer in the OPEC, the UAE is actively promoting energy transformation and laying foundations for the hydrogen energy industry.
Earlier on, Mubadala Investments, a sovereign fund of the UAE owned by Masdar Clean Energy, jointly established the “Hydrogen Energy Alliance” with Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC) and Abu Dhabi Holding Company, to accelerate adoption of hydrogen in transportation & industrial purposes. ADNOC has announced it will establish the first hydrogen refueling station in the Middle East, to be equipped with 10 Toyota and 10 BMW passenger cars. As a demo project for the 28th UN Climate Change Conference, it targets to begin operations by October 2023. ADNOC also plans to build 176 hydrogen refueling stations in the next 5 years.
Guofu Hydrogen Energy and Broaden Energy have pitched and jointly won the bid for the ADNOC’s integrated hydrogen production and refueling station project. Guofu Hydrogen Energy will deliver the water electrolysis hydrogen production system and refueling station equipment for the integrated station project, as well as operations and maintenance services during the UN Climate Change Conference. Wupinfang, Guofu Hydrogen Energy Chairman, met with Broaden Energy on Palm Island, Dubai on 22 Jun 2023. After reaching a consensus on cooperation, they signed an MOU and a supply agreement for ADNOC’s project.
This is the first overseas water electrolysis hydrogen production and equipment business project which is bid and won by Guofu Hydrogen Energy, making a key milestone in its global business strategy.
As a leading hydrogen energy company in China, Guofu Hydrogen Energy provides full industrial chain solutions to produce, store and apply green hydrogen. Starting this year, Guofu Hydrogen Energy has been building its presence across Europe, the Middle East, Brazil, South Africa, and Australia. It has established a positive reputation in the global energy market, having been inspected and certified by international energy customers. According to signed strategic cooperation agreements, Guofu Hydrogen Energy is expecting 1 billion USD in overseas orders over the next five years. It will continue to explore new opportunities in the hydrogen energy business internationally, to fully support global decarbonization goals as a responsible clean energy brand.
