Uruguay expects green hydrogen to invoice US$1.7 billion in 2040

The Minister of Industry, Energy and Mining, Omar Paganini, indicated that the Scandinavian countries and Germany have already been interested in the Uruguayan project, as well as the Netherlands, since green hydrogen exports would enter Europe through the port of Rotterdam.

RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - More than 30,000 jobs and a turnover of US$1.7 billion per year make up the horizon that the Uruguayan Government proposes for 2040 in the green hydrogen market, an alternative energy source for which the South American country has "significant potential".

This was stated this Tuesday by the Minister of Industry, Energy and Mining, Omar Paganini, who presented the roadmap for green hydrogen in Uruguay together with his colleague from Environment, Adrián Peña, and the Secretary of the Presidency, Álvaro Delgado, in the Torre Ejecutiva (seat of government).
