Mitsubishi Corporation (MC) has established Eneco Diamond Hydrogen B.V. (Eneco Diamond Hydrogen) with the aim of advancing green hydrogen and related renewable energy initiatives in Europe. Eneco Diamond Hydrogen, officially registered on June 6, 2023, is a joint venture between MC and its subsidiary N.V. Eneco, a Rotterdam-based integrated energy company.


As the global drive to reduce carbon emissions intensifies, more nations are actively seeking to integrate renewable energy into their energy portfolios. As Hydrogen can be easily stored, transported, and utilized as both an alternative fuel and a flexible power grid resource, it is generating significant interest. The EU has been actively expediting the adoption of hydrogen, demonstrated by the fact that it has set annual goals for the production and importation of 10 million tons of green hydrogen by 2030.

Eneco Diamond Hydrogen leverages the strengths of its parent companies to cultivate green hydrogen and related renewable energy ventures, extending beyond its roots in the Netherlands. This involves capitalizing on Eneco’s extensive expertise in the renewable energy sector, as well as harnessing MC’s expansive network, which includes operations in industries such as oil refining, chemicals, steel, marine transport, etc.
