Electriq Global receives grant for its hydrogen powder manufacturing plant

Electriq Global, an Israeli-based developer of the next generation of hydrogen solid carriers, has been awarded a €1.1-million grant from the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO) for its hydrogen powder manufacturing plant, slated to be built in the Port of Amsterdam and scheduled to begin operations in 2026.

Electriq Global’s proprietary energy-rich powder enables hydrogen storage, transportation, and delivery in ambient and non-pressurized conditions, ‘revolutionizing the energy landscape,’ according to the company.

This project, which came to the Netherlands with the help of the Netherlands Foreign Investment Agency (NFIA) and its Invest in Holland partner ‘amsterdam inbusiness’, aligns with the Port of Amsterdam and the H2A association’s vision to transform the port into a central hub for hydrogen carriers, with a target of handling one million tons of hydrogen by 2030.

Dr. Dmitry Lisitsin, Head of Powder Solutions at Electriq Global, commented: “This grant will enable us to continue the design and engineering of the first-of-its-kind Electriq Powder plant. Our breakthrough technology promises to significantly reduce production costs and drastically lower carbon footprint.”

Jeff Armstrong, CEO of Zenith Energy Terminals, said: “We are very pleased to see Electriq’s Powder plant receive RVO support. Our partnership with Electriq embodies our shared vision for sustainable energy solutions and Zenith’s transition to storing zero-emission fuels on our Amsterdam terminal.”

Dorine Bosman, Chief Investment Officer at Port of Amsterdam, added: “Port of Amsterdam strongly supports the Electriq Powder plant, as it aligns perfectly with H2A’s mission. The support granted by RVO is a great example of the close and essential collaboration between the public and private sectors, as we jointly strive for realization of the hydrogen economy. This initiative is a testimony to our collective commitment to foster a more sustainable energy landscape in the Dutch and European markets.”
