Heligoland has a population of a little more than 1,000 residents, and the windswept German island on the edge of the North Sea is a popular destination for tourists who want to get away.

But Heligoland has a hot commodity — offshore wind — and it is looking to use that resource to make what could one day be another hot commodity: green hydrogen.

As TradeWinds recently reported, Heligoland’s municipality has hired HPC Hamburg Port Consulting to find out whether it should build a fuelling station to sell green hydrogen to shipping companies that want to power their vessels with this carbon-free fuel.
