Uruguay covers 98 % of its energy needs from renewable energy sources and aims to position itself as a global production location for green hydrogen. In 2020, the AHK Uruguay, together with the German Embassy in Montevideo and German companies, launched a hydrogen initiative to supply green hydrogen to Germany. The first major hydrogen project by a German company was already presented to the public in May 2022. To drive the national expansion of a hydrogen economy, the Uruguayan government has also started its own pilot projects (H2U and H2U Offshore) and created a green hydrogen fund in inter-institutional working groups of ministries and state-owned companies.
