The Ministry of Economy, Industry, Climate Change and Energy strives to make its websites accessible. Websites should be designed to comply with national legislation transposing Directive (EU) 2016/2102 of the European Parliament.

The following accessibility statement applies to the website and was created on 01 April 2022.

The barrier-free presentation of a map, which above all serves to provide a visual overview of the hydrogen activities in North Rhine-Westphalia, is a great challenge.

In addition to a high-contrast presentation of the contents, we have therefore decided to include all map points shown on the map in a list whose text can be read aloud with the help of a screen reader. Likewise, all pictures have alt texts that can also be read aloud by a screen reader. It is possible to display the website in text mode.

Display of the website in text mode.
Read aloud by Sceen Reader (menu in the left part of the headphone symbol) possible.
