Hydrogen (H2) is a powerful energy carrier which can be used to link the sectors of power, gas, heat and mobility. Generated by electrolysis and making use of renewable energy it is environmentally friendly. Hydrogen can be produced in decentralized units at the location of energy production or energy demand in any amount.
Advantages of the production of H2
Hydrogen can cover the demand to store increasing amounts of especially discontinuously generated energy, even for a long time. Furthermore, small, medium or large quantities of hydrogen can be generated on the spot in a decentralized manner.
Advantages on the consumption side
Hydrogen is very versatile, its applications are quiet and low in emissions: in the laboratory, in use in mobility and also for the strategically significant national energy storage. Thanks to its diversity, hydrogen excellently combines the sectors of electricity, gas, heat and mobility.
