Green gas for Bremerhaven
For the long-term success of the energy transition, with the goal of a 100 percent sustainable energy supply using renewable energies, we need alternatives to fossil fuels. However, energy sources such as the sun and wind are not available in equal quantities every day - an energy supply that relies increasingly on renewable energies needs a storage medium to balance out natural fluctuations and maintain surpluses: Hydrogen as a molecular energy storage medium, which is converted back into energy through combustion, plays a key role in this as a versatile energy carrier in the course of the energy transition and is suitable for decentralized, i.e. distributed, generation, storage and use. On the application side, the technical possibilities for hydrogen are basically available, but must be adapted to the individual requirements of the sectors and tested in order to achieve marketability and competitiveness.
