Facilitating the application process for hydrogen filling stations with digitalisation


University project H2BPMM shows research results on Monday, 12 June, from 2:30 p.m.

When the end of conventional fuels is discussed, the possible applications of green hydrogen are also often discussed. In order to refuel vehicles with the climate-friendly gas, however, a corresponding infrastructure in the form of hydrogen filling stations is needed. At present, the application procedures are still very complicated and thus slow down the expansion. Can this be simplified and digitalised to make hydrogen drives more attractive for companies in the future? The Smart Mobility Institute of Bremerhaven University of Applied Sciences has investigated this within the framework of the project "H2BPMM - Hydrogen Technology Business Process Management Modelling" and cordially invites all interested parties to the final event on Monday, 12 June, from 2:30 p.m. at Haus THP (Theodor-Heuss-Platz 1, 27568 Bremerhaven). In addition to the presentation of the project results, two lectures are planned on the topics of the expansion and planning status of hydrogen filling stations and the decarbonisation of refrigerated transport. Registration for the event is possible by sending an email to Further information on the programme is available at

The researchers have been working on the topic for about three years. Although there are already a number of established approval processes for plants, there are none for hydrogen technology, which is still very new. A standardised process and a digital process description, including prototypical implementation, should therefore be developed to facilitate the work of applicants and authorities. During the final event, the project team will provide insights into the possibilities for standardising and digitising permission and approval processes for hydrogen infrastructures, using the example of a hydrogen filling station, and show how future permission and approval processes could look in order to accelerate the expansion of hydrogen infrastructures, especially in the Northwest Metropolitan Region.

The project "Hydrogen Technology Business Process Management Modelling" (H2BPMM) is funded in the "Digitalisation" call of the Northwest Metropolitan Region Development Fund of the states of Bremen and Lower Saxony. The final event will take place as part of the Hydrogen Week and the Hydrogen Days Northwest 2023.
