Northern German states join forces for green hydrogen initiative

December 04, 2020


Abstract : The business development organizations in Germany’s northern states have joined forces to form the green hydrogen initiative HY-5.

The business development organizations in Germany’s northern states have joined forces to form the green hydrogen initiative HY-5. Their aim is to make northern Germany the most dynamic region for green hydrogen. An OECD study has confirmed that northern Germany is particularly suitable for the development of a green hydrogen economy, the initiative announced. The region has unique locational advantages for the production of renewable energies and a large potential demand for green hydrogen - especially from industry. Accordingly, a green hydrogen economy should be established in northern Germany by 2035.

The states of Bremen, Hamburg, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Lower Saxony, and Schleswig-Holstein together combine a maximum of experience and know-how in the field of sustainable technologies and energies as well as a high-performance infrastructure, for example, with regard to wind energy, the initiative explained. According to the North German Hydrogen Strategy, at least 500 megawatts of electrolysis capacity for the production of green hydrogen should be installed as early as 2025, and by 2030 the capacity should increase to at least five gigawatts.

Among northern Germany’s location advantages are more than a dozen seaports with logistics and import terminals, which want to expand their capacities for the import of hydrogen. In addition, there would be a hydrogen pipeline, geological underground formations such as storage caverns, and a well-developed natural gas network infrastructure. And northern Germany also leads the way in the field of research. Within a radius of around 200 kilometers, there are scientists working at two dozen universities and technical colleges, and more than 20 Fraunhofer institutes and Helmholtz centers, among others.
