The Germany-wide hydrogen network HYPOS is not located in Central Germany without reason. In this combination, the region has unique features in Germany that predestine it as a preferred region for the implementation of a Green Hydrogen Economy.
In addition to the high potential for electricity production from renewable energies, it is especially the given infrastructures that distinguish the region around the Central German Chemical Triangle. For the distribution of green hydrogen, the 150-kilometer-long hydrogen pipeline running along the A9, Germany's second-longest, can be used. This pipeline already supplies the various hydrogen consumers from the fuel and chemical sectors as well as the ammonia production sector. Close to the pipeline are salt caverns that could be used for large-scale hydrogen storage. These could be used, for example, as energy storage facilities to bridge dark periods in a power supply system based on 100% renewable energies. Last but not least, there is a well-developed natural gas network, which opens up further diverse application and distribution channels for green hydrogen. Due to the existing applications, there is a broad knowledge in the use of hydrogen in the region, which is complemented by the expertise of research institutions.
Based on the European Green Deal, the national hydrogen strategy as well as the hydrogen strategies of the three central German states and the current market development, HYPOS e.V. pursues the goal of helping a cross-sector green hydrogen economy to achieve a breakthrough.
Main pillars of the HYPOS strategy are:
