The vision of the HYPOS projects
Tomorrow's energy system will be based on renewable energies. By converting it into hydrogen, green energy can be transported, stored and converted into heat, power and electricity as required.
Hydrogen is eco-friendly and long-lasting
Green Hydrogen is not only a cost-effective solution for future energy systems, it is also clean, environmentally friendly and sustainable - in contrast to the original production from fossil natural gas. In addition, hydrogen is an important raw material in the chemical industry and proves to be a viable alternative to environmentally harmful fuels.
HYPOS REDEFINES THE STATE OF THE ART IN SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY FOR THE HYDROGEN SECTOR.
HYPOS pursues the goal of gradually replacing the fossil-fueled hydrogen requirements and making electricity-based hydrogen technology economically viable.
The project follows the approach of a transregional and interdisciplinary bundling of competences from industry, research and SMEs in Central Germany with the common goal to achieve a profitable conversion of electicity into hydrogen and its application.
For this purpose, the electricity network, gas grid, gas storage facilities and hydrogen pipelines are to be linked to form an intelligent infrastructure for power generation, hydrogen production, transport and storage. Individual technologies are improved and developed further, new developments and innovations are fostered, use paths are opened or expanded and new methods for large-scale applications are created. In doing so, the sum of the individual innovations is supposed to yield advantages for the entire value chain.
