Development of innovative infrastructures to supply consumers in the hydrogen village

Project goals

  • Development and implementation of a distribution network infrastructure with house connection lines for a green hydrogen supply
  • Testing through the pilot supply of the planned test site "hydrogen village" in conjunction with H2-Home
  • Qualification of high-density plastic pipelines for the distribution network structure and for indoor installations
  • Consideration of higher pressures in combination with plastic pipe systems with optimal sustainability, supply reliability, security and efficiency
  • Definition and testing of required safety technology identification of an odorant suitable for hydrogen
  • Technical and economic evaluation of the overall system using a simulation model
  • Derivation of optimization potential for the design, construction and operation of the systems as well as for materials and components


  • Permeation cell
  • Innovative laying process
  • Gas pressure network system
