Hydrogen

Tomorrow's green energy

Hydrogen will play a central role in the energy mix of the future. By being generated from renewable sources, such as wind power or photovoltaics, which use electrolysis, it will reduce CO2 emissions in many different sectors. Hydrogen can be used to power fuel cells in vehicles or ships, as a replacement for coal in steel plants or as the basic raw material for industrial processes. It can also be used to store the excess electricity generated on sunny or windy days.

The North of Germany is a region particularly well suited to hydrogen production. This region already leads the way in renewable technologies, is close to the wind farms in the North Sea, has storage capacity in its underground caverns and also has a well-established industrial infrastructure that can make direct use of this climate-neutral gas. As a pioneer in the field of renewable energy, with a wealth of science-based companies and research facilities, the state of Bremen is a focal point in the green revolution in the use of hydrogen.

The BIS Bremerhavener Gesellschaft für Investitionsförderung und Stadtentwicklung mbH provides an overview of the networks, platforms and currently active projects.
