Building on Germany's recent $10.2 billion hydrogen strategy and stimulus plan, this project in wind-rich northern Germany consists of a 2 MW electrolyzer, storage tank, combined heat and power plant, and stabilizing battery. The total project cost is in the low double-digit millions of euros, and it has been in the planning since 2018. The project will absorb excess green energy in hydrogen for use in a nearby industrial park (which includes a car part supplier) and to provide fuel to public transportation. This projects shows the value of a sector coupling strategy for hydrogen projects, and clients should expect German government support to continue to accelerate both large and smaller-scale hydrogen projects.
