Supporting the market scale-up of green hydrogen for a CO2-neutral industry
With the construction and operation of three hydrogen labs at Fraunhofer, a digitally cross-linked infrastructure with state of the art capacities for testing and qualification of elctrolyzer- and fuel cell systems in the range of 27 MW is available. More precisely, these test fields are equipped for the examination of efficiency and permanence of electrolyzers´ performance in conjunction with renewable energies. By bundling our hydrogen activities in northern and eastern Germany, we accelerate the necessary market scale up of hydrogen technologies. The Hydrogen Labs in Leuna, Görlitz and Bremerhaven are connected digitally, and cover the whole process: starting from CO2-neutral power generation with on- and offshore wind turbines, up to the optimization of electrolysis and manufacturing of electrolysers, and finally storage and transport of green hydrogen. Therefore, we can offer a worldwide unique spectrum of pilot plants, covering the complete value creation chain of the hydrogen economy.
