RWE is paving the way for green hydrogen
Hydrogen is seen as playing a key role in the decarbonisation of energy-intensive sectors. In addition to reducing CO2 emissions in industrial processes, hydrogen could be used as a sustainable fuel in the transport sector and as a sustainable combustible for heat supply in the medium term. The ever increasing interlinking of potential applications – electricity and heat, transport and industry – is referred to as sector coupling.
Green hydrogen in particular is a key technology in the drive for climate neutrality. There are good reasons for this:
- No emissions in generation and application
- Safe to transport, store and handle
- Can be used flexibly either as a fuel or raw material and mixed with natural gas subject to defined limits
- Serves as the basis for producing e-fuels, particularly for cars, aircraft and ships
- Low land use, widely accepted in society
RWE is currently working at full speed on 30 green hydrogen projects together with partners. The positioning of the company along the entire value chain offers ideal conditions for the expansion of a functioning hydrogen infrastructure. In onshore and offshore windpower, in the development of generation facilities for green hydrogen and in the operation of large-scale gas-fired power stations. Thus, RWE has extensive expertise and experience in developing hydrogen all over Europe. This includes participation in projects such as GET H2, NortH2 and AquaVentus. Find out more here.
