ENaQ: Neighbourhood Energy Quarter Fliegerhorst Oldenburg

In the ENaQ project (Energetisches Nachbarschaftsquartier Fliegerhorst Oldenburg), a climate-neutral neighbourhood is being built on a former air base in Oldenburg, where smart and sustainable solutions for energy supply and mobility are to be used. The energy demand will be largely covered by locally generated renewable energies - green hydrogen will be used as a storage medium and for mobility.

In the Fliegerhorst neighbourhood, the sectors of electricity, heat and mobility are to be coupled in an exemplary manner and a smart, climate-neutral neighbourhood is to be created. Hydrogen will also be used - on the one hand to secure the neighbourhood's energy supply, but also to demonstrate the practical benefits of hydrogen technologies (e.g. in the mobility sector).

Hydrogen is to be used as a storage medium and for reverse power generation, which is why the quarter will be equipped with an electrolyser and a fuel cell. For this purpose, a control system is to be developed at the neighbourhood level in cooperation with project partners, which supports the production, storage and provision of the green hydrogen. The necessary renewable electricity is to be produced in the neighbourhood by photovoltaics or other green electricity sources that may be set up.  

In addition to being used as a storage medium, the green hydrogen will also be made available for a mobile hydrogen tank trailer.

Ultimately, a complete system is to be developed in the neighbourhood that forms a basis for the energy self-sufficiency of the neighbourhood by providing local electricity and green hydrogen.
