THEWA - Thermal management of hydrogen filling station systems

If hydrogen is to find widespread use in the mobility sector, effective solutions are needed for the refuelling process. In this context, the "THEWA" project, which is funded as an innovation laboratory by the state of Lower Saxony, aims to research and provide overall system concepts for future hydrogen filling stations. 

The Project "THEWA - Thermal Management of Hydrogen Filling Station Systems" at TU Braunschweig aims to advance the use of hydrogen in the mobility sector - by researching concepts for hydrogen filling stations and providing them in various exemplary use cases. This is because hydrogen filling stations have to meet quite specific requirements that vary depending on the vehicle and the hydrogen storage technology used. The focus is therefore on multimodal filling stations for refuelling different modes of transport, for example cars, buses or trucks.

The project is funded by the Lower Saxony Ministry of Science and Culture (MWK) as part of the so-called "Innovation Labs". The innovation labs are to further develop hydrogen technologies and are funded with up to 6.5 million euros. More information on the innovation labs.
