Lower Saxony becomes hydrogen state no. 1
In the meantime, we see a multitude of projects in the Lower Saxony hydrogen landscape around the development of renewable energies, hydrogen production, infrastructure, storage, and use in industry and mobility. The NWN provides an overview of current activities and lighthouse projects in Lower Saxony. Your project is missing? Then contact us.
Die Wasserstoff-Karte: Niedersachsens Projekte auf einen Blick! Wo entstehen welche Projekte? Was ist in Planung? Was in der Umsetzung?
Hydrogen drying by absorption
Bilfinger is currently developing a demonstration plant for hydrogen drying in Cloppenburg. Drying is necessary in order to be able to convert the hydrogen back into electricity after storage (e.g. in caverns) or to feed it into the grid.
Hydrogen Cavern for Mobility
In the HyCAVmobil (Hydrogen Cavern for Mobility) project, EWE and its partners are researching the conditions under which pure hydrogen can be stored in salt caverns.
RWE builds 14 megawatt electrolysis test plant in Lingen
The state of Lower Saxony is supporting RWE's planned construction of a test electrolysis plant in Lingen to produce green hydrogen. The plant is to produce green hydrogen from mid-2023.
Steel production currently still produces large quantities of CO2. Salzgitter AG's SALCOS project aims to show how climate-friendly steel production can become a reality - through the use of hydrogen.
Clean Hydrogen Coastline
In the course of the "Clean Hydrogen Coastline" project, industry partners in the Northwest region want to build 400 megawatts of electrolysis capacity by 2026.
Northern Green Crane
The Northern Green Crane project will link hydrogen production in Sweden with demand centers in Central Europe - including Lingen in the Emsland region.
Hydrogen train Coradia iLint
Alstom has developed Coradia iLint, the world's first fuel cell-powered passenger train, with the aim of reducing emissions in the German rail network.
Hanover Municipal Drainage
From sewage treatment plant to energy plant: Stadtentwässerung Hannover will soon not only supply the city of Hannover with clean water, but also public transport with green hydrogen.
Hydrogen storage in Etzel
In Etzel, experts in the H2CAST joint project are investigating whether the local salt domes are suitable for storing large quantities of hydrogen.
