Mobility

Hydrogen mobility in Lower Saxony

Emissions reduction in mobility plays a crucial role in climate targets. Hydrogen can make a significant contribution to decarbonizing the transport sector. However, a distinction should be made between areas where its use is absolutely necessary and areas where efficient alternatives are already available on the market.

Shipping

The Innovation and Technology Center (ITZ) North develops environmentally friendly means of transport. The aim is to significantly reduce CO2 emissions from aircraft and ships. In Stade, the climate-friendly fuel cell and hydrogen technology in particular is to be advanced.

Coradia iLint hydrogen train

Train traffic

Alstom has developed the Coradia iLint, the world's first passenger train powered by fuel cells. This is intended to reduce emissions in the German rail network. The hydrogen train started regular passenger service in the summer of 2022.

Special vehicles

Hydrogen also enables low-CO2 mobility in the area of special vehicles. These include waste collection vehicles and road sweepers, for example. By 2026, 12,000 vehicles from Lower Saxony are to be put on the road. Text Text Text Text Text Text.

No energy transition without skilled workers

"By 2030, we will need 70,000 hydrogen specialists in Germany," says Ruggero Capperucci.

Knowledge Finder

The National Organization Hydrogen (NOW) offers factsheets and online seminars on hydrogen mobility.

Multiplier workshop

NWN and OLEC invite to the multiplier workshop on the use of hydrogen in the logistics industry. We will provide insights into current framework conditions, planned infrastructures and best practices. Afterwards, we will visit the DLR-EV laboratories together.

Projects in the field of mobility

In Lower Saxony, there are a large number of pilot and demonstration projects in the field of mobility. On land, they range from decentralized infrastructures for hydrogen vehicles to agricultural machinery, waste collection and special-purpose vehicles. Research projects are investigating the use of hydrogen-produced e-fuels in shipping and aviation. 

10 Megawatt Elektrolyseur im Hafen Brake

10 Megawatt Elektrolyseur im Hafen Brake

Im niedersächsischen Brake beginnt ab Februar 2024 die Errichtung eines Elektrolyseurs mit einer Leistung von 10 Megawatt. Das Projekt wird von dem Wasserstoffproduzenten Lhyfe auf dem Gelände der NiedersachsenPorts am Braker Hafen umgesetzt und soll – insbesondere im Bereich der Mobilität und der Industrie – in die lokale Wertschöpfung eingebettet werden.

Emden E1

Emden E1

Im Jahr 2026 plant Statkraft in Emden die Elektrolyseanlage „Emden E1“ in Betrieb zu nehmen, um grünen Wasserstoff herzustellen. Der Elektrolyseur soll eine Leistung von 10 Megawatt haben und stündlich etwa 200 Kilogramm Wasserstoff erzeugen. Der grüne Wasserstoff soll im regionalen Verkehrssektor zum Einsatz kommen.

H2Move

H2Move

In the H2Move project, the supply ships of Mittelplate Drilling and Production Island are to be converted to hydrogen hybrid drives. The hydrogen required for this is to be produced in a CO2-neutral manner in Cuxhaven.

HyNEAT

HyNEAT

Die Dekarbonisierung des Flugverkehrs stellt eine besondere Herausforderung dar - der Einsatz von Wasserstoff und seiner Derivate bietet jedoch das Potenzial, in Zukunft klimafreundlich zu fliegen. Hierzu muss jedoch die Infrastruktur so weiterentwickelt werden, dass die Versorgung mit Wasserstoff an Flughäfen gewährleistet ist. Genau dieser Herausforderung stellt sich das Projekt „HyNEAT“.
