Hydrogen Infrastructure Applications

equipped with fittings from STÖHR ARMATUREN

The industry today
An important step towards a sustainable, climate-friendly energy system is the development of a hydrogen economy. Rapid leaps in innovation are inevitable with new technologies – from green generation, long distance transportation via existing gas transport and distribution networks, to storage in hydrogen caverns. These elements combine to make the energy carrier available on a large scale in future as required, and energy service providers play a key role in this. The necessary advances in climate protection can only be achieved with a focus on renewable energy molecules – including hydrogen – and not just electrons.

Green energy and future needs
In the future, energy suppliers will strive to become integrated hydrogen suppliers throughout the value chain – from generation and large-scale storage to transport infrastructure and local distribution.
To enable this to happen, the green energy system must integrate the basic properties of hydrogen:

  • It’s easy to store.
  • The methods of obtaining it in an economical, environmentally friendly way are well known.
  • It can easily be transported over long distances and, therefore, exchanged between regions or even countries.
  • It can connect various industries and sectors.
  • It can overcome network bottlenecks for renewable electricity between different regions by being transported to consumers in the form of green gas through existing pipelines.
