Preparing for a platform for a hydrogen-based industry in North Rhine-Westphalia

The challenge

Hydrogen technologies bare a lot of efficient solutions to master energy transitions, but still need be brought to economic competitiveness through prototypes, which often need large-scale investments. A solution but a great challenge too, is to gather the capable stakeholders in the Rhenish lignite area with their special competences, to share financial risks and to concentrate existing knowledge and expertise while focusing on project realisation and new business cases.

What we want to achieve

Through stakeholder collaboration and consultation, the project flags opportunities and barriers for implementing hydrogen-based alternatives in the area. This will further support the preparation for a platform for a hydrogen-based industry in North Rhine-Westphalia.
