H2Berlin: Study on hydrogen demand in Berlin 2025 ready for publication

The demand for low-emission hydrogen in Berlin in 2025 is 9,000 tonnes

This is the result of our study based on the model of the research center Jülich. The amount is required in the energy system to enable Berlin to achieve its objectives towards climate neutrality in 2050 on the path of energy system transformation at optimized costs.
Lower hydrogen consumption would lead to unnecessary expenditure.
The city now needs to take action.
If the current coverage of launched hydrogen projects is not enlarged, the city will have a hydrogen consumption of 37 tonnes per annum in 2025. The Senate Administration, Berlin Partner, InfraLab Berlin, NOW GmbH, HyCologne and DWV will support to fill this extensive gap.
In the next few months, H2Berlin will develop a show case for the capital city, spanning companies and sectors along the entire value chain, in a dimension that will enable the necessary hydrogen economy to be activated. Further information can be found in the study.

H2Berlin: Initiators signed cooperation agreement

Hydrogen initiative for reducing the consumption of fossil fuels in the capital city.

In order to meet the climate goals, “green” hydrogen increasingly appears indispensable. According to experts from science and industry, an economically efficient energy transition with adequate supply security will not be possible without the development of a hydrogen infrastructure.
This especially applies to the metropolis Berlin. Brandenburg is making the transition. “After coal comes hydrogen”, announced the Minister President. How should Berlin position itself in the context of the structural change in Brandenburg? What does this mean in the context of the historical importance of Lausitz as the capital’s central energy supplier? How will the BER airport be supplied with synthetic kerosene? How will it be possible to make Berlin’s biggest CO2 emitters, the heating sector, climate-neutral? What does the infrastructure for hydrogen powered public transport look like? What would be the first steps for the development of a hydrogen economy? What would its roadmap look like? What are the most economically effective levers?  What are the quick wins?
The goal of H2Berlin is to bring together the capital’s progressive economic players around a table and discuss what the hydrogen infrastructure of the future would look like and how a hydrogen economy in Berlin could be built.
Kickoff participants have been the leading utility suppliers and disposers Vattenfall, Gasag, Berliner Wasserbetriebe and Berliner Stadtwerke (garbage management BSR and public transportation BVG are expected to join in two weeks). Our partners, the initiative HyCologne from NRW, the NOW GmbH and the DWV supported us to make a success of the first round table on January 28, 2020.
Next steps are a demand and market analysis for business applications of sustainable hydrogen and the identification of first "low hanging fruits".

What is the impact of hydrogen as sustainable energy carrier on Berlin´ s economy and infrastructure?

Follow-up Hydrogen Colloquium for Financial Service Providers on July 7th 2020

On July 7th we will present the measures of the German Federal Government to ramp up a hydrogen economy until 2023. These large-scale, very comprehensive measures are necessary both to get our domestic economy going again after the corona pandemic and to invest in promising sectors of the economy, and to give the people here a sustainable perspective.
We will put these measures of the Federal Government's Hydrogen Strategy in relation to the participation opportunities for investors in the financial services industry. We will evaluate them in terms of their potential risks and returns. With regard to these measures the aim of the working group will be

- Creation of (stable) framework conditions for investments for private capital collection agencies/investors to promote and help shape sustainable and future-oriented German/European infrastructure
- Preparation of investment options in hydrogen infrastructure projects
- Technical preparation for hydrogen investments

We will organise the work required for this in the form of a expert commission under the umbrella of the German Hydrogen Association with the participation of IDI (Initiative Deutsche Infrastruktur).

With its quarterly series of colloquia, our service unit HERE will provide a forum for the exchange between financial service providers, politicians, and representatives from industry, in order to develop infrastructure solutions for securing the energy transition in Europe. We clarify how, and with what concrete initiatives, the exit from the fossil fuel society can be achieved together with the aid of hydrogen from renewable energies, and how they can be prepared as alternative investments for the financial services industry. With this task force we launch selected initiatives and report on progress and new investment potential.

Hydrogen Colloquium for Financial Service Providers on October 15, 2019

Task force for 
- the development of stable framework conditions for private investors and financial intermediaries
- the promotion and contribution to a sustainable and forward looking hydrogen infrastructure
- the development of adequate investment programms.

First discussion round on the potential for investment in a hydrogen infrastructure / economy from renewable energies with the goal of clearing the path for the replacement of fossil fuels. Thanks to the participation of W&W, Alte Leipziger, BayernLB, DKB, Triodos, Notos Consult, the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs, the Association of the German Petroleum Industry (MWV), H2Mobility, German Technical and Scientific Association for Gas and Water (DVGW), and the German Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Association (DWV) the meeting proved highly productive. The follow-up event is planned for April 2020.
Discussion on the framework conditions for largescale investment in a hydrogen infrastructure from renewable energy.

The European Green Deal

Our impetus is the European ideal. The current highest European aspiration is the Green Deal. We make our contribution.
The model for economic growth on the basis of fossil fuels is obsolete.
The irrevocable burning of natural gas, oil and coal has a finite perspective.
The future belongs to the sustainable resources from environmentally neutral cyclical economic processes.
For the energy supply it is water,
We store the energy from sun and wind in hydrogen.
The water is re-produced after combustion of hydrogen.
No additives, no emissions, just water, air and sun - with an inexhaustible reserve of 6,000 times the current energy requirements of the whole humanity.
