Hydrogen technologies

Hydrogen plays a central role in achieving the climate targets. We are investigating how the individual technologies can be integrated into the energy system and used on a large scale.

Hydrogen technologies are indispensable for the success of the energy transition. They can close the gap between fluctuating electricity generation from renewable energies and the demand for green electricity, replace fossil fuels in industrial processes and link the energy sectors electricity, heat, industry and transport more closely – and do so as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.

With its unique research infrastructure, Helmholtz is helping to develop, test and market hydrogen technologies. The spectrum ranges from the basics to application and covers the entire value chain.
