Future-flexible booking: EnBW chooses Stade for LNG and H2 imports
The Hanseatic Energy Hub (HEH) is a future-flexible terminal for liquefied gases at the industrial location of Stade. The independent hub secures and diversifies Germany's import demand for affordable energy. In a first expansion stage, an emission-free LNG terminal is to be commissioned from 2026, with infrastructure also approved for bio-LNG and SNG. The planned regasification capacity is 13.3 bcm/a and the injection capacity is 21.7 GW. With the development of new climate-neutral energy sources, the hub will also facilitate the import of hydrogen-based energy carriers. HEH shareholders are the Buss Group, Fluxys, the Partners Group (on behalf of its clients), and Dow.
With over 26,000 employees, EnBW is one of the largest energy companies in Germany and Europe. It supplies around 5.5 million customers with electricity, gas, water as well as services and products in the areas of infrastructure and energy. The expansion of renewable energies is a cornerstone of the growth strategy and a focus of investment. EnBW will invest around 4 billion euros in the further expansion of wind and solar energy by 2025. By the end of 2025, more than half of the generation portfolio is set to consist of renewable energies. This is already having a noticeable effect on reducing CO₂ emissions, which EnBW aims to halve by 2030. EnBW is aiming for climate neutrality by 2035.
