From coal to natural gas to hydrogen

Coal phaseout at the site in Altbach/Deizisau

By constructing a new combined cycle gas turbine (CCGT) plant, EnBW wants to replace coal with more climate-friendly natural gas at its Altbach/Deizisau site by means of a so-called fuel switch. This switch to natural gas represents the bridge that will ultimately lead to green gases such as hydrogen produced from renewable sources. EnBW thus plans to keep its promise of achieving climate neutrality by 2035 – the company’s contribution to climate change mitigation to which it has committed itself in line with the 2015 Paris Agreement. With this aim in mind, EnBW will continue to systematically expand renewable energy capacity and completely phase out the use of coal as an energy source in the medium term. In doing so, the number-one priority is to ensure that the supply of electricity and heat is never under threat.
