Ready for hydrogen

How we push forward the energy transition

Download image

We are on the threshold of a new era in energy supply – a future with hydrogen. A secure supply requires strategic partnerships, new approaches to generation and a modern infrastructure. At EnBW, we are among the pioneers and drivers of the H future: With our expertise and experience, we are helping to make the energy transition a reality.

Building the hydrogen economy is a monumental task. We are tackling the transformation at all levels: from generation to transportation, storage and distribution. We have also set ourselves ambitious targets for our own power plants and plan to switch to hydrogen by 2035.

Sun and wind are turned into hydrogen

Wind and solar parks have to be switched off time and again whenever too much electricity is generated at the same time. Electrolyzers convert green electricity and water into hydrogen directly on site. In this way, energy can be stored during generation peaks and transported to where it is needed.

Infrastructure for the H₂ economy

Large storage facilities in underground salt caverns are an important part of the hydrogen infrastructure. With their help, fluctuating energy demand can be reliably covered. The existing natural gas infrastructure is largely suitable for transportation. Today, we are already building new pipelines that are H₂-ready.

Production, heating, transport

Green hydrogen can be used in many ways. In the future, it will be used to power airplanes, heat blast furnaces and serve as a raw material for industry. Test projects show: As a mixture of natural gas and hydrogen, it can already be used in households today.
