12/22/2020 – Press release – Energy transition


In the real laboratory of the energy transition “H2Wyhlen”, an infrastructure for green hydrogen will be expanded and tested over the next five years in Grenzach-Wyhlen in Baden-Württemberg. The research consortium will expand an existing “power-to-hydrogen plant” by five megawatts of electrical output and test it under real conditions. For this, the association received the funding notification from the Federal Ministry of Economics. The real laboratory will start on January 1st, 2021. Parliamentary State Secretary Thomas Bareiß, Member of the Bundestag: “Hydrogen as a climate-friendly energy carrier is an essential component for a successful energy transition in which economy and ecology are in harmony. With the National Hydrogen Strategy, we are paving the way for the ramp-up of hydrogen technologies. With the real laboratories of the energy transition, we have been promoting projects that test innovative and new energy technologies under real conditions for a year. This is exactly what the real laboratory H2Wyhlen implements: It is a test room for a local energy and raw material supply with electricity-based hydrogen for residential areas, industrial areas and regional hydrogen customers. I am happy about the first real laboratory of the energy transition in Baden-Württemberg. ”The real laboratories of the energy transition are a funding measure of the BMWi in the 7th energy research program of the federal government. The aim of the real-world laboratories is to accelerate the transfer of research into the market by allowing innovations on an industry-relevant scale to be tried out under real market conditions in test rooms. Twenty consortia with innovative ideas for the energy supply of the future were nominated in an ideas competition, each of which links several energy technologies and consumption sectors. With H2Wyhlen, the fifth real laboratory for the energy transition is starting. Further information is available here and here.
