Whitepaper hydrogen infrastructure
“Hydrogen infrastructure – the pillar of energy transition” – this is the title of a white paper published by Siemens Energy, Gascade and Nowega. The publication looks at the conversion of long-distance gas networks to hydrogen and thus provides important information on the development of a hydrogen infrastructure in Germany.
The conversion of part of the existing natural gas transmission network for the transport of hydrogen is part of the German government’s National Hydrogen Strategy. For the whitepaper, the three companies have looked at detailed questions that underline the feasibility of this planning. Energy flow and pipeline capacity are considered as well as storage options and practical cases for the hydrogen economy in operation. The model project GET H2 Nukleus, in which Nowega is also involved, is also considered as a case.
