Hydrogen concept of the city of Cuxhaven
The coastal region of Cuxhaven offers ideal conditions for the development of the hydrogen economy as the mainstay of the energy revolution. The enormous number and density of wind turbines means great potential for the production of "green hydrogen" (power to gas; power to X). By converting temporary energy surpluses into transportable hydrogen, renewable energies can also be used independently of the urban infrastructure - without connection to the power grid.
Foundation support association
In the next few years, the island of Heligoland could become a hub for hydrogen produced from offshore wind. By 2035, offshore wind turbines with a capacity of 10,000 MW are to be built between Heligoland and the Doggerbank sandbank. The electricity will be used to produce hydrogen on the high seas and transported to the mainland by pipeline.
For this visionary project, a strong consortium of 27 highly innovative organizations and research institutes as well as internationally leading companies has meanwhile formed and joined forces in the support association Aqua Ventus e.V., whose founding members also include the city of Cuxhaven.
