Gaseous energy carriers will continue to be an integral part of the energy transition - hydrogen is expected to play a key role in this process. These are the first results of the "Dialogprozess Gas 2030”, which the German Federal Ministry of Economics presented in October. Even if fossil natural gas will continue to make a significant contribution to supply security in Germany for years to come due to the coal and nuclear phase-out, it is to be replaced in the medium term by CO2-free and CO2-neutral energy sources - this will primarily be hydrogen. This is why the government now pushes forward hydrogen issues. The latest climate resolutions of the German government provide billions of euros in funding hydrogen applications - for the expansion of the infrastructure, for investments in mobility and production. In order to promote the further development of technologies for decentralized hydrogen production, storage and distribution and to position Germany as a pioneer in this field, the government intends to adopt a national hydrogen strategy this year.
Politicians are currently setting the course for a market-driven expansion of hydrogen and are pushing for its integration into our energy system. E-world 2020 will show what this could look like in the future and what the present already looks like. Numerous exhibitors will be presenting at Messe Essen from 11 to 13 February what is already possible with hydrogen and what innovative fields of application are opening up with it.
