The initiative links in with the existing H2 Mobility and Clean Energy Partnership infrastructure projects, which are being subsidised by the National Innovation Programme. “By systematically developing hydrogen technology, Germany can assume a pioneering role in this field and establish itself as the industry leader as we move towards emission-free mobility,” said Linde CEO Wolfgang Reitzle.
The new facilities will be located in the current hydrogen centres of Stuttgart, Berlin and Hamburg as well as along two new continuous north-south and east-west axes. The aim is to use existing sites belonging to different petroleum companies that are strategically located in the traffic network.
According to Linde authorities, joining up these urban centres by means of corridors along the arterial roads between them is a major step forward towards the establishment of a nationwide public H2 infrastructure.
