Hydrogen from sun and wind will be produced in Ukraine and stored for seasonal demand in Central Europe in the future.
The goal of the H2EU+Store project is to accelerate and ramp up production of green hydrogen for use in Europe, as part of the climate neutral energy future. "H2EU+Store" will on the one hand create the necessary capacities for renewable electricity and hydrogen production in Ukraine and on the other hand the expansion of storage volumes in Austria and Germany, accompanied by adaptations in the area of gas transport to Central Europe.
The initiative is being implemented by an international industrial consortium, comprising Bayerngas GmbH, bayernets GmbH, Eco-Optima LLC, Open Grid Europe GmbH and RAG Austria AG.
"This infrastructure project is indispensable for the future security of energy supply in Austria and Germany; only in this way sufficient green energy will be available for electricity, heat, industry and mobility throughout the year."
