Hydrogen Economy and Technologies
Hydrogen is a central element of a sustainable economic system. The demand for hydrogen and its derivatives will increase significantly across all sectors in the coming years.
The research focus “Hydrogen Economy and Technologies” is on questions around the ramp-up of a global hydrogen economy. We use techno-economic models to describe current and future hydrogen-based value chains, derive transformation processes, and develop recommendations for regulatory frameworks.

- German National Hydrogen Council
The German National Hydrogen Council [Nationaler Wasserstoffrat, NWR] was appointed by the German government and acts as an independent, non-partisan advisory board. The board consists of 25 high-ranking experts in the fields of economy, science and civil society. The German National Hydrogen Council’s objective is to assist and advise the State Secretaries’ Committee on Hydrogen in the further development and implementation of Germany’s National Hydrogen Strategy [Nationale Wasserstoffstrategie, NWS].
