NETWORK OF FILLING STATIONS
The establishment of a nationwide H2 network is progressing. The starting signal for a nationwide H2 infrastructure was given in June 2012, when the German Ministry of Transport and the industry partners Air Liquide, Air Products, Daimler, Linde and Total Germany signed a Letter of Intent to jointly develop a network of filling stations. In the initial phase, the first 50 hydrogen filling stations were built in metropolitan areas and main corridors in Germany. The CEP partners created the technological prerequisites for this with their research and development work.
In 2014, six CEP partners - Air Liquide, Daimler, Linde, OMV, Shell and Total - founded the joint venture H2 MOBILITY. Its task: the rapid, efficient and extensive construction of a hydrogen infrastructure for fuel cell cars. The first goal is to operate 100 H2 stations in seven conurbations (Hamburg, Berlin, Rhine-Ruhr, Frankfurt, Nuremberg, Stuttgart and Munich) and along arterial roads and motorways by 2019. The joint venture H2 Mobility plans to build up to 400 filling stations in Germany with the ramp-up of vehicle numbers.
