H2 INFRASTRUCTURE

A NETWORK OF FILLING STATIONS FOR GERMANY

Motor-racing fans know that the big races are decided at the pit stop. In order to bring H2 mobility onto the road all over Germany, a nationwide H2 infrastructure is currently being built.

The CEP laid the cornerstone for this network of filling stations by defining globally valid standards and norms. To minimise CO2 emissions, the CEP is focusing on ‘green’ hydrogen. Already, at least 50% of the hydrogen at CEP filling stations is produced using renewable energy. Just THINK what we can move with hydrogen.

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.
