More cost-effective means of producing green hydrogen to power vehicles


Renewable hydrogen can be the ticket to greener transportation, but the costs will have to come down first. The power industry and researchers are conducting trials in an industrial power-to-gas plant in the southern German town of Grenzach-Wyhlen to investigate ways of cutting costs. As of April 2020, the megawatt plant had been on line for four months and running reliably. An on-site research electrolyzer is also operating very successfully. The Centre for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research Baden-Württemberg (ZSW) is coordinating this project. Energiedienst AG, a power company, operates the commercial plant.
