For its project ecoPtG, the RLI is seeking out companies aiming to integrate the application of hydrogen in their business process. This could concern the supply of gas stations, passenger and commercial vehicle fleets, logistics hubs, trains, ships, and industrial processes as well as the use of hydrogen for energy storage. For these cases, real scenarios are sought for which we will then generate feasibility studies.
“Our aim, from the point of view of energy research, is to find the optimal combination of hydrogen production and use in order to draw conclusions regarding the economic and ecological advantages of this technology,” explains project manager Oliver Arnhold, who is head of the research field Mobility with Renewable Energy at RLI. “Naturally, we are especially interested in integrating real-life industry issues in the research project. In return for participation in the study, companies will receive a scientific evaluation of the use of hydrogen in their business process.”
In the ecoPtG project, RLI together with IAV GmbH, Wasserelektrolyse Hydrotechnik GmbH, and the ZSW is developing a modular low-cost electrolysis system with support from the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy.
