In order to produce sufficient green hydrogen, electrolysers must be built on a large scale – and therefore plants that supply the required renewable electricity. ENERTRAG is doing both. The four electrolysis sites are located in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Brandenburg and Saxony-Anhalt and form a transnational corridor along the doing hydrogen pipeline. The most important customer for the hydrogen is the Concrete Chemicals subproject at the Rüdersdorf site.

„Renewable energy needs hydrogen as a universal storage medium in order to balance generation and consumption. The development of a sustainable hydrogen infrastructure depends entirely on the consistent expansion of renewables. Eastern Germany offers the best conditions for this, which we must exploit as quickly as possible.“
