How important is hydrogen for the energy transition?
Hydrogen is playing an important role in the transformation to climate neutrality. It can make a long-term contribution to a reduction of the world’s CO2 footprint. It spans different sectors, for example, as an energy carrier for electric power, heating and mobility, along with the steel and chemical industries. Fuel cells are also a key technology. They transform hydrogen and air into electric current, heat and water.
What are the challenges?
An infrastructure for the hydrogen economy and transportation has to be built up as a whole. The development of the technology and the ramp-up of production has to go hand-in-hand over the next few years. We will need large quantities of reliably available, renewable energy at competitive prices. Freudenberg is addressing the new challenges facing the hydrogen economy strategically and systematically.
