The Cologne region, or on a larger scale the Rhineland as a whole, has a wide-spread chemical industry, that has been producing large amounts of hydrogen as a by-product for decades. HyCologne has taken the leadership in an initiative to supply this hydrogen for ambitious trendsetting projects at attractive conditions.
This makes sense because in the future a sustainable safe & secure energy economy will rely on hydrogen as an efficient energy carrier. In combination with highly efficient fuel cell applications hydrogen offers excellent opportunities to fulfil global climate protection goals and decouple the world?s energy supply from fossil sources of energy. Especially in the traffic and transport sector the framework has been set to reduce (CO2-) emissions by means of electrical drive concepts that will work much more efficiently in the conversion of energy input and power output than today.
