Stefanie Peters member of Hydrogen Council

 

On June 10, the German Government adopted a National Hydrogen Strategy. “Hydrogen will be a key commodity for a successful energy transition”, said Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Energy, Peter Altmaier. “This forward-looking source of energy will make an important contribution to meeting climate targets in Germany and across the world.”

The plan provides for 38 measures to create innovation and investment. By 2030, up to five gigawatts of electrolysis capacity is to be built up in Germany. Said Education and Research Minister Anja Karliczek: “We will continue to invest in research and innovation on green hydrogen: its production, storage, transport, distribution and application. A further €310 million will be made available for this in the period up to 2023.”

A National Hydrogen Council is being set up to help consistently further develop the strategy. Stefanie Peters, Managing Partner of NEA GROUP, was appointed as member: “Piston and diaphragm compressors play a central role in the infrastructure of the hydrogen economy. NEA has decades of expertise in this field. With our knowledge, we will contribute to the development of a successful hydrogen economy in Germany.”
