Aurora analysis forecasts hydrogen volumes needed for pipeline network to fall short of required amount

A brief analysis by Aurora Research has found that the required hydrogen consumption volumes needed for a German hydrogen network may fall short.

The Initiative Energien Speichern (INES) commissioned Aurora Energy Research to undertake the brief analysis, reviewing the hydrogen core grid, part of the National Hydrogen Strategy (NWS).

As part of the NWS, the transmission system operators (TSOs) submitted a draft application to the Federal Network Agency (BNetzA) on November 15, 2023, for the development of an efficient hydrogen network infrastructure. The draft proposed the creation of a hydrogen pipeline network, with a length of 9,721km and a total of 13 cross-border interconnection points to enable hydrogen import and exports with a capacity up to 59GW/h.
