Hydrogen technology specialist Enapter has received the NRW. Global Business Award for its investment in the North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW) region, which will see the development of an “Enapter Campus”.
An electrolyser mass production and R&D site, the Enapter Campus development has been supported by €9.3m ($11.2m) in funding from the NRW Ministry of Economic Affairs, Innovation, Digitalisation and Energy for scale up.
Commenting on both its recognition and the development, Sebastian-Justus Schmidt, Chairman of Enapter, said, “We are 100% convinced that choosing NRW for the Enapter Campus was the right decision.
“Enapter is honoured to receive the NRW.Global Business Award, excited to be a part of the landmark hydrogen innovation region that is taking shape here and determined to play a significant role in achieving the regional and national hydrogen production goals with our AEM electrolysers.”
The awarded was presented by NRW Economics and Digital Affairs Minister Prof. Dr. Andreas Pinkwart on behalf of the state-owned NRW.Global Business Economic Development Corporation.
At the ceremony, Prof. Dr. Pinkwart, said, “We are proud that North Rhine-Westphalia’s economic conditions attracted Enapter to invest here. The company brings both the innovative spirit that has always driven our region and the green hydrogen technology that we need for the future.
“With it we will prepare our industry for the coming years and will reduce our CO2 emissions. Enapter will be a key partner as we implement our hydrogen strategy roadmap.”
