There is no alternative to using hydrogen for climate protection. Climate change and its ensuing measures require a lot of effort, money, and above all the right solutions. Therefore, a meaningful project, which will be perceived worldwide as a model for complete technological change, is key. That is what the Bonn Climate Project and the CTC Bonn stand for! We can already see great steps towards a hydrogen economy being taken in Germany. Steps are good, but not enough; we need the implementation of a hydrogen economy now! Gulf countries are the ideal future producer and supplier of green hydrogen, due to the very cheap production of electricity from solar power plants.

A large PV factory could be the starting point of a major supply chain that would deliver renewable hydrogen to Europe’s heavy industries, under a scheme backed by some of the continent’s top names. At an EU event earlier this week, Meyer Burger, Hydrogenics, Ecosolifer and European Energy put forward a scheme to build a 2GW-a-year PV manufacturing plant somewhere in the continent. The Silver Frog scheme, presented at the Hydrogen for Climate Conference, would use the PV factory to equip a major downstream solar portfolio meant to power hydrogen generation at a later stage. Up to 10GW in solar farms could be equipped by the 2GW-a-year factory for PV modules and cells, a production involving Meyer Burger and Hungarian PV maker Ecosolifer.
