Germany’s first large facility to convert wind power to alternative hydrogen fuels will shortly enter development. Power and gas grid firms Amprion and Open Grid Europe (OGE) said they are now ready to apply to build a 100MW hydrogen plant. The ‘hybridge’ site in Lingen, north-west Germany, is expected to enter operations from 2023. The firms say converting electricity to hydrogen makes it much easier to store and transport than alternative mechanisms, as well as having the benefit of reducing the strain on traditional power cables. They say this will become increasingly important as more renewables are put onto the grid.
