Hydrogen will play an important role in a climate-neutral industrial society of the future. Due to its high energy density and good storage capacity, hydrogen is predestined to close the gap between regeneratively generated electricity and energy-intensive applications in the areas of heat supply, industry and mobility. The diverse applications hold great potential for the industrial production of key components of a future hydrogen economy in Bavaria and beyond.
This makes hydrogen an indispensable building block of our energy and economic policy. In view of the far-reaching economic consequences of the Corona pandemic and the war in Ukraine, hydrogen technologies also demonstrate an important perspective for the long-term economic strengthening and diversification of the Bavarian energy supply.
With the Bavarian Hydrogen Strategy, the Free State of Bavaria aims to bring innovative hydrogen technologies into use quickly and thus promote the phase-out of fossil fuels. In doing so, the Hydrogen Strategy creates an initial framework for action for the future production, transport and use of hydrogen. The Hydrogen Center Bavaria (H2.B) was commissioned to develop a Hydrogen Strategy for Bavaria and began the strategy process immediately after the foundation of the H2.B in 2019.
