Position paper of the Bavarian Hydrogen Alliance about the Bavarian hydrogen economy

The position paper of the Bavarian Hydrogen Alliance about the Bavarian hydrogen economy is a first step towards the development of a Bavarian Hydrogen Strategy. The elaboration of the position paper was accomplished in an extensive consultation process with the companies, associations and institutions represented in the Bavarian Hydrogen Alliance, and was coordinated by the Center Hydrogen.Bavaria (H2.B).

For this purpose, H2.B prepared a first key issues paper, which was sent to the partners of the Hydrogen Alliance in October 2019 with the request for comments. Supplements and other non-controversial comments were directly incorporated into the present position paper. Comments which, according to H2.B’s assessment, were not immediately capable of consensus, were discussed with the alliance partners at network meetings. In addition, further associated companies, associations and private individuals had the opportunity to discuss theses from the network meetings at a stakeholder dialogue and to constructively contribute.

The position paper reflects the views of several or all companies, associations and institutions of the Bavarian Hydrogen Alliance. The participating companies are explicitly listed again below. Overall, it can be stated that the dialogue process with the partners very often led to core theses that could be agreed upon. In particular, this applies to the demand of all partners to quickly set the course for the ramp-up of a Bavarian hydrogen economy.
