To help reach the Paris Agreement goals, a tremendous amount of green hydrogen is necessary.
Siemens Gamesa and Siemens Energy are planning to invest a combined 120 million Euros into the development of a wind-to-hydrogen solution over a timeframe of five years:
“The companies are contributing with their developments to an innovative solution that fully integrates an electrolyzer into an offshore wind turbine as a single synchronized system to directly produce green hydrogen. “
Needless to say how important this wind-to-hydrogen innovation is for our future, in order to replace the current hydrogen consumed worldwide:
“Currently 80 million tons of hydrogen are produced each year and production is expected to increase by about 20 million tons by 2030. Just 1% of that hydrogen is currently generated from green energy sources. The bulk is obtained from natural gas and coal, emitting 830 million tons of CO2 per year, more than the entire nation of Germany or the global shipping industry.”
