Hydrogen for future


The envisaged energy system transformation poses a great challenge for researchers from all across the European Union. Focusing on the goal of being climate-friendly in 2050 places high expectations on hydrogen since hydrogen technologies play a major role in achieving this goal. Hydrogen is supposed to take on tasks such as serving as resource container for renewable energies or allowing its use in terms of mobility.

The Forschungszentrum Jülich is highly committed to researching the different aspects of hydrogen, for example, its cost-effective and sustainable production, how to store and transport it in the most effective way or the research of a system analysis as energy system of the future. Regarding the many aspects of research, the plan of the Forschungszentrum Jülich is to strengthen its role in innovation processes, especially with platforms such as iNEW and the Living Lab Energy Campus. The project "Inkubator für Nachhaltige Elektrochemische Wertschöpfung" (iNEW) wants to connect developers and users to help accelerate their exchange of experiences. Living Lab Energy Campus (LLEC) is a futuristic idea of having a real-life laboratory for the energy system transformation, testing the new research outcomes on its effectiveness and suitability for daily use.
