The Hydrogen Initiative aims to develop the Ruhr region into a leading hydrogen region. This is because hydrogen can play a decisive role in the energy transition as an important energy carrier:
Hydrogen can serve as a clean and emission-free energy carrier, especially when produced with renewable energy sources such as wind and solar power. By using hydrogen in various sectors such as transport, industry and buildings, the region can significantly reduce its CO2 emissions and help combat climate change.
Hydrogen technology offers enormous economic potential. The Hydrogen Metropole Ruhr creates the conditions for the development of an efficient hydrogen economy in the region. This includes the promotion of research and development, the establishment of production facilities for green hydrogen and the creation of new jobs in the hydrogen industry.
HyMR promotes cooperation between companies, research institutions and public authorities to develop innovative solutions in the field of hydrogen technology. By sharing know-how and pooling resources, new technologies, applications and business models can emerge that are scalable beyond the region.
The Hydrogen Metropole Ruhr focuses on the expansion of the hydrogen infrastructure. A well-developed infrastructure is crucial to enable the use of hydrogen in the region.
