Green hydrogen facility opens at Berlin airport
In addition to refueling fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs), the H2BER project also anticipates operation of a combined heat and power (CHP) plant with regeneratively produced hydrogen, and its supply into the public gas network. It thus offers an opportunity to conduct research into the 'energy transition' as a single system.
By 2016, the H2BER partners - Total Deutschland, Linde, McPhy Energy, Enertrag, and 2G Energy - will have invested more than €10 million ($13.7 million), with a further €5 million in public funding from the federal government, coordinated by NOW GmbH.
More than 50 cars and buses in Berlin are already being refueled with hydrogen in the context of the Clean Energy Partnership (CEP) between industry and the federal ministry of transport. ■
