German hydrogen cluster receives funding

Cluster will have a particular focus on hydrogen transport technologies

A new German hydrogen cluster has received €860mn ($737mn) in funding from the federal government. The Helmholtz cluster in the Rheinische Revier area of the state of North Rhine-Westphalia will research, develop and demonstrate technologies for the production, transport and use of green hydrogen, and will be known as HC-H2. Research will initially focus on technologies relating to the injection of hydrogen into natural gas networks and the transport of hydrogen in liquid form by attachment to easily liquefiable carriers that can be handled in a similar way to conventional fossil fuels—known as liquid organic hydrogen carriers (LOHCs). LOHCs allow hydrogen to be carried on ships or trucks
