Scot2Ger | Development of a Green Hydrogen Supply Chain between Scotland and Germany
01 Feasibility As the feasibility study shows the import of green hydrogen to Germany is necessary and technically feasible in principle.
02 Costs The Scot2Ger work shows that transport of hydrogen (or its derivatives) in liquid form is less than half the cost of transporting hydrogen in gaseous form, principally due to higher energy density.
03 Hydrogen vectors Liquid hydrogen has proven to be the most attractive vector for this demonstrator. In addition, there are other attractive forms, such as ammonia and LOHC, which may become interesting in the future when dealing with different use cases and scales.
04 Transport For the transport of hydrogen from Scotland to Germany the chartering of ships is recommended. For onward transport within Germany rail currently represents the best option.
05 Ports The study identified the port of Rotterdam in the Netherlands and the port of Wilhelmshaven in Germany as interesting options for import ports for the identified use cases.
06 Off-taker Use cases for the off-take of green hydrogen in the mobility, energy and heating markets were identified and the ramp-up of demand to 2030 was analysed.

The UK’s recent increase in hydrogen production ambition, to 10GW by 2030 as stated in the Energy Security Strategy, demonstrates the significant role hydrogen is expected to play in the future energy mix. Developing 100% hydrogen networks is..
I seem to be settling in to around monthly “EV…” posts. One excuse for this post was a good article from Forbes on new EVs from next year and later.
The Green Deal Industrial Plan will be structured around four pillars, all relevant for hydrogen technologies and their applications:

The Energy Central Power Industry Network is based on one core idea - power industry professionals helping each other and advancing the industry by sharing and learning from each other.
If you have an experience or insight to share or have learned something from a conference or seminar, your peers and colleagues on Energy Central want to hear about it. It's also easy to share a link to an article you've liked or an industry resource that you think would be helpful.
