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.
