Energy Park Bad Lauchstädt
In the project Energy Park Bad Lauchstädt the production, transport, storage and economic use of green hydrogen will be realized on an industrial scale in the Central German Chemical Triangle. A large electrolysis plant of up to 30 MW will generate green hydrogen using renewable electricity from a nearby wind farm produced.
The green hydrogen will then be fed into the hydrogen network of the chemical industry based in Central Germany via a converted gas pipeline and used in the future for urban mobility solutions. In a later stage of the project the green hydrogen will be stored in a specially equipped salt cavern. In this way, all aspects of the intelligent and economically optimal integration of the energy carrier green hydrogen - and thus a large-scale demonstration of sector coupling - are covered in the Bad Lauchstädt energy park.
The successful combination of generation, transport, storage, marketing and use of green hydrogen is considered to be a central component of a secure, sustainable and economical energy supply for the future. The Bad Lauchstädt energy park contributes to researching these future technologies and bringing them to market maturity - for a technologically strong and future-oriented hydrogen region and a successful sector coupling in central Germany.
