The energy transition requires a prompt advancement of environmentally friendly technologies and processes to convert and store energy. In this context the “Power-to-Gas”-process will play a significant role. The process aims at storing wind and solar energy by converting it to hydrogen or methane.
At “Energiepark Mainz” hydrogen will be produced by electrolysis. The energy required for this will partially be supplied by excess power of adjacent wind energy plants.
“Energiepark Mainz” is under realization at a suitable site in the commercial area of Mainz-Hechtsheim. From 2015 on, an innovative research facility will produce green hydrogen.
