EnBW TO PRODUCE 720 TONS OF GREEN HYDROGEN PER YEAR AT WYHLEN HYDROPOWER PLANT
From 2025, the new power-to-gas plant at Energiedienst’s Wyhlen hydropower plant will produce up to 720 metric tons of green hydrogen per year. The largest production capacity for green hydrogen in southern Germany is currently being built on the German-Swiss border at the Wyhlen hydropower plant operated by EnBW subsidiary Energiedienst. From 2025, up to 720 metric tons of green hydrogen per year will be available to supply industrial and other customers in the border region of Germany, Switzerland and France. By requesting proposals for these quantities, EnBW is already taking a first step towards marketing hydrogen as an energy carrier of the future. In this way, the company is offering prospective customers the opportunity to secure capacity volumes for a sustainable and future-proof energy supply. The request for proposals starts on 17 April 2023.
EnBW subsidiary Energiedienst already operates an alkaline power-to-gas plant at Wyhlen with an electrolysis capacity of one megawatt. This has been producing green (carbon-free) hydrogen since 2019. The Whylen Real-world Lab project is set to increase the site’s capacity by an additional five megawatts with the construction of a new plant scheduled for completion by 2025.
