This study investigated the economic and climate-related impact potential of hydrogen in a future energy system in North Rhine-Westphalia and Germany as a whole. To this end, the use of hydrogen from water electrolysis is systematically modelled and analysed within the framework of a comprehensive interconnection of sectors (electricity, heat, transport and industry) in the future energy system with an increasing share of renewable energies. In addition to the economic opportunities and challenges hydrogen presents to the relevant energy infrastructures, the focus was also on possible value creation potentials and the transferability of the results to the federal level.
- Ambitious climate protection goals require large electrolysis capacities, seasonal storage and extensive energy transport.
- The increased use of hydrogen will minimise system costs in the long term and promote the integration of renewable energies.
- Hydrogen has positive economic impacts by creating additional value, avoiding energy imports and creating jobs.
