Hydrogen for energy
Hydrogen for a sustainable and secure energy transitionCombating climate change requires the decarbonization of economic systems worldwide including all carbon-emitting sectors. More and more countries, regions and companies are committing themselves to climate neutrality and see hydrogen as key energy carrier to reach net zero CO₂ emissions in the future for those sectors in industry, mobility and energy that cannot be decarbonized by electrification.
These benefits position clean hydrogen as a central vector, capable of connecting all carbon emitting sectors. It will thus shape and accelerate the transition into a carbon free energy society and economy.
"In answering the question of how we can meet the world’s growing energy needs while protecting the climate, hydrogen will be an important lever. It allows to decarbonize different sectors and to transport or store renewable energy. At Siemens Energy, we will continue to drive the development of a hydrogen economy."
Christian Bruch, CEO Siemens Energy
Hydrogen for Energy - How to make an existing natural gas infrastructure fit for hydrogen operation
Technologies of the future are not new to us. We have been working with hydrogen for decades. This makes our solutions proven and safe and makes us reliable technology and integration experts for all H2 application areas.
With continuous investments and proven experience in developing diverse turnkey solutions in the energy sector worldwide, we are a reliable partner across the entire hydrogen value chain – today, tomorrow and in the future.
We aim to lead the energy transition with renewable and low-carbon hydrogen solutions, including one of the world's largest Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) electrolyzer expected to reach 1 gigawatt by 2030 and hydrogen-ready gas turbines.
Fraunhofer Hydrogen Lab Görlitz – An important step towards energy transition
A new research platform will move into the Siemens Energy Innovation Campus in Görlitz at the end of 2022. In the future, new technologies for the production, storage and use of hydrogen for fuel cells can be developed and tested.
How to pack up your power
To fight climate change we need carbon neutral energy production and distribution. Energy storage solutions will play an important role in reaching the goal of a decarbonized future.
Sector Coupling and Power-to-X – Climate-neutral energy
Sector coupling is the energetic link of sectors like power, energy, mobility, industry or building. It acts as a link between renewable energy sources (wind, solar, water...) and consumers.
Power-to-X as the key technology in sector coupling allows us to transform and save energy from renewable ressources in a chemical form for long-term storage and use, with green hydrogen and its derivatives as the core component.
We want to decarbonize the energy systems of the future with all our might. Governments around the world have started to develop hydrogen strategies and appropriate policies.
As a competent partner, consultant and innovator with deep expertise in the field of energy, we build and shape the hydrogen economy from the very beginning. We develop and integrate technologies to cover the entire end-to-end value chain – from wind parks through power transmission, large-scale industrialization of water electrolysis, as well as compression, transport, storage and hydrogen-based power and heat generation.
To create a hydrogen economy that is sustainable and profitable in the long-term, we are working closely with partners from government, academia and industry.
