Hydrogen - Potentials, Opportunities and Challenges27.12.2022
Green hydrogen is on everyone's lips and is now firmly anchored in European Energy and environmental policy. The concrete implementation of hydrogen projects is therefore significantly supported by funding. However, many projects show that hydrogen, in addition to all its potential, still poses major challenges: insufficient quantities of green electricity available; the lack of a nationwide distribution infrastructure; the analysis and evaluation of storage in salt caverns; or even the question of possible uses that make technical, economic and climate policy sense. illwerke vkw endowed professor Markus Preißinger has therefore taken a closer look at the potential, opportunities and challenges for use in future energy systems, with particular reference to the framework conditions in Vorarlberg.
