At the DEKRA Lausitzring, the DWV HyMobility Commission presented its inaugural key issues paper on the transformation of mobility in Germany.
The paper, entitled “The Transformation of Mobility in Germany – Basics for the Development of Fuel Cell Mobility and the Hydrogen Economy!”, presents crucial recommendations for action across the entire value chain to achieve economical, emission-free, and secure mobility using hydrogen as an energy source.
The paper’s findings highlight the crucial role of hydrogen as an energy source in the mobility sector, especially in industrialized countries like Germany, with an increasing share of renewable energies. Green hydrogen, generated with renewable energies and combined with fuel cells, will play a significant role in emission-free, economical, and reliable freight transport. The study also concludes that achieving the federal government’s climate targets for 2030 is only possible with the inclusion of green hydrogen.
The ambitious climate goals for the transport sector can only be achieved with the operation of at least 200,000 FC trucks (N3/>12t) in Germany using green hydrogen by 2030. However, this requires the implementation of the HyMobility recommendations for action at national and European levels to ensure legal and economic planning security across the entire value chain.
Green hydrogen generation has the potential to store fluctuating renewable energies from wind and sun and make them usable as needed. As a result, Germany will rely on the import of renewable energy in the form of green hydrogen and its derivatives.
Sebastian Kobbelt, the HyMobility project manager, emphasized the importance of hydrogen FC mobility to maintain the international competitiveness of the mobility sector and the green hydrogen industry. The DWV HyMobility expert commission calls for swift implementation of measures to achieve the climate goals in transport, highlighting the significance of green hydrogen as a crucial energy source of the future.
