Hosted by the Energiepark Mainz, this project is testing a PEM electrolyser system with 1,2 Mw capability and with an energy storage capacity up to 6 Mw. Dr. Katharina Beumelburg from Siemens Hydrogen Solutions underlined that electricity market needs to be reformed taking into account energy storage for a reliable RES deployment.

Thyssenkrupp, the steel producer company, referred to its is work on carbon storage and use with the aim to reduce their carbon footprint. The aim of Thyssenkrupp is mixing stored carbon with hydrogen produced from electrolyses for producing synthetic methane.
