    Real laboratory of the energy transition at the HydroHub

    DESIGNETZ - HydroHub Fenne, Voelklingen, Germany – Real laboratory of the energy transition

    Technology area – Sector coupling and hydrogen technologies

    The real laboratory HydroHub Fenne” for electricity-based hydrogen production with waste heat utilization shall be built and tested on an industrial scale at the Voelklingen-Fenne site in Saarland. Its aim is to reduce CO2 emissions from the sectors involved.

    The real laboratory shall be integrated into the power plant site Voelklingen-Fenne and is to enable, in particular, the provision of system services and sector coupling (electricity-heat-traffic) in an economic way. Against the background of the high system complexity of sector coupling, artificial intelligence will also be used to further optimize the economic operation of the Fenne site.
