  • French green hydrogen manufacturer Lhyfe has actually authorized its initial project powered by solar photovoltaics in Germany, which is intended to serve regional industries, transportation business, loading terminals and districts.

The 5 MW plant, which will be entirely owned by Lhyfe, is expected to approximately 1200 kg of green hydrogen a day. Construction of the website will certainly begin in the summer of 2022, with the very first shipment arranged for completion of 2023.

In Brandenburg, a German community west of Berlin, Lhyfe will certainly couple its hydrogen production system with the 20 MW solar installment by ENERPARC, among the country's crucial photovoltaic or pv programmers. This is the Lhyfe's initial main project making use of energy other than wind power, as well as the firm believes that the establishment of neighborhood manufacturing sites need to serve to lower arising import dependencies of the European Union in the long-term.

" For the competitive manufacturing of green hydrogen, a favourable electrical energy supply is of crucial relevance. The direct supply of in your area generated solar electrical power for electrolysis is for that reason specifically efficient. This project is a very important collaboration that additionally expands the ideology of both firms: a sustainable eco-friendly as well as at the same time economic makeover of the energy field," states Armin Scherl, Head of Solution Engineering at ENERPARC AG.

Matthieu Guesné, Lhyfe's founding president, adds: "We are delighted to reveal this 2nd project in Germany. And we are a lot more pleased with this project as it will certainly be our initial main project making use of a power apart from wind. In order to make a success of the power change, we need to adapt to all the renewable energies available in the areas, therefore we are extremely keen to participate in Brandenburg's transition with ENERPARC's solar power."

In September 2021, Lhyfe apparently inaugurated the world's initial industrial manufacturing site for eco-friendly hydrogen from wind turbines. The business currently has around sixty projects in France as well as abroad.
