Germany has begun to prepare for the creation of 12.5 GW of hydrogen power generation

By the end of 2024 or at the beginning of next year, Germany is going to launch the first tenders for the construction and modernization of power plants that will be able to operate on hydrogen, with a total capacity 12.5 GW, writes Reuters  with reference to the German Ministry of Economy.

Two tenders are planned for the construction of 10 GW of new gas generation, the modernization of 2 GW of existing gas generation, the construction of 0.5 GW of fully hydrogen power plants, as well as 0.5 GW of long-term energy storage systems.

Investors are promised state support in the form of subsidies after the stations switch to hydrogen.

The deadline for switching to hydrogen – green (from renewable sources) or blue (from gas) – for the first phase of the project is no more than eight years.

New power plants are going to be built mainly in the south of Germany.
