The international Hydrogen Marketplace

Do you want to search for hydrogen producers and consumers and plan the infrastructure of tomorrow completely digitally? This has been possible since March 2022 with the free hydrogen marketplace. Connect with business partners along the entire hydrogen value chain.

The challenge of hydrogen:
Hydrogen economy ramping up

The hydrogen economy has been experiencing a steady upswing since the preference for climate-neutral and environmentally friendly energy supply. According to forecasts by the German Bundestag, hydrogen demand will be 110 TWh in 2030 and is set to rise to 450 TWh by 2050. However, the procurement of the gas is problematic. Many players need hydrogen, while many players have a surplus. The challenge lies in connecting the players along the entire hydrogen value chain.

Wir sind Partner des Projekts HyTruck

Facilitating the development of a transnational network of GREEN hydrogen refuelling stations (HRS) suited for large trucks in the Baltic Sea Region

Localiser RLI GmbH is a partner of the HyTruck project as part of the international hydrogen marketplace. 

The objective of HyTruck is to support public authorities in steering the development of a transnational network

of GREEN hydrogen refuelling stations (HRS) suited for large trucks. The EU Regulation AFIR requires member

states to take action and plan HRS in parallel to the ramp-up of H2 technology in the transportation sector. The

build-up of a transnational HRS network is a complex process with a spatial, economic, environmental and

technological dimension. HyTruck is developing solutions that equip public authorities with the capacity and toolsto elaborate spatial development concepts, provide the regulatory framework, ensure common standards anddesign public co-funding programmes. Ultimately HyTruck works towards zero – emission international road

freight transport in the BSR.

Main results

  • Web-based GIS tool for planning HRS

  • Environmental and techno-economic model for HRS

  • Common technological standards

  • Roadmap to planning HRS infrastructure

  • Memorandum of understanding on harmonised technological standards

  • Transnationally agreed spatial development concept

Budget

2.56 million EUR involving 2.05 million EUR ERDF funds

Partnership

  • Ministry of Economics, Infrastructure, Tourism and Labour Mecklenburg-Vorpommern (Lead partner) - more

  • Ministerium für Verkehr und Kommunikation der Republik Litauen - more

  • Polish Alternative Fuels Association (PSPA) - more

  • Vidzeme Planning Region - more

  • University of Tartu - more

  • Chalmers University of Technology - more

Localiser RLI GmbH is responsible for digital networking the stakeholders of the BSR countries in the hydrogen marketplace and generating the offers and requests so that we can aggregate this information. We are working on a one-stop store that summarizes the most important project results.

The project HyTruck is supported by the Interreg Baltic Sea Region Programme 2021-2027.

Hydrogen Marketplace

Hydrogen-based business models need a secure hydrogen supply. To this end, we at Localiser are developing Germany's first web-based, digital hydrogen marketplace.

What does this mean for you?

1

We can geo-reference hydrogen supply and demand in your region

2

This enables you to prepare your regional hydrogen exchange or hydrogen marketplace

3

We set up the whole thing completely digitally

4

And you use this data to set up a suitable hydrogen infrastructure in your region

5

You will find the best business partners along the entire hydrogen value chain

What does the hydrogen marketplace do?

Hydrogen-based business models need a secure hydrogen supply. To this end, we at Localiser have developed Germany's first web-based, digital hydrogen marketplace. The hydrogen marketplace enables the data-supported, geo-referenced representation of hydrogen locations in Germany and in this way makes hydrogen demand and hydrogen production visible. Around 500 companies are already registered in the hydrogen marketplace.

What level of detail is possible?

We know that not all hydrogen is the same. It exists in different qualities - depending on the application, for example in transport or heat. In addition, the pressure level and the ecological footprint are different. This information is displayed and taken into account in the hydrogen marketplace.

Challenge of hydrogen infrastructure and green hydrogen economy: Multiple applications of hydrogen for the energy transition

Hydrogen is more topical than ever. As a secondary energy carrier, hydrogen (H2) is an important building block for a sustainable energy supply based on renewable energies. By coupling the sectors of transport, heat and electricity, fossil energy sources can be substituted in the long term. The prerequisite is the availability of a coordinated hydrogen infrastructure.

When establishing such a hydrogen infrastructure, all steps from H2 production to H2 distribution and storage to H2 application must be taken into account. The necessary coordination processes between the areas and the respective players are correspondingly diverse and complex.

The options for hydrogen generation and production are:

  • Electrolysis using electricity from renewable sources

  • Hydrogen as a by-product of the chemical industry

  • Thermal gasification of biomass and waste

  • Steam reforming of biogas/natural gas

For distribution are available:

  • Distribution via pipelines

  • Distribution via trailers

  • Gas networks

Hydrogen plays to its strengths particularly in the storage of energy due to the natural fluctuations in energy production from renewable sources:

  • Natural gas storage facilities such as caverns for storing large quantities of hydrogen

  • Gas grids themselves can serve as a storage medium. For example, up to a 5% volume share can already be fed into the natural gas grid for regulatory purposes.

  • In addition, there are a variety of other local storage options (hydrogen hubs)

The possible applications of hydrogen are also diverse:

  • Applications in transport, especially in the field of public transport, heavy duty transport, as well as in the passenger car sector as fuel in fuel cells

  • Stationary combined heat and power fuel cell systems for buildings and neighborhoods

  • Heating and industrial sector with a wide range of applications

These multiple possibilities of hydrogen for the energy transition also pose an enormous challenge. The key questions are

  • How should the appropriate hydrogen infrastructure grow along with the share of renewables?

  • What "green" hydrogen generation capacity will emerge, where, and at what scale?

  • Which consumers will rely on the use of hydrogen and when?

  • Which of the sectors, such as industry, mobility, heat sector and sectors of material use, will need which quantities and in which hydrogen quality?

  • How can the different activities for the development of a hydrogen economy be combined and synergies be used?

  • When and where are large hydrogen hubs worthwhile?

This is where Localiser, as the first web-based hydrogen infrastructure planning platform, provides a fast and straightforward way for all stakeholders to communicate. Contact us today to learn how we can support you with your hydrogen infrastructure projects.

The hydrogen marketplace and its origins

In collaboration with Brandenburg's Minister of Economic Affairs Jörg Steinbach and Berlin's Senator for Economic Affairs Stephan Schwarz, Localiser has developed a platform that simplifies and completely digitizes the exchange of hydrogen. The aim is to accelerate the growth of the hydrogen economy in the long term.

April 2022

Oktober 2022

The first hydrogen marketplace for the Berlin-Brandenburg region was finally launched in April 2022. More than 450 projects were already planned and launched with its help within the first few months. The high demand and growing interest in the hydrogen marketplace inspired Localiser to make the marketplace available beyond the borders of Berlin-Brandenburg.

 

The hydrogen marketplace has been available and usable throughout Germany since October 2022. Since then, it has been possible for anyone to offer or search for hydrogen via our hydrogen marketplace.

The hydrogen marketplace offers the networking of all players along the entire hydrogen value chain, from production and transportation to the use of hydrogen.

 

With the hydrogen marketplace, Localiser wants to create a better overview of hydrogen availability and help to find partners in this area. The hydrogen marketplace is also intended to take a major step towards climate protection and drive forward the energy transition.
