We agree with the vision of hydrogen as an alternative energy carrier. We want to store it in the future and are already making the relevant preparations today.
There is more and more talk about hydrogen as a medium for the storage of energy which can become a sustainable alternative to today’s sources in the future. We agree, and believe that the importance of hydrogen and other ‘alternative’ gases like biomethane will grow. And we want to be ready.
The University of Chemistry and Technology Prague and the Czech Academy of Sciences
In cooperation with the University of Chemistry and Technology Prague and the Czech Academy of Sciences, we are investigating the mutual interactions between hydrogen and the steel materials, operating fluids and chemicals we use for the operation of our underground storage facility.
Deutsche Wissenschaftliche Gesellschaft für nachhaltige Energieträger, Mobilität & Kohlenstoffkreisläufe e.V. is a German non-profit organisation that focuses on research into sustainable technology options. With our sister company MND Energy Storage Germany, it is investigating the influence of hydrogen on equipment in underground wells, which is a specific area separate from the mentioned interactions with materials used in equipment on the surface. We will also use the results of this research in the Czech Republic.
