Scientific support for the further development of instruments for the market ramp-up of hydrogen and its derivatives (BMWK)
The aim of the project is to provide scientific support to the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK) in the further development of concrete instruments and a national framework for the market ramp-up of hydrogen. This framework shall create stable investment conditions for hydrogen production and infrastructure, avoid undesirable developments in the market and ensure a cost-efficient and target-oriented use of funding. Specifically, technical, economic, energy-systemic and legal analyses will be carried out to enable an overall systemically useful, i.e. cost-efficient, sustainable and secure ramp-up of the hydrogen market. These analyses serve to identify existing obstacles and the need for action for the market ramp-up on the one hand, and to develop science-based recommendations for action for the design of instruments and framework conditions on the other hand.
