Hydrogen in Heat & Power Generation

Valves for sector coupling.

Process description

An essential prerequisite for sector coupling is a synthetic energy carrier that can be made available from electricity, can be used in other sectors, and can also be stored easily and flexibly. Hydrogen meets these requirements.

At present, hydrogen produced in the chemical industry that cannot be used for other purposes is used to generate heat. The latest generations of fuel cell systems, which are operated on the basis of pure hydrogen, can be used in single-family homes for heating as well as for electricity generation.

Furthermore, hydrogen offers the possibility of storing renewable energy, for example in the existing natural gas grid. Subsequently, it can be converted back into electricity using the usual methods for generating electricity from natural gas (gas turbines, combined cycle and CHP power plants). This could be used in the future, especially in times of increased electricity demand and low renewable electricity production.


  • Gas pipelines with a nominal pressure of 80 bar and a nominal diameter of up to 1,000 mm.
