End-use applications

Global prosperity depends to a large extent on the availability of affordable energy. Therefore, the efficient use of energy in innovative applications is an important pillar of the energy transition. From the user’s perspective, however, the question arises as to the right technology that best meets their specific requirements. Due to its properties, hydrogen offers a wide range of possible uses and different end applications in industry, mobility, heat or power supply. However, its advantages and disadvantages compared to alternative energy carriers must always be investigated and evaluated on an application-specific basis. Individual technical, economic and regulatory factors play an important role here.

We help you to make the right decision with our expertise and a transparent and independent approach.
