Lhyfe, a player in the production of green renewable hydrogen, has signed its first project powered by solar photovoltaics (PVs). This is the company’s first official project using energy other than wind power. In Brandenburg, Germany, the company will couple its hydrogen production system with ENERPARC AG's 20 MW PV installatioN.
Lhyfe and ENERPARC AG share the development and implementation of individual and customised solutions. Based in Luckau, Brandenburg, this project is intended to serve industry, transport companies, filling stations and municipalities in the region.
The successful transformation of industry and the transport sector towards climate neutrality depends to a large extent on renewable hydrogen. Establishing decentralised production sites at an early stage and making them available to local customers will play a key role in supporting this transformation. In addition, the establishment of local production sites should serve to reduce emerging import dependencies of the EU in the long-term.
The 5 MW plant, which will be wholly-owned by Lhyfe, will produce up to 1200 kg/day of green hydrogen. Construction of the site will begin in the summer of 2022, with the first deliveries scheduled for the end of 2023.
In September 2021, Lhyfe inaugurated one of the world's first industrial production sites for renewable hydrogen from wind turbines. In December 2021, the company announced its first collaboration in Germany with its participation in Deutsche Bahn's H2goesRail project. The company already has approximately 60 projects in France and abroad, and this collaboration with one of the major developers of solar energy in Germany opens up particularly exciting prospects in Germany.
