Future Lab


Renewable Electricity Dispatch and Expendable
Feedstock-Integrated Net-Zero-Emission Hydrogen Economy

Fundamental research along the entire hydrogen value chain is considered a key instrument for achieving the climate goals of the German government. The integrative research into novel technologies for the production of green hydrogen by means of high-temperature electrolysis and innovative gasification, as well as the synthesis of chemicals and energy carriers (e.g. iso-butanol) based on green hydrogen, can contribute to a reduction of climate changing emissions.

The combination of these three REDEFINE technologies has not yet been investigated in detail. Thus, the state of knowledge is comparably low. In order to change this, several international researchers from various renowned institutions will perform their research on the future of green hydrogen at our Institute of Energy Systems for the next three years. Together, there is an active scientific-academic discourse on current research and development issues as well as a transfer of knowledge and technology. In order to share it with the public, results and insights into current research will regularly published on common communication platforms and special REDEFINE events. This ongoing inner and outer dialogue is considered highly important within the project and forms a core element.

In summary, the future lab REDEFINE H2E combines in an outstanding way the expertise and excellent research of various international scientists with a high visibility of hydrogen research at the Technical University of Munich and thus contributes decisively to the sustainable strengthening of Germany as a research location.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMWF), which is funding the project under the funding code 01DD21005.
