About AquaVentus

One million tons of green hydrogen per year, produced from wind energy on the North Sea and transported to land by pipeline, that is the vision of AquaVentus. More than 100 companies, organisations and research institutes along the entire value chain are setting standards in Europe and worldwide. The broad-based project family will realize 10 gigawatts of generation capacity, from the demonstrator to the transport infrastructure to the ever-expanding parks.

Why green hydrogen from offshore wind? The synchronicity of production and consumption as well as the transport of green energy are among the major challenges we are facing. Green hydrogen is the key here, not only to avoid grid bottlenecks and cold doldrums, but especially to decarbonize industrial sectors that cannot be electrified. In addition, hydrogen is a central link between the sectors because it can be stored and can be used as a raw material, fuel and energy carrier. The interaction between green electrons and molecules therefore promises solutions for the transformation of our energy and economic system, but also for security of supply.

Setting the course for Offshore Wind Hydrogen production

  • Implementation of the National Hydrogen Strategy: Realisation of the 1GW offshore electrolysis target on the SEN-1 site by 2030 by launching tenders for the AquaVentus pioneer projects in 2024.
  • Expanding WindSeeG: Developing offshore hydrogen into a renewable energy expansion pillar.
  • Offshore hydrogen in FEP revision: To designate the route for the AquaDuctus transport pipeline of at least 10 GW as well as further 10 GW of area potential allocated in the German EEZ.
  • Balancing funding gaps for offshore hydrogen projects in the start-up phase.
  • Acceleration of plans for the development of a northern European hydrogen pipeline network in the North Sea.

AquaVentus Project family

Future technology for green hydrogen

With the help of the projects’ pioneering technical work, the AquaVentus initiative aims to achieve its ambitious goals by 2035. In the long term, however, the AquaVentus project family’s plans also include integration into a European hydrogen network.
