Currently, around one houndred companies, research institutions and organizations are members of the AquaVentus Förderverein.
DWV is committed to the protection of our nature and environment and the conservation of resources. In this sense, DWV accompanies the design of the development of a hydrogen economy as part of a sustainable energy supply.
In this context, DWV supports the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement, which the international community adopted at COP 21 in 2015. DWV also recognizes the position of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) that climate change is man-made for people and nature.
DWV’s activities focus on a hydrogen economy for a sustainable and low-emission energy supply with the necessary market, technological and regulatory framework for plant construction, generation, transport infrastructure and application technologies. The aim of all DWV activities is to offer our society and our descendants an environment that is worth living in and socially just.
GASCADE is a German long-distance gas network operator based in Kassel. With a 3200-kilometre gas infrastructure, we connect five European countries and thus flexibly and safely supply Germany and Europe with energy.
Gas transport and pipelines are our expertise – we are therefore also committed to the transport of hydrogen. Because we are convinced that the use of hydrogen as an energy carrier is indispensable for the energy transition and the achievement of climate targets. In the future, hydrogen will be a binding element between all sectors and enable the further integration of renewables and climate-neutral energy sources.
Our mission is to transport gas safely, reliably, and economically. Due to the geographical location of our transport network, we play an important role in the heart of the northwestern European gas market. As one of Europe’s leading gas infrastructure companies, our services make a major contribution to the economy and society. Our network connects suppliers and end users of energy, and as an international hub it serves European gas transit.
Well equipped for the future:
German LNG Terminal is planning to build and operate a combined import and distribution terminal for LNG in Brunsbüttel. The Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau (KfW) on behalf of the German government, the Dutch Gasunie LNG Holding B.V. and RWE will jointly drive the project forward. Gasunie will operate the LNG terminal.
The shareholder structure with highly experienced companies not only ensures that the project will be completed as quickly as possible, but also that it will gradually be used for climate-neutral energy sources. Right from the start, it is planned to convert the terminal for the import of green hydrogen or its derivatives.

As an emission-free alternative to petroleum, green hydrogen is a key component of the energy transition. The AquaVentus initiative intends to set signals worldwide with climate-friendly hydrogen technology and uses Heligoland as an optimal real laboratory to contribute to the goals of the German and European hydrogen strategy in a sustainable way.
AquaVentus’ visionary project: 10 gigawatts of generation capacity for green hydrogen from offshore wind energy by 2035 and its transport on land. One million tons of green hydrogen per year could soon be produced.
The plans and visualizations presented show that Heligoland will continue to be a unique natural paradise and will not develop into an industrial island. Accordingly, the unique character of the island is not touched. Thus, the people of Heligoland are once again demonstrating their pioneering spirit and showing the world that what is being developed here on the island can very well serve as a blueprint for other locations.
