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.
