Interview Renewables Now: Flexibility is crucial for success of German offshore hydrogen auction

The German government should ensure flexible and not too rigid terms for the much-awaited tender that should award a site in the North Sea for the production of green hydrogen from wind energy at sea, the managing director of offshore wind-to-hydrogen initiative AquaVentus said in an interview.

Flexible conditions are crucial as offshore electrolysis is still in its infancy and requires more research and development, which must be reflected in the tendering process, Robert Seehawer told Renewables Now.
