Consulting for hydrogen manufacturers: competent advice for the energy of the future

Consulting for hydrogen manufacturers: competent advice for the energy of the future

Consultancy for hydrogen manufacturers currently gains in importance. And it could hardly be a better starting point for hydrogen manufacturers. Europe’s climate policy is focused on hydrogen as one of the central energy sources of the future. The promising molecule is considered key to the success of the energy transition. Because hydrogen meets the requirements for technologies offering a largely CO2-free energy supply. Hydrogen has both the potential and the ability to permanently change the energy sector.

Hydrogen will be used as a key technology for green electricity in central areas of society – as an energy source or for material use in industry, mobility and the building sector, such as in heating and air-conditioning technology. It can be used as a storage medium in smart sector coupling, thereby further driving the integration and use of renewable energies to decarbonise all energy-intensive sectors.

Hydrogen producers are faced with new opportunities, but also new challenges! Issues of scaling and optimising production processes, legitimate safety concepts for producing and storing large quantities of hydrogen, and building new sales channels or developing new sales markets are difficult to address comprehensively without the support of a wide network of specialists. With regard to competent advice for hydrogen manufacturers, HydroHub is the right contact.

The direction for hydrogen manufacturers is clear: expansion

To achieve the ambitious targets of decarbonising high-emission sectors, the German federal government alone, as part of its National Hydrogen Strategy in June 2020, resolved to provide several billion Euros’ worth of funding for research, development and manufacturing. And it’s a similar story in other European countries, with incentives in place to invest in the new technologies. 

If you and your company operate in the future-oriented field of the hydrogen economy, or are considering entering it, HydroHub can be on hand to assist hydrogen manufacturers as a reliable partner with excellent, 360° expertise from various companies of the TÜV NORD GROUP.

A growing field of research

Researchers are working on different methods of generating hydrogen. A colour theme has been developed here, referencing production processes and the associated greenhouse-gas volumes. Green hydrogen is the lowest in CO2, but is currently also the most expensive option. Looking at the production of ‘turquoise’ hydrogen, for example, we see that it provides long-term opportunities for a positive climate balance. Here methane is utilised from livestock farming or the atmosphere to generate hydrogen.

Photocatalytic water splitting and photo-biological hydrogen production using bioreactors is another broad field of research. All branches of research are working towards the goal of increasing process profitability to support practical usage. 

HydroHub assists hydrogen manufacturers with market-oriented research, feasibility studies and concepts, as well as consulting, engineering and training to facilitate successful business development with optimum safety – for any form of hydrogen production.

Hundreds of specialised services for hydrogen technologies

As a consulting and engineering partner for hydrogen manufacturers, we are aware that, during the ramp-up phase of the market, hydrogen is still produced in grey, blue, turquoise or green form. Despite the differences in processes, there is one thing they all have in common: every hydrogen technology needs to be safe!

Identifying, assessing and handling technical hazard sources and risks have been central tasks of the TÜV NORD GROUP for over 150 years. We have developed in-depth skills in all areas of industry, and now offer hundreds of specialised services, particularly for the hydrogen industry. Our offering ranges from technical, legal and financial due diligence to functional tests of the tiniest of system components. From requirements specifications and customer specifications to concepts for start-up and assembly. 

Wherever hydrogen can be produced and integrated into the industrial value chain, our services are already helping protect against risks and optimise the energy process chain: for hybrid supply, networking, distribution and storage, as well as for electric re-conversion. They will assist you from your initial project idea to logically thought-out cyclical solutions for dismantling and disposal concepts. 

Optimum use of the available technologies, and a gradual switch to green hydrogen, is the declared goal right across Europe, and simultaneously the driving force behind HydroHub’s maximum involvement and flawless consulting for hydrogen manufacturers. 

Let’s work together to discover what’s possible. Contact us and briefly outline your project. We’ll assemble a team of experts in excellent consulting and engineering for hydrogen manufacturers for you.

HydroHub: Special advantages for hydrogen producers

Our advice for hydrogen manufacturers is based on 150 years of expertise and technical knowledge in recognising, assessing and controlling technical hazards. Safety and sustainability have always been the basic principles of TÜV NORD GROUP. Clients benefit from our consulting services for hydrogen manufacturers, especially in the ramp-up phase of the hydrogen market. In this stage, the advantages of our consulting for hydrogen manufacturers are far-reaching: 

  • Integral view of problems
  • High degree of modularity and specialised services
  • Enormous diversification in services and stakeholder groups

As is often the case with innovations, hydrogen also raises the question of acceptance by the public and numerous other industries. In this respect, hydrogen manufacturers also benefit from our hydrogen consulting: HydroHub offers a well-founded, honest assessment of the sustainable application of hydrogen – for example, with regard to its use for industrial users or in mobility. In this way, we help to communicate to the public and industry alike that the long-term expansion of the hydrogen economy has great potential for protecting the environment, and thus help to gain acceptance of technology through our consulting services for hydrogen manufacturers.

We create a pronounced level of understanding and trust among the masses through simplified and transparent communication. In this way, we act as a bridge builder between the innovation-driving hydrogen producers and the users of these technologies in the course of our consulting for hydrogen manufacturers.

Insights into consulting for hydrogen manufacturers

Hydrogen producers face a number of challenges in their daily work, which can be of a technical, economic and infrastructural nature, for example. Regulatory aspects are also an essential aspect for hydrogen producers with regard to production and distribution.

HydroHub supports you in the course of consulting on all these aspects. As an engineering service provider and consultant for sustainable value creation in the project business, you can rely on competence and commitment with regard to our consulting for hydrogen manufacturers. We always act prudently and with an eye to the future – our range of services includes feasibility analyses, technology consulting, expert opinions and project support all the way to plant construction (keyword H2 readiness: e.g. conversion of existing plants and systems).

We prepare expert reports, short reports and other documents along the planning phase.
