System analysis of transport solutions for green hydrogen (TransHyDE)

Funded by: Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)
Project duration:  Mid 2021 – 31.03.2025
Cooperation: More than 20 project partners from science and research institutions & 8 associated partners from the energy industry.


TransHyDE is one of the three German flagship projects on hydrogen, which represent a central contribution of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) to the implementation of the National Hydrogen Strategy. Taken together, they represent the largest funding initiative of the Federal Ministry of Research on the subject of the energy transition to date. They make a decisive contribution to Germany's entry into the hydrogen economy.
