In H2VL, IKEM is examining the legal framework for the establishment of a regional hydrogen value chain in Havelland.



The production of hydrogen is an important component of the energy transition because it allows renewable energy to be stored and used as needed in various sectors. In Havelland, partners from the energy industry, mobility and science have joined forces to establish a regional value chain for hydrogen.

The H2VL project conducted a feasibility study to investigate the processes related to the production, use as well as storage and distribution of hydrogen from a technical, legal and economic perspective.

For this study, IKEM conducted legal analyses and research on the administrative approval practice of hydrogen projects. The researchers evaluated different operator concepts for hydrogen production plants with regard to the legal framework while also considering possible changes in the national and European legal framework.
