BERLIN/OLDENBURG, Germany — Hydrogen developer Tree Energy Solutions (TES) and German utility EWE have signed a memorandum of understanding to build an electrolyzer at TES’ Green Energy Hub in the port of Wilhelmshaven.
This should be installed and operated starting in 2028, with an initial planned capacity of 500 MW and potentially a second unit, lifting eventual capacity of 1 GW.
Germany’s government is pursuing a strategy of clean energy generated by renewables projects the North Sea. According to TES/EWE, the hub in Wilhelmshaven is strategically located on the North Sea coast and can accommodate up to 2 GW-capacity electrolyzers with renewable energy sources such as offshore wind for locally produced green hydrogen.
The partners see synergies such as the joint connection to the national grid or the use of oxygen in other green energy processes.
