Hydrogen is nothing new – and certainly not a new "invention". It has always been everywhere around us: The element with the symbol H and atomic number 1 is the most common chemical element in the universe and was identified as long ago as the 18th century. Hydrogen has been an important raw material in the chemicals industry for 100 years. Today, however, it is more and more in demand as an energy source, especially in the energy industry. For us at E.ON, hydrogen is essential for the energy revolution – and thus would play a major role for a sustainable future in harmony with the climate, resources and the environment.

There is no question that hydrogen as a bridging and future technology is one of the most important energy carriers to help make our world independent of fossil fuels. In particular, green hydrogen will enable us in the near future to significantly reduce CO2 emissions, especially in industry and transport. And that’s why, together with our customers and with numerous experts and our partners from business and politics, we are setting out to establish green hydrogen and its secondary products for further decarbonisation wherever it makes sense – for the energy transition, for climate protection, and for all of us.
