Our Masterclass

Navigating the hydrogen transition with clarity and speed

Ökonomische Wasserstofferzeugung: Ein „Digitaler Zwilling“ zur Entscheidungsunterstützung

A new hydrogen market is emerging - as it looks with enormous speed, there are still few commercial projects. In this Masterclass we will take a closer look at the reasons for this and the factors that need to be taken into account. Hydrogen investment decisions (still) involve considerable uncertainties along the complex value chain. 

As a market that is still in its infancy, with technologies that are not yet fully developed on an industrial scale and that have not yet been sufficiently tested in long-term operation, which is at the same time essential for the transformation of our economy. How can decisions be supported here? Energy Exemplar & Profas have used their experience in energy system modelling and hydrogen consulting to create a "digital twin" that provides a transparent basis for economic hydrogen production, investment decisions and operating concepts.


Ein neuer Wasserstoffmarkt entsteht - wie es aussieht mit enormer Geschwindigkeit, aktuell gibt es noch wenige kommerzielle Projekte. Woran das liegt und welche Faktoren zu berücksichtigen sind - das wollen wir in dieser Masterclass näher beleuchten.

Wasserstoff-Investitionsentscheidungen bergen (noch) erhebliche Unsicherheiten entlang der komplexen Wertschöpfungskette. Als ein Markt, der noch in den Kinderschuhen steckt, mit Technologien, die noch nicht vollständig im industriellen Maßstab entwickelt sind und die noch nicht ausreichend im Langzeitbetrieb getestet wurden, der gleichzeitig essenziell für die Transformation unserer Wirtschaft ist.

Wie können hier Entscheidungen unterstützt werden? Energy Exemplar & Profas haben aus den Erfahrungen in der Energiesystemmodellierung und Wasserstoffberatung zusammen einen "digitalen Zwilling" geschaffen, der für eine wirtschaftliche Wasserstoffproduktion, Investitionsentscheidungen sowie Betriebskonzepte eine transparente Grundlage bietet.
