Airbus has opened a ZEROe Development Centre (ZEDC) for hydrogen technologies at its Stade site in Germany. “The center will accelerate the development of composite hydrogen-system technologies for storing and distributing cryogenic liquid hydrogen,” said the aerospace group, noting that the ZEDC is supported by public funds.

Gascade Gastransport has signed a grid-connection agreement with HH2E's green hydrogen production site in Lubmin, Germany. The site in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern is expected to start production by the end of 2025. The production plant will be connected to the European Gas Pipeline Link (EUGAL Lines 1 and 2), which will initially transport a blend of natural gas and green hydrogen.
