Natural gas is used to heat 45% of all European households. It is often stated to be the “bridge fuel” until renewable energy sources are setted and can be used comprehensively. Further the current development of the pipeline project NordStream2 displays to which extent the topic is charged politically and which mutual dependencies and tensions between different actors can arise.
During this project we took a closer look into the nature of the fossil energy carrier, its distribution chains, infrastructure networks and involved actors.
Climate change is omnipresent and forces us to develop sustainable strategies that contribute to climate protection. In the energy sector, hydrogen represents a beacon of hope. At the same time, the energy carrier is highly criticized by experts. This leads to our guiding question, "Hydrogen: Post fossil fuel or fairy tale?"
