Planning status of hydrogen core network as of July 12, 2023 (with feed-in and feed-out).

On July 12, 2023, the transmission system operators published the planning status for a supraregional hydrogen core network by 2032.

This current planning status does not yet correspond to the final design of the hydrogen core network. The route variants presented will be evaluated and optimized in subsequent steps, taking into account reports received as part of the “opportunity to comment” from potential hydrogen network operators. The pipelines shown have a length of around 11,200 km. The TSOs expect the hydrogen core network to be smaller after optimization.

A total of 309 hydrogen projects were considered in the hydrogen core network scenario. The feed-in capacities for hydrogen total 101 GW. Other feeds include, in particular, imports via ship terminals where hydrogen transported in another form, such as LOHC or ammonia, is fed into the hydrogen grid as a gas. The core grid can provide 87 GW of exit power for hydrogen supply.
