E.E: What are the most innovative products marketed?

ZSW: The research work on electrolysis, power-to-X (P2X) and fuel cells is high on the agenda at the ZSW – and the bridge linking all these technologies is hydrogen. It is now time to take the next steps in exploiting the potential of hydrogen technologies. The applied research at the ZSW is making it possible to take a rapid route to market, to establish the necessary value-added chains, and to harness support by way of industrial policy. Taking the know-how we have gathered over many years as a basis – and working with our partners from industry and research – we are developing technology modules for the electricity-based production of hydrogen and synthetic fuels, and we are also producing fuel cells for typical applications and testing them on a commercial scale. The transfer of hydrogen technology and innovation from the research environment to related applications is being fast-tracked in “real-world laboratories”.
