E.ON and Tree Energy Solutions (TES) have formed strategic partnership to import green hydrogen at scale into Germany. The companies will investigate potential joint investments along the entire hydrogen value chain to build a source for secure, long-term green hydrogen supply.

TES is developing a green energy hub in the German port of Wilhelmshaven. The energy hub will feature a receiving terminal, storage facilities and a clean, zero-emissions oxy-fuel combustion power plant. In addition, TES is developing the production of green hydrogen in solar belt countries and investing in the supply chain and relevant infrastructure. TES will efficiently transport green hydrogen produced from solar electricity, in the form of fossil-free green gas (CH4) to Europe where it is investing in infrastructure to recycle the CO2.

“The ramp-up of a functioning hydrogen economy must have top priority in Germany and Europe,” said E.ON COO Patrick Lammers. “The partnership with TES is an important step on the way to a sustainable energy landscape while ensuring security of supply. It moves us a step closer to net-zero; without the use of green gases such as hydrogen, it will be impossible to completely avoid CO2 emissions.”

“This is an exciting long-term partnership that will allow us to combine relevant experience to accelerate the decarbonisation of the energy chain,” Paul van Poecke, founder and managing director at TES said. “Our ambition is to build the Wilhelmshaven location into a hub for international hydrogen trading and upgrade the infrastructure accordingly. Through this hub TES will supply a mix of green and clean energy to economically lead Europe to reach it net-zero ambitions.”

E.ON is a European electric utility company based in Essen, Germany. It has more than 50 million customers who purchase electricity, gas, digital products or solutions for electric mobility, energy efficiency and climate protection. Tree Energy Solutions (TES) is a clean hydrogen company supplying long term non-intermittent carbon neutral energy on demand at industrial scale.
